Johnny Solinger, Former Skid Row Singer, Dead At 55 After Liver Failure

 Former Skid Row singer Johnny Solinger has died a month after revealing he was suffering from liver failure. He was 55.


According to USA Today, Solinger’s wife, actress Paula Marcenaro Solinger, confirmed the musician’s death. “He passed yesterday while I was holding his hand.”

Skid Row shared the news Saturday night on social media, posting a photo of Solinger with his birth and death dates.

Solinger asked fans to “send me all the healing vibes you can” and donations to help with his medical bills. A GoFundMe page organized by his friend Brian Lawrence has raised $16,000 toward a $100,000 goal.

Solinger was the hard rock band’s longest-running vocalist (1999 to 2015), replacing Sebastian Bach, who left the group in 1996.

Solinger fronted the group when it opened for Kiss’ Farewell Tour in 2000 and embarked on a solo career after parting ways with the group. He sang on two of the group’s albums, 2003’s “Thickskin” and 2006’s “Revolutions Per Minute.”
