Skid Row bringing music to Wild Bill's

Skid Row began as a group of New Jersey kids determined to conquer the world with their unique blend of punk and metal. Iconic songs such as “I Remember You,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “18 and Life” earned them top 10 singles, gold and multi-platinum sales, heavy MTV rotation and No. 1 status on the Billboard album chart. The world was theirs, the rebellion won, until there was nothing left to fight for — so they fought each other. Following an ill-advised South American tour in 1996, the band split up.

But the core camaraderie never died and Skid Row returned to the stage in 2000, opening for Kiss. They reintroduced the band as relevant without relying too much on past success, bassist Rachel Bolan told City Book. Thick skin and revolutions per minute led to hundreds of live shows, with Johnny Solinger out front, and the highly anticipated albums won over both old and new fans.

Patrons of Wild Bill’s will have the opportunity to watch Skid Row’s latest rebellion up close and personal when the band brings their new EP, United World Rebellion, to the stage on Saturday, July 27, at 9:30 p.m. Produced in a studio in Atlanta, the EP is the first of a series. The upcoming show promises to bring down the house with a mixture of old hits and new. Joining Rachel and Johnny is Dave “Snake” Sabo on guitar, Scotti Hill on guitar and Rob Hammersmith on drums.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 to $30 at the door. Table and stage mezzanine seating is also available. Purchase in advance at www.ticketmaster.com. Wild Bill’s is at 2075 Market Street in Duluth. For more information visit www.wildbillsatlanta.com or call (678) 473-1000.

  • Chester Clark III: A magnificent disappointment

    Could this really be happening?
    Three-and-a-half years earlier their hearts had stirred when they first heard his call. Centuries of Greek and Roman brutality had deepened their desire for the promised Deliverer. Their desires for temporal deliverance had colored even their reading of the Scriptures, until they had convinced themselves that the Messiah’s primary mission would be to deliver them from Rome.

  • The Rev. G. David Henderson: Satan’s worldwide anti-Christ religion — now in our midst!

    Since my devotional last month, many claiming to be followers of Jesus have written the Forum of this newspaper, wrongfully proclaiming God doesn’t require followers of Jesus to obey the moral laws God gave to Moses and Israel — reputably known as the Ten Commandments. The author of our Bible (the Holy Spirit) responds with divine disgust and anger, “such isn’t so” (“God forbid” — Romans 6:15)!

  • Chester V. Clark IIIThe miracle of life

    \With spring in the air and the dogwoods starting to bud, my reflections turn again to the miracle that we call life. Call me simple, easily impressed or perennially forgetful; but isn’t it amazing that dormant plants and trees can come to life again after the bitter cold of winter?
