Skid Row – Wasted Time (album: slave to the grind 1991)

This song is by Skid Row. During my Guns N’ Roses period, I used to listen to Skid Row as well. They were pretty cool. They have some awesome songs. Their Lead singer Sebastian Bach shouts very nicely and he is a pretty cool man or a woman, still not sure what he is...In 1996 the band members got rid of Sebastian and of course It hasn’t been the same without him!!!
I always thought this was a love song for someone who died from some kind of accident but apparently it is a song about Steven Adler’s drug abuse, Steven was Guns N’ Roses first Drummer that was replaced by the band back in 1990 because at some point he couldn’t function properly .For me it will always be a great love song...
Anyway this is one of my favourite songs.

The Bottle Incident:
In what is referred to as "The Bottle Incident" by fans of the band, Bach was hit with a bottle thrown onstage from the crowd at a concert in Springfield, Massachusetts, where Skid Row was opening for Aerosmith on December 27, 1989. Bach threw the bottle back, hitting a girl (not the thrower), so he jumped on the crowd to beat the person who can be seen on a tour video released by Skid Row called Oh Say Can You Scream in 1990. (Wikipedia – Skid Row)

What’s this song about?
The song was released in 1991 and written by bandmates Sebastian Bach, Rachel Bolan and Dave "the Snake" Sabo. It was also the band's last real hit on the U.S. charts. Lead singer Sebastian Bach said the song was written about Steven Adler, the original drummer of hard rock band Guns N' Roses. (Wikipedia – wasted time)
