In the current issue (#78) of the Black Velvet Magazine you can find an Interview with me about Fanthers.com – if you want to know why and when I decided to start my fansite, how long it takes to keep this site updated, if the band knows about it and much more: Check it out! You can buy this magazine and some older ones with Steel Panther Interviews, photos and other stuff on the official Black Velvet homepage.
If you ask me what I’m thinking about this article I would say: I’m f*cking proud to be featured in such a great rock magazine :)
Thanks a lot to some great people who have made this possible :)
Look who said “Hi” from the Studio – Michael Starr has sent exclusive greetings to his Fanthers:
The studio has been a fucking blast. Couple days ago we recorded vocals for a song called “Party Like its the end of the World“. I’m kicking ass in the studio with the help of Satchel, Stix and Lexxi. We don’t have a title yet for the record. We have hundreds of ideas but nothing has stuck yet.
Our producer Jay has been amazing when he’s awake. He drinks a lot and really likes to nap. When he is awake we stop partying and record. Our plans to tour internationally are still being worked out as I write this update.
As soon as we can announce dates, you can bet your sweet vagina I’m gonna tweet something.
We are rehearsing for our upcoming USA tour in between recording vocals as well.
Stay tuned for more updates and now watch the video from the Studio!

Thanks to the band and the bitchin’ people who enabled this video
I have a new feature for fanthers who like their smartphone or tablet: With Google Currents you can subscribe to the latest news and videos of Steel Panther Fans Germany, tuned for your tablet and smartphone. I’ve put the feeds of this site, youtube, twitter and tumblr into it. If you use Google Currents or if you intend to do that, check out my issue and be up to date :)
A few days ago I wrote an article on tumblr because some Fanthers believe, that they could easily take my pics without adding my name. I’m glad you like my pics, but that’s fucking annoying, because I shoot these pics without any accreditation and with a small compact camera. No DSLR, because without accreditation you can’t take it in the concert hall. I’m not getting paid for taking these photos, I pay my tickets and I spend my time with sorting, editing and uploading the bunch of pics – why the hell is it so difficult to support my stuff when you like it, huh?! We should support each other. More
it’s the 1st of January 2013. I hope you have partied hard on new years eve with your friends, parents, boyfriends, husbands or perhaps the guys of Steel Panther. I had my first new years eve with the Fanthers Community and I must say: It was very cool to receive a lot of positive messages with wishes for the new year. I wanna say “Thank you” to all of you for your support! 2012 was a special year for me, because I lost my Steel Panther virginity at the show in Frankfurt, 03-18-2012 and I launched fanthers.de to share the newest Panther stuff and my photos with you. Now there’s a small community @ Facebook and that makes me very happy. Feel free to join :)
Some of you I’ve met at different shows, I don’t need to mention any names – you know who you are. Thank you for rockin’ with me! I visited six shows last year and every single concert was different. I hope to see you again soon!
A big “Thank you” also goes to Steel Panther. Thank you to Michael, Satchel, Stix and Lexxi for making my life so bitchin’, thank you for your songs which make me smile when I’m down and thank you, that you are so nice to your fans. You are awesome! You have really made my life a little easier. 2013 will definitely be a Panther year with a new album and hopefully some shows in Europe. I love you guys! :-)
Now I stop being so sentimental and say: Party hard, give the girl you love a shocker (she will appreciate it), rock your socks off and have a bitchin’ new year 2013. See ya on the road!
Some days ago I decided to create a new background for fanthers.de. I found some bitchin’ golden glitter wrapping paper, I took my camera and the new background was finished. But the old wordpress theme looked boring and I tried to find a new one which fits perfectly with the old articles. I choosed a pretty cool theme, Carsten helped me to install the whole stuff and there it is: The new Steel Panther Fans Germany website :) I hope you enjoy it! By the way, there is a new twitter box in the sidebar, where you can find the latest tweets from this site and the Steel Panther guys :)
