I spent nearly two full days simply clicking my way through Steel Panther history. Ns wasn’t really trying to find anything to start with, but as I began finding stuff, one amazing fact lead to another and also it became an obsession…!

I mentioned to my girlfriend Mari that many human being have uncovered my blog by trying to find terms favor “Lexxi without wig” or “Steel panther no wigs” or “Does Satchel stay a wig?“.

You are watching: Steel panther without wigs (must see)

I can’t believe they haven’t already found all this stuff! her only an answer was: “Most people don’t have the patience because that that sort of thing. It’s the reporter in you the comes out“. Maybe.I truly acquire a absent from this stuff. Who room these guys?

It’s like Kiss back in the work – everybody want to know what castle looked like before 1983. The mystery would drive civilization crazy.Well, due to the fact that the stole Panther-guys room basically always in character throughout their interviews, friend won’t get anything the end of them. Therefore if you desire to know what lies behind the wigs, the spandex and the jokes, you’ve gained to discover out because that yourself.

I’ve visited some quite godforsaken, forgotten places on the net Graveyard today.MySpace confirmed to be an underrated museum of exciting stuff. There were old blog from 2004 that invited fans of The Thornbirds (also named The Ducks) to gigs for free or to five or ten bucks in ~ the door. Tiny did castle know, I’m sure, the tickets to their future band stole Panther would certainly go for 40 bucks a piece in the UK eight years later.


There were every these old home-made homepages that people used come create prior to there was any social media the end there – even before the job of MySpace or Facebook. It’s to be an exciting journey today! i still don’t have ALL the piece of the puzzle, numerous things i still don’t get. Favor whether or no there is an affinity in between the band’s manager Glen Parrish and Russ Parrish (aka Satchel).

They certain look a lot of alike if you compare photos – it’s the same jawline. Simply speculating – ns don’t know, however I’m certain there are human being out there who carry out know. I just haven’t stumbled ~ above anything however that would confirm it, so I’ll just save the for another rainy day. :-)

I started at Twitter, clicked ~ above an amazing name, which took me to a personal webpage, which took me to a personal Facebook-account – which take it me to….everywhere…!Next point I know, I’m looking in ~ family- and vacation photos and also old band-videos, photos, MySpace stories and blogs and old webpages and also cool stuff on YouTube!

So….. This is not even fifty percent of it, but who knows, possibly there will be a “Part two” in the future. For now, if you ever before wondered what stole Panther looks like “incognito” – right here you go!Still very cool men -wigs or no wigs!
