Bach's home ravaged by Hurricane Irene

  • Rocker Sebastian Bach has told of his devastation after his New Jersey home was destroyed by Hurricane Irene.

    The former Skid Row singer is planning to move to Los Angeles after a savage storm ripped through the east coast of America, causing a reservoir opposite his house to overflow and send a bridge crashing into his beloved property.

    Bach has been left feeling "numb" after losing personal items including master tapes, videos and other rock memorabilia, and he's not been allowed to enter the property to investigate the destruction due to fears of electrocution.

    In a message on his Facebook.com page he writes, "I am numb, in shock and devastated to report that my home of 21 years, my house featured on MTV 'Cribs', has been destroyed, condemned and deemed uninhabitable due to the extreme flooding courtesy of Hurricane Irene...

    "Original SKID ROW and KISS fans, I have bad news for you. Gone are irreplaceable items, such as my KISS Gargoyles from the 1979 tour. KISS pinball machine. SKID ROW master tapes, video and audio... We will salvage what we can, of course. But how I wish there was a reason to do a box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit. Nobody cared. Now it's too late. Don't know what you got till it's gone, indeed."

    But Bach is remaining philosophical about the tragedy, insisting the destruction of the house will force him to move on from his divorce, because he couldn't face selling the marital home.

    He adds, "This has really taught me that the best things in life are indeed 'free.' What makes me happy is that my children and ex-wife are safe. My dad's art is unharmed. No one got hurt."
