Sebastian Bach’s Home Destroyed By Hurricane Irene
Hurricane Irene didn’t just displace regular people — some celebrities took a hit, too.
“I am numb, in shock and devastated to report that my home of 21 years, my house featured on ‘MTV Cribs,’ has been destroyed, condemned, and deemed uninhabitable due to the extreme flooding courtesy of Hurricane Irene,” he said.
Bach not only lost his house, but many of the irreplaceable items inside — Skid Row master tapes, video, and audio and concert recordings, plus his collection of rare music memorabilia, including his KISS pinball machine.
“All of this is lost now. We will salvage what we can of course. But how I wish there was a reason to do a box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit. Nobody cared. Now, it’s too late. Don’t know what you got till it’s gone, indeed,” he said, quoting the 1988 Cinderella hit.
Bach will now relocate to Los Angeles to be with his new girlfriend, 25-year-old model Minnie Gupta.
His new solo album, ‘Kicking & Screamin,’ is slated for a September 27 release.
