Friday, February 9: Tig’s Rock Birthdays
Happy Birthday today (Feb. 9) to Rachel Bolan. The Skid Row bassist and main songwriter is 52. In remembrance, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan (drummer for Avenged Sevenfold) would have been 37 today.
Born James Richard Southworth, Rachel Bolan’s stage name ‘Bolan’ is a tribute to T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan, one of his childhood heroes. Skid Row formed out of Toms River, NJ back in 1986. The band was very successful during the late 80’s and early 90’s. During this time, the band released two multi-platinum albums with the lineup of Rachel Bolan (bass), Sebastian Bach (vocals), Dave "Snake" Sabo (guitar), Scotti Hill (guitar), and Rob Affuso (drums). Skid Row has sold 20 million albums worldwide.
Skid Row return to the Chance in Poughkeepsie on April 14. Get tickets here.
