Rest In Peace
Former Skid Row singer Johnny Solinger has passed away at the age of 55. He previously revealed in May that he spent the past month in the hospital after being diagnosed with liver failure. In a statement posted on Facebook, he admitted that his “prognosis is not so good”. He also added that he didn’t have any health insurance so he launched a GoFundMe to help with his medical bills.
Skid Row confirmed the tragic news on their social media account.
“We are saddened to hear the news of our brother Johnny Solinger,” the band wrote. “Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans. Godspeed Singo. Say hello to Scrappy for us.”
Solinger served 15 years as Skid Row’s lead vocalist. He joined in 1999 following Sebastian Bach’s exit from the group. Solinger appeared on some of their most successful LPs including 2003’s “Thickskin” and 2006’s “Revolutions Per Minute”. He’s their longest-tenured singer before he left in 2015 to pursue a solo career.
“The past 15 years has been a great experience,” he said at the time, “and I have appreciated the opportunity to be the lead singer in one of the most prominent bands of the 1990s and share stages with the likes of Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Kiss, performing in front of millions throughout the world.”
