SKID ROW Guitarist Suffering From Carpal Tunnel Syndrome; Sayreville Show Postponed

SKID ROW have cancelled their previously announced November 26 show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey. The group's guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo is reportedly suffering from the carpal tunnel syndrome (the swelling of the tissue around the median nerve caused by repetitive motion of the fingers or wrist) and will need a few more weeks to fully recover before being able to perform with the band. SKID ROW's cancellation will not affect former RAINBOW/DEEP PURPLE frontman Joe Lynn Turner's scheduled November 26 appearance at the Starland Ballroom.

SKID ROW are expected to reschedule the Sayreveille date to sometime in February.

SKID ROW's current recording/touring lineup includes drummer Dave Gara (GARGANTUA, ex-BETTY BLOWTORCH, former NASHVILLE PUSSY drum tech), who replaced Phil Varone (ex-SAIGON KICK) in May 2004. Varone had previously left SKID ROW for "personal reasons" and was replaced for a short time in January 2004 by Orlando, Florida native Tim DiDuro.

SKID ROW's latest CD, "ThickSkin", was released in August 2003. A follow-up effort is expected to surface in early 2006 via SPV Records.
