During a conversation with Little Punk People, Steel Panther vocalist Michael Starr talked about the band’s ongoing feud with Motley Crue.
Michael now commented when asked about the whole thing:
“Hopefully, that thing was just like a blip in the, you know, heavy-metal news for now. I think if we were to run into each other, I myself would totally be, ‘What’s up, dude?’
“That’s the last thing I wanna do, is have a band that influenced my musical taste and direction be mad at me. But sometimes there’s really nothing you can do about that kind of stuff. You just have to live with it.”
Starr also said:
“People were saying, ‘What are you doing? Why are you guys arguing?’. And I was like, ‘Yeah, you’re right. Why are we arguing?’ It’s silly. There’s no reason to do that, and it’s over social media.’
“And I know if we were at a festival or in the same room, I’m not gonna ignore the guy. I’m a fan. I’m gonna go up and say hi. And if he wants to not be my friend, then that’s one thing, but I would totally walk up to him and say hi.”
