Former SEBASTIAN BACH Drummer ‘Fighting For His Life’

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has issued the following update:

“Everybody, please say a prayer. My friend and live drummer for years, also on ‘Bring ‘Em Bach Alive’, Mark Bam Bam McConnell is fighting for his life right now in hospital in Gainesville, Florida. Miracles can happen, though, so everyone have Bam Bam in your hearts and prayers please. He is an amazing drummer and lifelong friend. We love you, Bam Bam. You can kick this in the ass just like you play your drums!! Fight hard, buddy. We all wanna rock with you. We love ya, dude.”

In a 1999 interview, Bach stated about McConnell, “He is on fire. When we toured in ’98 with PANTERA, Vinnie Paul was like, ‘Man, how many fuckin’ pieces does your drummer have?’ And for Vinnie Paul to say that. . . And Mark has always been a powerhouse. I am the luckiest guy in the world because I have Anton Fig from David Letterman‘s band on all of the studio tracks for ‘Bring ‘Em Bach Alive’ and Mark on all of the live stuff, two of the greatest drummers in the world.”
