Erik Grönwall releases his version of Skid Row’s classic track “18 And Life”
Former H.E.A.T frontman Erik Grönwall continues to release videos of himself singing cover songs. After releasing his very well received cover of Black Sabbath‘s “Headless Cross”, Grönwall has unveiled his cover of Skid Row‘s classic track “18 And Life.” Grönwall‘s former H.E.A.T bandmate Jona Tee handles all of the instruments and the production for the song.
The YouTube caption for Grönwall‘s video indicates:
“This song was basically the starting point of my professional career as an artist. I performed this song during my Swedish Idol audition back in 2009. 12 years later it’s time to give this bad boy a try again. Here’s my version of the Skid Row song 18 and life.
This version of 18 and Life will be available on all streaming platforms September 3rd. Make sure you pre-save on Spotify here: https://ffm.to/18andlife “
