My Steel Panther experience.
Where do I even start?
Well after spending the day letting my hair colour set and a lazy breakfast with the housemates I realised the time and hurried to get ready for the night ahead.
I got to the Olson hotel where I met Peter, like me he contributes for various music websites.
Lucky he was nice and we got along great as we were about to face one of the biggest nights of our life.
We stepped into a black stretch hummer, popped open the champagne, popped the new Steel Panther DVD on the TVs and headed on a 50 minute ride around Melbourne city, picking up various Melbourne music media representatives along the way.
After a few bottles, 1 spilt drink and a bowl of BBQ shapes we stopped at MASSIVE WEINERS for a delicious hot dog to fill us up and set our bodies up for the big night ahead.
The next stop is where my adventure began, The Olson hotel where we went to the Penthouse Suite.
The door opens to a scene I’ve never seen before… strippers, platters of meat, candy and Steel Panther.
Us Melbourne media pack aren’t a shy bunch, we talk to rock stars on the daily, we deal with douche bags and ball breakers on the daily but for some reason this sight set us all in our steps and we huddled together in the door way.
The band approached up with the same confidence they present on stage, I got a dry hump from the singer Michael Starr, another got a smooch on the lips!
We then left our huddle, got our game face, a glass of champagne (thank’s Stix) and interrupted conversations with LA porn stars to talk to the current kings of hair metal.
I struck up a conversation with the least intimidating, most beautiful of the band Lexi Foxx who marvelled at my diamonte skull ring and hair, whilst I marvelled back at his hair and make up! Our conversation of make up and fashion soon lead to music which is when the porn stars lost interest and left us alone.
Then the mingling with the other members happens naturally and they are really fun and interesting guys… not to mention talented and hilarious!
With a soundtrack of ACDC and my glass never empty this is the perfect set up for a rock’n’roll show.
We all get our individual photos with the band as a keeps sake and they leave with their manager and porn stars for the show.
we are left, like hyenas to gorge in the left over rider and all taking in the whirlwind that just happened….”did I just see a competition between the singer and drummer oh who’s hand slap can leave her ass the reddest?”
We merrily load back into the hummer, kudos to the driver for helping us ladies gracefully enter the limo.
We rock up to the show and the 30 minute ATM line means I miss the openers THEART (note to self when going to Festival Hall don’t go without cash).
In our balcony seats, safe from the wigs and spandex we have a great seat for an epic rock show!
whilst I know it’s all in the name of a laugh, these guys are talented and even the severe metal heads in the crowd show their respect with the horns \m/
I rush off before the end of the set to DJ on the other side of town but what an unforgettable night!
