Sebastian Bach’s home ‘destroyed’ by Hurricane Irene

Sebastian Bach’s New Jersey home was destroyed by Hurricane Irene, the rocker said Sunday on Facebook.

“I am numb, in shock, & devastated to report that my home of 21 years ... has been destroyed, condemned, & deemed uninhabitable due to the extreme flooding,” the former Skid Row frontman wrote.

Pieces of Kiss memorabilia, including a pinball machine, and one-of-a-kind Skid Row items were lost in the storm that hit the East Coast over the weekend. “There is one less KISS Sleeping Bag on the planet earth now :( ,” Bach lamented on Twitter.

“This has really taught me that the best things in life are indeed ‘free.’ What makes me happy is that my children & ex wife are safe,” Bach said. “My dads (sic) art is unharmed. No one got hurt. My scrapbooks of memories of my life are dry & safe.”

Bach, who filed for divorce in December, said he sees the flood as a push from God to move forward: “Hello, Los Angeles. Hello, New Life. Here I Am. It's time for a new start. Like I have a choice.”
