In a new interview with Ultimate Guitar, Steel Panther’s Satchel talked about the feud with Motley Crue.
Here’s what Satchel said:
“You know what? Motley Crue had tour plans. And that sh*t got canceled, right? I mean, I’m a fan of Motley Crue.
“I think that Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx can act like total d*ckheads much of the time, but that’s also what comes with being a rock star sometimes.
“The guys want to act like d*ckheads and they do – and that’s cool, I still like the songs. But we can’t steal their fans any more than they can steal ours.
“People are gonna be fans of both bands and I’m always gonna love Motley Crue no matter how big of a d*ck Nikky Sixx is because I like how they sound.
“Our bands are not mutually exclusive and you don’t have to hate Steel Panther to love Motley Crue and vice versa. And you don’t have to hate Motley Crue to say Nikki Sixx is a d*ck as well. [Laughs]
“I still love Motley Crue even though I think Nikki Sixx is a d*ck – these things are not mutually exclusive. [Laughs]”
On the current status of their interaction with Motley Crue, Satchel said:
“I don’t have anything going on with those guys. I don’t really give a f*ck one way or the other.
“Like, if I saw them, I probably wouldn’t go hang out with them ’cause Nikki Sixx seems like he doesn’t like my band so I probably wouldn’t buy him a beer.
“But I don’t have anything against Motley Crue and I wish them the best in the future. But it seems like we annoy Nikki Sixx – and I’m fine with being annoying to Nikki Sixx ’cause I don’t really give a f*ck.
“But I don’t think we’re going to be on tour with Motley Crue any time soon, that’s what I reckon.”
