The former Skid Row singer has asked fans to pray for the musician, who is being treated by doctors in Gainesville, Florida.
In a post on his Facebook.com page, Bach writes, "Everybody, please say a prayer. My friend and live drummer for years... Mark 'Bam Bam' MCConnell is fighting for his life right now in hospital in Gainesville, Florida. Miracles can happen, though, so everyone have Bam Bam in your hearts and prayers please. He is an amazing drummer and lifelong friend. We love you, Bam Bam. You can kick this in the a** just like you play your drums!! Fight hard, buddy. We all wanna rock with you. We love ya, dude."
