Sebastian Bach was born Sebastian Philip Bierk in the Bahamas on April 3, 1968. Despite rumors to the contrary, his legal last name is still "Bierk", not "Bach." Sebastian Bach has played in numerous unknown and short-lived bands (e.g. Herrenvolk, Madam X, V05 and Kid Wikkid), and received a demo from Skid Row in 1987. Skid Row signed for Atlantic Records and released their self-titled debut album in 1989. Bach was the frontman in Skid Row until he was dismissed in 1995.
