Profile This New Jersey band takes the best of what New Jersey Natives Bon Jovi and Skid Row were doing once upon a time.One of the finest hair metal indies ever and it’s amazing this band never hit it big. Kidd Skruff started as a side project for then Lead Singer/Guitarist Jimmy Forest who was performing with the popular New Jersey band “Push” in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The band play aggressive hard rock in parts with tunes need to played loud like the powerful opening “It’s All Right” and “Shooting Star”, while the cover version of “Honky Tonk Woman” from The Rolling Stones is also good.

By this time the Seattle “Grunge” scene had totally taken over and just as quick as it rose to the top, the new sound of Rock and Roll buried the successful 80’s and 90’s commercial Metal scene. The days of long hair, make up, glitter, over indulgence and unrestricted partying was over. The small record company that had recorded Kidd Skruff’s one and only album had gone bankrupt. The original recording was sold only on cassette, had a short release and sold only a few thousand copies.
