Sebastian Bach, the former frontman of glam metalers Skid Row, has lost his home due to damage caused by Hurricane Irene.

The rocker, who left the band in 1996 and now performs solo, posted a picture of his flooded home on Facebook and also wrote:

I am numb, in shock, & devastated to report that my home of 21 years… has been destroyed, condemned, & deemed uninhabitable.

The damage to his New Jersey residence was caused when his house was knocked from its foundations after a local reservoir flooded, causing a bridge near his home to break and end up in his garage.

The singer – who releases his fourth solo album ‘Kicking & Screaming’ on September 23 - lost a host of Skid Row memorabilia in his flooded basement, including Skid Row master tapes, as well as a Kiss pinball machine, reports People.

The singer, who no longer lives in the property, explained that he’s been holding onto the home since filing for divorce from his wife in December of last year. He added: "What makes me happy is that my children & ex wife are safe… No one got hurt."
