"Ich habe beschlossen, SKID ROW zu verlassen, um meine Solo-Karriere zu verfolgen. Die letzten 15 Jahre waren eine tolle Erfahrung für mich und ich war jeden Tag dankbar für die Möglichkeit, in einer der bekanntesten Bands der 90er zu singen und die Bühne mit Gruppen wie AEROSMITH, BON JOVI oder KISS zu teilen und vor Millionenpublikum in aller Welt aufzutreten. Ich wünsche SKID ROW für die Zukunft nur das Beste!"
Allerdings haben SKID ROW nicht lange mit der Bekanntgabe des Nachfolgers auf sich warten lassen: SKID ROW haben niemand geringeren als Tony Harnell (ex-TNT) als ihren neuen Frontmann verpflichtet.
Dave "Snake" Sabo :
"[SKID ROW bassist 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.'"
Bassist Rachel Bolan:
"Like Snake said, we've been friends with Tony for a long time. And one year, a while ago, we had dinner together. At Christmas, I went up to see the folks in New Jersey, and I went to New York. And Tony and a few other friends, we all had dinner, and we just started talking. And we just... [It was] mutual admiration society. And then, when it came into our mind that we were gonna make a switch, we spoke about Tony, because he just seemed like such a natural fit. And we got in touch with him. He was way into it, [and] we were way into it. We got together [and] we played some songs. It sounded great. We just did some recording together, and it's just... It's, like, wow! This is swesome. It just sounds so natural of a fit. And we're happy. We're very happy. We're happy to have him onboard."
