SKID ROW AND SINGER TONY HARNELL PART WAYS, NO EXPLANATION GIVEN
Skid Row have parted ways with vocalist Tony Harnell.
The former TNT frontman had only joined the band in April, after they dismissed Johnny Solinger following a 14-year stint with the band.
Harnell says in a tweet, “I’m sorry to inform everyone that I’m no longer the lead singer for Skid Row. I thank the fans for their love and support!”
He hasn’t provided any further information. At the time of this posting, the band have yet to comment.

I hear guns and roses is looking for an opening act ??
I don’t think the problem will be if Sebastian re-joins the band temporarily, because it will make lots of $ for all, and put them back in the mainstream (or at least out of nightclubs). The questions is, what do they do after that, when the reunion tour is over. If they are ok with then hiring yet another singer, and going back to the clubs, that’s perfectly fine. If they choose to, they can do the reunion tour with an agreed upon end date, shake hands, be adults and move on with their lives. (Believe me. I know it’s easier said than done in the rock world. I just finished watching the Deep Purple “Behind the music” episode)
It looks like Baz won’t be rejoining the band, according to the statement they just released: https://eddietrunk.com/skid-row-release-a-statement-regarding-singer-tony-harnell-leaving-the-band-says-we-found-out-about-his-decision-the-same-way-all-of-you-did-via-his-post-on-social-media/
They seem pretty adamant about not doing a reunion. Hopefully they will take their time and get the right guy moving forward.
That was fast lol
