The release of former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach’s autobiography 18 And Life On Skid Row has been delayed.

It was due to be released in June, but Bach tells The Katt: “It’s been delayed because it’s a very big project – 600 pages with lots of pictures.

“They asked me for 30 pictures; I gave them 116. And I’m, like, ‘It’s my book, dude.’ 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.”

Publishers HarperCollins say the book will arrive on September 27.
