Sebastian Bach Hits the Skids
Irene, Sebastian Bach will remember you. The former Skid Row singer frontman has literally been rocked by disaster after his New Jersey home was destroyed by Hurricane Irene. Over the weekend, the "18 and Life" singer's residence was destroyed after the reservoir next to his house overflowed and damaged a bridge that crashed into his home and flooded the basement. Adding insult to injury is the fact that all of Bach's "irreplaceable" collection of KISS and Skid Row memorabilia was housed in the basement which is now in ruins. Among the priceless valuables he lost were a KISS pinball machine and 2 gargoyles from the Dynasty tour. And that's just for starters. Bach is beside himself over the destruction of his home of 21 years. With his house uninhabitable, Bach has basically lost everything. He took to Facebook to express his overwhelming sadness, telling fans, "I am numb, in shock, and devastated to report that my home of 21 years, my house featured on MTV Cribs, has been destroyed, condemned, and deemed uninhabitable due to the extreme flooding courtesy of Hurricane Irene. There has never been a single drop of water in the basement or anywhere else in the structure. Now Irene has overflowed the reservoir adjacent to my house. The surging waters have snapped the bridge in half next to my house & sent the bridge straight into my garage, knocking the house off of its foundation. The basement that has been dry for over two decades is now overflowing with water and I am not even allowed to start pumping the water out due to fears of electrocution." The only bright spot is that his three children and ex-wife were not injured in the devastating catastrophe. Bach adds that he'll be fleeing to Los Angeles to start over. He tells his followers, "It's all over now. I will always love New Jersey but now there is literally nothing left for me here except memories of a past life. Hello, Los Angeles. Hello, New Life. Here I Am. It's time for a new start, like I have a choice." Bach admits he had been holding onto the house since December when he filed for divorce from his wife of 18 years.
