Skid row has not had one single hit song in 14 years.
It's been 14 years since Sebastian left the band and he's still going strong.
So linger is an okay singer but he can't do justice to the original songs.

Ugly kid joe will be great to see live.

Is sebastian gonna be there? Honestly I'm 12 and I LOVE Skid Row to death and seeing Sebastian would be ahmazing and my mum would cry.. honestly and seeing Ashley Purdy (my everything) do a cover of I remember you was literally the most amazing thing but as much as I love him the original is way better if that song didn't exsist neither would I for many reasons thought I'd just put that out her

Would be great to see Skid Row but without Sebastian it just wont be right.Another band member perhaps but not the singer especially when his vocals were at least 50% of what made those songs great.
