But does it really matter? There have been bands with shared names before and nobody's made a fuss about it... And it's not like "Skid Row" is such an original, one-of-a-kind name.

Meh, but that's not how the law/copyrights work.

Gee, I wonder why go after Jon instead of Skid Row? And why now? 23 years later.

What a wanker.

Someone after a bit of publicity and possibly skint. Makes no sense otherwise- I mean who really cares? He should have brought it up at the time.

Claims he never heard of Skid Row, the American band.

Whatever. Probably owes his bookie money and is desperate for cash.

Agreed. If his "bands name" was selling that many records so long ago there's no way he wasn't told about it.

Publicity. Skid Row wouldn't give him press, the name Jon would.

Dude needs to get over himself. Reminds of the time the band Arrested Development tried to sue the series Arrested Development for stealing their name or some such nonsense. Shear absurdity.

Fair enough if he has issue with it. Probably should have raised it as a concern in about '89 though...
