During a conversation with OD, Steel Panther guitarist Satchel and drummer Stix Zadinia have fired up the band’s ongoing feud with Motley Crue.
There’s been bad blood between the two groups for quite a while now, starting back in 2011 when Panther toured as an opening band for Def Leppard and the Crue.
If Steel Panther had the chance to do something similar to [Motley Crue’s] ‘The Dirt’ book then the movie…
Stix: “Well, I’m just gonna f*k*ng say it right here man – our book would put ‘The Dirt’ to shame.”
Satchel: “We could say that Stix, but that will just make those guys really mad. They’re actually really mad at us right now.”
Stix: “No, not all the band. Tommy [Lee] and Nikki [Sixx] are pissed at us right now.”
Satchel: “Everybody knows that we party way harder than those guys have ever done in the past and… look we’re not trying to brag but, honestly, we do get more p*ssy than Motley Crue, if you add it up by weight. Standards are a little lower, but we don’t care as much. Don’t get me wrong! We get lots of hot b*t*hes but we get ugly ones also; and the point is, we don’t leave any b*t*hes behind. We’ll just f*c* any b*t*h, anywhere at any time.”
Stix: “The wider the net, the more fish you catch but they’re not all gonna be tasty. [Laughs]”
But there very well could be a book or a movie about Steel Panther down the line. If you could get anyone to play your character, who would it be?
Stix: “Absolutely, dude! Who knows what’s gonna happen. But the question is indeed who would I get to play me? Well, I guess it would have to be… Hmmm, that’s a good one. Let me think for a second…”
Satchel: “Well, for me it’s obviously got to be Ben Stiller. Everybody says I look like Ben Stiller but I think really, I should just play myself.”
Stix: “No, dude, for this question, you have to pick an actor that would play your character.”
Satchel: “Yeah, but nobody is gonna play me better than me! Okay, okay, let me pick… Hmm, I would say, ahh…
Stix: “It could be anyone that doesn’t necessarily look like you but would be a good Satchel.”
Satchel: “Okay, then I would have to say, Al Pacino.”
Stix: “Niiiice! I would pick Patrick Swayze or Nicolas Cage or Val Kilmer.”
