If you’re a reader under 30, you’ll have to trust us on this one – the following statement is absolutely true: MTV used to play music videos around the clock, during the days when no one had even conceived of a "Jersey Shore" reality show (in fact, the cast of "Shore" barely had been conceived themselves).
Back then, in the 80s and 90s, rock singers were the celebrities of the cable network -- and among the many buff, long-haired and tight pants-wearing stars to be found, one of the biggest was Sebastian Bach, then the frontman of heavy metal band Skid Row. With his powerful voice and bad-boy persona, from 1989-91 he had a devoted following, with his image represented on many of the T-shirts and loose-leaf binders possessed by Long Island teens. And while those teens have since celebrated their 20th high school reunions, many still have quite the affinity for Bach -- both for his work and his look.
If you are one of those who would look forward to one more night of screaming in joy while the performer tackles a set of Skid Row hits, make sure to be at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert Hall in Wantagh on May 13 as Sebastian Bach takes the stage.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for an 18-and-over crowd. Tickets cost $15.
