Frontman Michael Starr commented on the ongoing feud saying
“I don’t know, man. It’s, like, I try to be friends with those guys, you know? I’ll admit, we were on tour with Motley Crue back in 2011, and it was like a one-week tour and I accidentally, like…
“On the first night, we’re on stage, we’re opening up for Motley Crue and Def Leppard, and it was packed, and I see Tommy Lee, he’s in the front row, he’s got Steel Panther wristband on, he’s got Steel Panther on his shirt, he’s a huge fan, banging his head, he knows all the words to ‘Death to All But Metal’ and stuff…
“And I was, like, ‘Tommy, my boy!’, I throw him a pick and it hit him in the eye. I went, ‘Oh, no!’
“We finish our set, and we went backstage, and I was seeing this hot little woman, and Tommy Lee finishes his set, and he comes backstage, and he walks in, he sees me messing around with this girl…
“Turns out it was his girlfriend.
“He was so upset. He ran away, started crying. I’m, like, ‘Tommy, wait, no!’ wiping my member off and falling into the hall… I’m, like, ‘Holy smokes, dude!’
“And I lost him, looking for him for like a half-hour, Tommy was nowhere to be found. And I finally find him, he’s hiding underneath his drum set, like, the roller-coaster drum set, and he’s sobbing.
“I’m, like, ‘Tommy, come here.’ And he finally crawled out and it took him about a week to get over that. Finally, at the end of the week, he was in the front row again, and he forgave me.
“And then he came backstage that night, but then Michael was going at it with his girlfriend, and we’ve been at odds ever since.
“You know, she was his girlfriend, though, and you saw her anyway… I didn’t even know, that’s what’s messed up, and that’s why he hates your guts. God, I would hate you too if that was my girl.”
