Meet Steel Panther. Their claims to fame include launching the careers of many a band (From Janes Addiction to Motley Crue), tagging your Mom, and supreme rulers of all things Metal. Owning the 80s, Steel Panther was crowned king of The Sunset Strip and headed towards super-stardom in spandex, then …they disappeared. While the history is a bit fuzzy, two decades later the band is back and ready to pick up right where they left off….in your Mom’s pants.
The band (Michael Starr on vocals, Satchel on guitar, Lexxi Foxxx on bass and Stix Zadinia on drums) have poised themselves for their big comeback with their debut album on Universal Republic Records “Feel the Steel”. With the first single “Community Property” hand delivering STDs from the east coast to the west the band just returned from a trip over the pond to perform at the legendary Download Festival.
At a stop in Boston for a private show for rock station WAAF, the band took some time to sit down with us and talk shop, Metal Shop that is. So if you were wondering who in the band wore Depends or who was uncircumcised, never fear, we’ve covered it all for you…
