World Series Of Rock @ Alpine Valley 5/27/90

There was a five band line-up for this show:   Whitesnake, Skid Row, Great White, Bad English, & Hericane Alice.  BUT, really the only band that mattered was Skid Row.  That’s why I wanted to go.  And really that’s why my friend Rhonda got the tickets.  It turned out to be a good thing too after all the issues we encountered on the way to the arena.  First of all, I’m pretty sure we got a little lost on the way.  THEN, to make things worse, Rhonda’s car blew a tire.  OMG, that was the first time that ever happened to me.  It was scary.  Luckily two guys pulled over to help us change out to the spare.  Unfortunately, they weren’t true good samaritans because they asked us for money.  I wasn’t down for that, but I think Rhonda ended up giving them $20.  Whatever, I guess they did help us.  We finally ended up making it to the show to catch some of Bad English.  This was during their “When I See You Smile” era and Rhonda remembers hearing at least that song.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that we had to sit through Great White before we could see our Rock God, Sebastian Bach.  Neither one of us were into Great White at all.  So it was a long wait.  Once Skid Row finally hit the stage, we were happy girls.  We had fantastic seats and an amazing view of our guy.  I remember two things distinctly about this set.  First, Sebastian had a bottle of water that he shook out into the audience and got us wet.  And after a few songs and a lot of sweat, Sebastian flung his long, blonde hair and hit me with some of that sweat.  I was so excited.  I think that was the highlight of my day.  Skid Row really killed it.  And after they were done, so were we.  We didn’t even care to wait around for Whitesnake, so we left.  Not a bad way to get the 90′s started.
