Long, lithe and larger than life, former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach took the stage before a wall to wall crowd at Peabody’s Down Under. Bach is now touring on his solo album, Kicking and Screaming. His latest work was well received by the varied and nostalgic crowd, but it was the obligatory Skid Row material, “Slave to the Grind,” “Big Guns” and “Piece of Me” that really got fists pumping. Sebastian Bach is still as sexy today as he was on the back my frayed, dog eared Skid Row album from 1989. The bone structure that won his place on my bedroom wall was just as chiseled as ever, his hair was just as perfectly mussed as it should have been. His voice is in top shape, perhaps due to his recent stint on Broadway; and his head-banging skills are truly a glorious thing to behold. He was low-key in a Spiderman t-shirt and dark denim but his stage presence was still present. He definitely sets the standard for wannabe rockers half his age. Seasoned veteran that he is Bach regaled the crowd with anecdotes of his blurry indiscretions and questionable decisions. They ripped into the title track to his solo album, and even managed to work in the PainmuseuM cover “American Metalhead”. Luckily, the hospitality of Peabody’s allowed us a bird’s eye view of the show. Graciously, we sat crouched in the rafters as he belted out “18 and Life”—clearly an audience favorite. From our perch, we rocked out to hit after hit. Perhaps one of the most chilling moments was looking out over a sea of iPhones, gratitude for I Remember You, without a doubt, one of the most epic ballads of the 1980’s. The hour long set ended with the incendiary “Youth Gone Wild”, leaving the crowd hot, sweaty and screaming for more. It was then that a silly scuffle broke out over what seemed to be a drumhead after the show. The swarming mass of Bach lovers were turned out into the cold Cleveland air a little before midnight, early enough to make it to work tomorrow, late enough to feel like a teenager again.
