Sebastian Bach - Forever Wild - 2004 - Eagle Vision
Anyway, on this DVD we get a good sampling of the VH1 segments and while I felt much of them were wasted time there was some that left me gasping for air in laughter. Bach does some stuff with Motley Crue Singer Vince Neil and after losing a bet with him has to stand in an Alligator pool. I am not kidding you as he is standing knees deep in a pond full of Alligators and the handlers keep telling him don’t move suddenly or anything. His expressions alone are priceless. There is also an amusing segment with Ted Nugent but how could the Nuge make any segment bad. Nugent alone is one of the most interesting people in Music. To me those were the best of the included TV segments.
The concert footage was pretty cool to see, as Bach really is an excellent front man. He is so totally into what he does and the audience energy seems to fuel him track after track. Joining Sebastian in the group for the video concert portion is Ritchie Scarlet (guitar), Mark McConnell (Drums), and Larry Fisher (bass). This section was filmed at The Whisky in Hollywood California in 2003. There is a lot of the Skid Row tunes you want to hear in the set and overall its fun to watch. They had all of my favorites by Skid Row so I was ok on the concert content. I watched the whole piece straight thru and did not see if there was a way to only watch the concert or the other program. I think the viewer is stuck with flipping past things that don’t interest them. You can see by listing of the tracks on it, that concert pieces follow segments of the VH1 show and vice versa.
