Video: STEEL PANTHER's MICHAEL STARR, THE WINERY DOGS' BILLY SHEEHAN Perform VAN HALEN's 'Atomic Punk'

MR. BIG and THE WINERY DOGS bassist Billy Sheehan and STEEL PANTHER singer Michael Starr (real name Ralph Saenz; ex-L.A. GUNS) performed cover versions of the VAN HALEN classic "Atomic Punk" and TALAS's "Shy Boy" last night (Wednesday, July 15) at Lucky Strike in Hollywood, California. The duo was accompanied during the performance — which was part of the weekly "Ultimate Jam Night" at the venue — by guitarist Stephen Chesney and drummer Matt Starr (ACE FREHLEY, MR. BIG). Check out video footage below.

STEEL PANTHER's third album, "All You Can Eat", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 24 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 1, 2014 via Open E/KLS.

Billy Sheehan rose to cult hero status in the '80s with his Buffalo-based band TALAS, and he was recruited by David Lee Roth to record two platinum-selling albums, "Eat 'Em & Smile" and "Skyscraper". He then launched the band MR. BIG in 1989 with guitarist Paul Gilbert and singer Eric Martin.
