Skid Row Frontman Is A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ‘N Roll

AUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Skid Row frontman Johnny Solinger can’t deny his two-timin’ redneck roots.

Solinger – who replaced Sebastian Bach as Skid Row’s frontman in 2000 – is releasing a self-titled country album on May 6, and admits he’s been two-timin’ the rock and country music genres for years.

The leap from rock to country feels “completely natural” to him because that’s what he grew up listening to in his homestate of Texas.

He says, “I remember going to keg parties as a teenager and listening to AC/DC one minute and Johnny Cash the next. That’s how we do it in Texas – rock and country meshes.”

Between Skid Row concerts, Solinger hopes to play for country- lovin’ fans in honky tonks all over the U.S., and is bracing himself for pure country craziness.

He says, “Hard-core country fans are just as wild as rock fans! They love to party.”

As for his Skid Row bandmates, they’re fully supporting his venture into country.

He explains, “We all have side projects like this, so they’re really cool about it. They know I’m just a redneck from Texas and they love it!”
