Steel Panther concert

Tonight I went to the Steel Panther concert in Brussels.  It’s the first time I’ve seen them live, although I’ve watched plenty of YouTube videos so I knew what to expect.  They certainly know how to put on a show – there was great music, plenty of laughs and a few girls showing their boobs!  Not for the faint-hearted, but great fun and they got a huge reaction from the audience.

The stars of the show are the singer, Michael Starr, and the guitarist, Satchel.  Both of them are at the top of the game and can give any of the better known rock singers or guitarists a run for their money.  Satchel is a brilliant guitarist, and he did a great solo section in the middle of the show, playing drums and guitar simultaneously for part of it.

As well as this year’s acoustic album, Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage, they are set to release their next album in February 2017.

Here’s a video of one of their best known songs, Community Property.  They do tend to be a bit rude, so don’t watch it if you’re likely to be offended.  This version is actually slightly cleaned up!

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
