SKID ROWs sångare har valt att lämna bandet. Nu meddelar bandet vem som ersätter hans roll.
Johnny Solinger, som bandets sångare heter, har valt att lämna SKID ROW för att satsa på sin solokarriär, något som han berättar i ett officiellt uttalande som du kan läsa här:
“I have decided to leave SKID ROW to pursue my solo career. The past 15 years has been a great experience and I have appreciated the opportunity to be the lead singer in one of the most prominent bands of the 1990s and share stages with the likes of AEROSMITH, BON JOVI and KISS, performing in front of millions throughout the world. I wish SKID ROW the best of luck in their future pursuits.”
Bandet har i samband med ett uttalande på radio meddelat att nya sångaren i bandet är ingen mindre än förre detta sångaren i TNT, Tony Harnell. Dave “Snake” Sabo berättar:
“Rachel Bolan and I have known Tony for a really, really long time, and always have admired him as a singer and as a front guy. He’s a really good guy. I think we all found ourselves kind of in a crossroads, so to speak — at kind of like a… pretty much much serendipitous moment in our lives. And so the thought was in the back of our heads that, ‘You know what?! Maybe we should reach out to him.'”

“New York, NY – After 14 years of touring and 4 releases, SKID ROW has released singer Johnny Solinger. Founding member Snake Sabo said, “We had a lot of great times together and created a lot of great music. We wish him nothing but the best. Sometimes things just end. People go in different directions and grow apart and you have to make a decision. He will always be our brother, adds co-founder Rachel Bolan. The vacancy for a new front man has been filled by powerhouse vocalist Tony Harnell. This news comes hot of the heels of his departure from Norway based band, TNT.
Tony’s experience, power and undeniable range made our decision an easy one” commented guitarist Scotti Hill. Drummer Rob Hammersmith added, “I believe this will be a great year for SKID ROW. I’m looking forward for things to come.” When asked about joining forces with SKID ROW Harnell said, “I’m so excited and honored to be a part of such a great band with an amazing legacy and legions of faithful fans! The guys and I have known each other for many years and this is such a natural fit. I look forward to getting out there and playing live together and being a part of making new music and creating our future together. It’s time to rock!” The band will head into the studio to record the third chapter of the United World Rebellion trilogy this summer. They will also hit the road for another world tour in support.
