SWEDEN ROCK Festival: SKID ROW Out, Y&T In

SKID ROW have cancelled their previously announced appearance at this year's Sweden Rock festival and have been replaced on the bill by Y&T. SKID ROW's decision to pull out of the festival is being blamed on "the fact that [SKID ROW guitarist] Snake decided to bring his wife to be to the altar and other arrangement-oriented problems," according to a posting on the Sweden Rock web site.
