Sebastian Bach lost his New Jersey home due to flooding brought about by Hurricane Irene, according to reports by several international news sites on Tuesday, August 30, 2011.

The rock star’s house was moved from its foundation due to an overflowing reservoir. He started to recover some of his prized memorabilia inside the house since Monday evening.

Bach, whose real name is Sebastian Bierk, rose to fame in the 1980s with the Skid Row, a hard metal and rock group. He was on a solo tour when the incident happened. His former wife and three children were unhurt.

Bach, known for his long, blond hair and strong, raspy vocals, grew up in Canada and now plans to move to Los Angeles.

During an interview with New Jersey native Eddie Trunk’s radio show on Sirius XM heavy metal channel The Boneyard, Bach said that “I live right across from a reservoir and I’ve been there for 22 years and I’ve never had a drop of water in my basement. And now my basement is completely filled to the top of the ceiling with water. I’ve lost so much KISS stuff and Skid Row stuff. It’s mind-blowing how much is gone. I’ve just spent all day packing up my stuff that still exists into a truck and right at this very moment I’m driving to a storage unit with my son and my friends. The house is condemned.

Among the items destroyed in Bach’s house include KISS’ signed posters and other memorabilia by the band, including 1970S pinball machine, sleeping bag, and master tapes of material recorded with Skid Row.
