Tom Conway at South Bend Tribune recently caught up with Stx Zadinia, drummer for glam god pardody band STEEL PANTHER. An excerpt from the story is available below:
Steel Panther is so exaggerated in its sexism with such songs as 'Asian Hooker' and '17 Girls In A Row' that it comes off as funny, not offensive. At least, Zadinia says he hasn’t heard any complaints.
“If we sound misogynistic, it is out of love for the ladies,” he says. “They seem to love us often and with a lot of fervor.”
Most of the bands that Steel Panther makes fun of in its act are fans of the group. Tommy Lee of MÖTLEY CRÜE may be the sole exception, tweeting that the band is “weird.” In fact, Vivian Campbell, guitarist for DEF LEPPARD, will appear on Steel Panther’s as-yet-untitled third album.
“If you liked Feel the Steel and Balls Out, you will love this record,” Zadinia says of the next album, scheduled for a fall release. “It is more heavy metal songs that are hooky and great and fun and make you want to rock and make you want to have a good time and party. Also, there is a lot of riffage on this album that I think anybody who has ever questioned this band — ‘Oh, those guys wear spandex and it is 2000-whatever’ — these songs are going to put all of that to rest.”
