Steel Panther members Satchel and Stix recently had a rather odd chat with Ultimate Guitar’s Toazted regarding Nickelback:
I really respect that you helped the guy from Nickelback. You’re apparently friends. I didn’t know he had friends.
Satchel: “Chaz, the singer form Nickelback… We call him Chaz because we’re tight. He’s not doing well. They just feel like their career is really starting to take a shit. They’re not selling the records like they used to.”
How can you still be friends?
Satchel: “Let’s put it this way: We’re not super tight friends but I think Chaz is trying to ride our coattails a little bit. Because he sees us, we’re like a shooting star. Just like a meteor, burning with fire and passion. We’re not gonna last forever, but you want to hop on that meteor and just ride it until it just fucking hits… you know… a mountain.”
You played at Avril Lavigne’s wedding. Turns out it wasn’t Avril Lavigne after all. She’s dead and Melissa, some impostor, took her place.
Satchel: “Holy shit, Avril Lavigne is dead?!”
Stix: “So you’re saying Deezer is breaking the news that Avril Lavigne is dead?”
Satchel: “Geezer Butler?”
Stix: “Wasn’t Chaz married to Avril?”
Satchel: “I wanted to fuck Avril too. Too bad she’s dead.”
Stix: “She got up on stage with us once before she died.”
Satchel: “It would probably be wrong for me to fuck her now at this point.”
Stix: “Wouldn’t be cool. Many people would frown upon it. Necrophilia is just not cool.”
