(Rock News Desk) The musician who played with Phil Lynott and Gary Moore in Irish 1960s band Skid Row has explained his frustration over the US outfit once fronted by Sebastian Bach taking his name. And he says long-standing stories about Moore having been paid by Jon Bon Jovi for the are untrue.

Brush Shiels founded his blues-rock act in 1967, and gave Moore his first professional music role. They toured across the US and Canada and released three albums before splitting in 1972. "The late Gary Moore told me Jon Bon Jovi asked him if it was alright to use the name. Gary said it was nothing to do with him and he'd have to ring me. For some reason, Jon Bon Jovi never rang me."

He continues: "I have a new Skid Row album coming out and I want it sorted out once and for all. I'd expect somebody from Jon Bon Jovi's office to say, 'There's been a misunderstanding, something's happened.' I don't know what it is, but I must be entitled to use the name Skid Row." A lot more details and comments from Shiels here.
