STEEL PANTHER's Rock And Roll Encounter With Sleepy AXL ROSE

STEEL PANTHER's Rock And Roll Encounter With Sleepy AXL ROSE

In a brand new interview with, vocalist Michael Starr of California glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER shared his favorite story from the road involving a sleepy Axl Rose.

Recalling when STEEL PENTHER opened for GUNS N' ROSES at the Forum in Los Angeles in December 2011, Starr said: "Axl closed off the whole left side of the arena of any noise for four hours while he took a nap.

"We had to go into a dressing room and no one could tune guitars or be on stage for four hours."

He continued: "That's heavy metal, and it's funny."

STEEL PANTHER is working on the follow-up to 2014's "All You Can Eat" album for a tentative October release.

"Live From Lexxi's Mom's Garage", STEEL PANTHER's first full-length film featuring a live ten-song acoustic concert interspersed with comedic vignettes showcasing the band's unmatched shenanigans and debauchery, was released on February 26 on CD and CD/DVD by Open E Records via Kobalt Label Services.
