Celebrities and volunteers joined together in giving something back to this community of the homeless, among the largest in the US, who were fed a fully-prepared meal and had the opportunity to be given foot washing and hygiene kits. Foot washing, a symbolic ritual of humbleness and respect derived from Jesus Christ's washing of his disciples feet at the Last Supper, was offered by the Los Angeles Health Center and  volunteers.

    Ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach and his New Jersey home were the victims of Hurricane Irene. Apparently, a reservoir opposite his home overflowed and a bridge came crashing into the singer's property, taking it out.

    Bach lost priceless personal items including master tapes, videos and other rock memorabilia, and he's not permitted enter the property survey the damage due to the threat and danger of electrocution! Ouch. What a shame.

    Bach posted a Facebook message about the destruction: "I am numb, in shock and devastated to report that my home of 21 years, my house featured on MTV Cribs, has been destroyed, condemned and deemed uninhabitable due to the extreme flooding courtesy of Hurricane Irene…"

    He also revealed: "Original SKID ROW and KISS fans, I have bad news for you. Gone are irreplaceable items, such as my KISS Gargoyles from the 1979 tour. KISS pinball machine. SKID ROW master tapes, video and audio… We will salvage what we can, of course. But how I wish there was a reason to do a box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit. Nobody cared. Now it's too late. Don't know what you got till it's gone, indeed."

    Bach did say that the home being destroyed is forcing him to move on from his divorce, because he didn't want to sell the home he shared with his ex-wife in the first place.

    He adds, "This has really taught me that the best things in life are indeed 'free.' What makes me happy is that my children and ex-wife are safe. My dad's art is unharmed. No one got hurt."

    What a shame! It's hard to lose a home like that. It's memories, possessions and lots of sentimental value.
