Sebastian Bach

Home AND Rock Memorabilia

Destroyed In the Hurricane

Sebastian Bach is "numb, in shock and devastated" after his home was COMPLETELY trashed by Hurricane Irene -- causing serious damage to his home and wiping out his "irreplaceable" collection of KISS and Skid Row memorabilia.

Bach posted the sad photo of his New Jersey home on his Facebook -- saying, "Somewhere under this water is a KISS pinball machine & 2 gargoyles from the Dynasty tour. If you see them floating past your house, they're mine. Or at least they were."

The ex-Skid Row frontman says the hurricane caused the reservoir next to his house to overflow -- sending a bridge CRASHING into the home's garage, knocking the house off it's foundation and flooding the basement where the rock items were stored.

In addition to the pinball machine and the gargoyles -- Bach says he lost a TON of Skid Row master tapes and memorabilia.

But Sebastian is taking it all in stride -- using the tragedy as an opportunity for a fresh start on the West Coast -- saying, "Hello, Los Angeles. Hello, New Life. Here I Am. It's time for a new start."

Why didnt he move the stuff to higher ground if he is so worried about it? There was plenty warning it is all that was on the news for days.

note to others in Flood/hurricaine zones = Prior to evacuating the house, move all valuables out of the basement. Basements will always get flooded first. If ou can't take it all with you, then at least move it to a higher floor.

I hope he was just as concerned about other people's lives and property but it is devastating to lose your belongings, they are part of your past and your personal history.

Although I loved Skid Row, this happened to a lot of other people as well.. Maybe not as expensive items but still a major loss to people. He should have moved the smaller items to higher ground but I guess if he wasn't home he couldn't have. Family comes first so as long as they are OK, material things are just a memory now.. I also live in NY and the flooding was terrible. It could have been worse..

OooooNooo!    

He lives next to a reservoir,and has ADVANCED WARNING a freaking hurricane is going to hit New Jersey, and he decides to leave his precious KISS pinball machine in the basement. Did all the drugs cause brain damage?
