On the eve of his appearance on CMT's ''Gone Country 2,'' the rocker walks down memory lane and talks about friendship with Axl, ''Gilmore Girls,'' and playing Jesus
Next year marks the 20th anniversary of Skid Row's self-titled debut. How should we celebrate? ''Watch the video for '18 and Life.' That's exciting,'' the former frontman says. Then pretends to snore. ''F---in' cheese. I am concentrating on '08 not '80.'' Still, he'll share one memory: ''We were playing at some stadium in Mannheim [Germany] with Guns N' Roses and Nine Inch Nails [in '91], and I thought it would be appropriate to dive over the pit and into the throng of 72,000 Germans. I caught a little sweat or moisture on the lip of the stage, and my chin was the only part that made it over the barricade. BOOM. I cracked it open. I finished the set covered in blood. I get to the emergency room later, and they're, like, sewing me up in German. That was one not-so-fun night.''
