In 1990, he formed the rock band SOLINGER in Dallas, recording 4 independent records -Solinger, Solinger II, Chain Link Fence and Solinger Live-and enjoying live performance and radio success throughout the Southwest.
In 1999 Skid Row members Dave "The Snake" Sabo, Rachel Bolan, and Scotti Hill hired Solinger to replace previous lead vocalist Sebastian Bach. In 2000, Skid Row landed a coveted opening slot on Kiss's "Farewell Tour."
