Steel Panther is a parody act, albeit one signed to a major label [Republic]. The band isn't new – the act started as Danger Kitty, then Metal Shop, later became Metal Skool and finally Steel Panther. Parody or not, the musicians in Steel Panther are top notch and have real glam street cred. Singer Michael Starr was in LA Guns
for awhile [under his real name Ralph Saenz] and guitarist Satchel [Russ Parrish] worked with both Jeff Pilson [Dokken
] and Rob Halford
. The group walks around in spandex, uses hairspray on stage, make inappropriate jokes – and rakes in the big bucks while doing so. Steel Panther is currently working on a new album.
'Death to All But Metal'
