From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Sebastian Bach (born Sebastian Bierk, April 3, 1968) was the lead vocalist of the 1980s heavy metal bands Kid Wikkid, Madam X, Herrenvolk, VO5, and Skid Row. Born in Freeport, Bahamas and raised in Peterborough, Ontario, he eventually changed his last name to "Bach" so that it would resemble composer Johann Sebastian Bach's name. His wife's name is Maria Bach and they have two children named Paris & London. His parents divorced when he was 11 years old. His father was visual artist David Bierk (1944–2002).

Bach was invited to join Skid Row in 1986 when guitarist Dave Sabo heard him sing at a music producer's wedding. Sabo sent him a videotape of the band playing, and Bach subsequently joined the band. After enjoying commercial success as lead singer of Skid Row, Bach was eventually kicked out of the band in 1995 for his wild, in-your-face attitude that attracted media criticism.

He formed Sebastian Bach and Friends after being removed from Skid Row—a band that has since reformed with new singer John Solinger and new drummer Phil Varone. As of late he has been performing in the Broadway productions of The Rocky Horror Show and Jekyll & Hyde. In early 2002 he became the host of VH1's Forever Wild.

In 1990, Bach performed with Guns N' Roses and Metallica, on the same stage, at a party held by RIP Magazine, the improvised name for the band was: The Gak.

In October 2002 he was signed to perform in the national touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar and played the role of Jesus successfully in the show until April 2003, when he was fired for alleged diva-like behavior. He is currently working on a DVD version of VH1's Forever Wild that will be released in June.

He has a role on the WB television show Gilmore Girls as Gil, the guitarist in Lane Kim's band.

He has also reportedly stolen Nardwuar's favorite wool toque.
