In a recent interview with Ultimate Guitar, Steel Panther guitarist Satchel revealed his thoughts about Mötley Crüe stars Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee: ‘Total dickheads much of the time.’
Steel Panther’s Satchel joined an interview for Ultimate Guitar and he talked about the ongoing feud between them and Mötley Crüe. This time he targetted the members Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee and directly their personalities.
As you might remember, the feud between the two bands started when Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx stated he didn’t like the glam-metal parody schtick of Steel Panther. Later, it continued with Steel Panther frontman Michael Starr giving Vince Neil‘s name in an interview when he was asked which musician he would bring back from the dead implying Vince has lost his talent.
During the interview, Satchel was asked about their upcoming live-stream named ‘Concert to Save the World‘ and whether they were planning to steal the audience from Motley Crüe.
Here’s how Satchel answered the question:
“You know what? Motley Crue had tour plans. And that shit got canceled, right? I mean, I’m a fan of Motley Crue.”
Then he continued his feelings about Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee:
“I think that Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx can act like total dickheads much of the time, but that’s also what comes with being a rock star sometimes.
The guys want to act like dickheads and they do – and that’s cool, I still like the songs. But we can’t steal their fans any more than they can steal ours.”
Furthermore, Satchel explained the reason why they wouldn’t think of stealing audience from Mötley Crüe:
“People are gonna be fans of both bands and I’m always gonna love Motley Crue no matter how big of a dick Nikky Sixx is because I like how they sound.
“ur bands are not mutually exclusive and you don’t have to hate Steel Panther to love Motley Crue and vice versa. And you don’t have to hate Motley Crue to say Nikki Sixx is a dick as well.
I still love Motley Crue even though I think Nikki Sixx is a dick – these things are not mutually exclusive.”
