According to Blabbermouth.net, former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach "lost" his microphone while spinning it around in the air during the opening song of his band's performance on June 22 at this year's Gods Of Metal festival in Milan, Italy. Bach and his band briefly stopped the show while his microphone was getting fixed and restarted the set a few minutes later. You can now watch fan-filmed video footage of both takes of the "Slave To The Grind" track below.

Bach earlier in the month released a video for the song "I'm Alive". The clip is one of three videos (alongside "Kicking & Screaming" and "TunnelVision") that the singer filmed on June 28, 2011 in Hollywood, California with director Devin DeHaven of Fortress Entertainment (Papa Roach, Whitesnake, Method Man, Talib Kweli).

"I'm Alive" comes off Bach's new album, "Kicking & Screaming", which sold 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The singer's previous CD, "Angel Down", opened with 6,400 units back in November 2007 to debut at No. 190.

    He should make a superband together with Axl Rose and Courtney Love. It should be called Bach Love Rose.

    I'm not in a band, a music professional, a concert organizer or your managers..but shouldn't they have a back-up plan incase they have "technical difficulties"? I mean this issue should have been delt with within 10-15 seconds. Not have the singer walk around the stage lost, while the band keeps playing (which was kind funny) until Bach decides to stop the show. Like some already mentioned this was very unprofessional.

    why did he get all butt-hurt? microphones are not made to withstand such abuse, it's his fault the mic broke.. and why didnt they just plug in another mic? quite the drama queen
