Solinger who replaced Sebastian Bach as Skid Rows frontman in 2000 is releasing a self-titled country album on May 6, and admits hes been two-timin the rock and country music genres for years.
The leap from rock to country feels completely natural to him because thats 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. Thats 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, theyre fully supporting his venture into country.
He explains, We all have side projects like this, so theyre really cool about it. They know Im just a redneck from Texas and they love it!
