Adam Carolla interviews Steel Panther
Adam introduces Steel Panther band members Michael Starr, Satchel, Lexxi Foxxx, and Stix Zadinia. They all have a laugh over names with double entendres, and Adam says his new favorite is Harry Seward. He actually had someone page that name at the airport. Adam remembers seeing the band when they were known as Atomic Punks, a Van Halen tribute band.
In fact, the band broke up at one point and eventually reformed as Steel Panther. The reason for the split? One of the members broke one of the two main band rules: no sleeping with the other guy's girlfriends (the other rule? No pooping on the tour bus.). Now reformed as Steel Panther, their latest record is called Feel the Steel. Some of their influences include Cinderella, Motley Crue, Ratt, and Van Halen. Adam points out that if you're in a tribute band, you have to technically be better than the original band because you're not afforded the same leeway that they are.
