Fan-filmed video footage of former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach‘s August 6 performance at the Heavy Montreal festival at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be seen below.

Bach‘s long-awaited autobiography, “18 And Life On Skid Row”, which was scheduled to be released in June, will now arrive on September 27 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. Bach told the Rock 100.5 The KATT radio station: “It’s been delayed because it’s a very big project — six hundred pages with lots of pictures. They asked me for thirty pictures; I gave them a hundred and sixteen. And I’m, like, ‘It’s my book, dude.’ [Laughs] It’s got a lot of stories of crazy shit that I did. But there is a beginning and an end to it, like a story arc, because my life was very weird.”

Bach revealed that he “wrote the whole thing” himself without the help of a co-writer and mentioned recent books by Keith Richards (THE ROLLING STONES), Paul Stanley (KISS) and Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES) as ones that he found particularly interesting. He said: “I love [punk rock icon] Henry Rollins‘s writing. If my book had any kind of the power of that, I would be honored. ‘Cause the way he writes is very impactful. Every paragraph, you wanna read it over and over.”

Asked what was different about branching into the literary world compared to being in the music business for so long, Bach said: “You still have to fight for what you believe in and stick up for what you think is cool. Dave Grohl [NIRVANA, FOO FIGHTERS], he said one of the biggest things in rock and roll is you have to learn how to say ‘no,’ because there’s always people trying to get you to do shit that’s not cool.”
