MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel joined Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER on stage on September 28 at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada to perform a cover version of OZZY OSBOURNE‘s “Crazy Train” and PANTHER‘s own “Tomorrow Night”. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
STEEL PANTHER‘s first-ever DVD, “British Invasion”, sold 3,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Music Videos chart. Recorded with 16 cameras in pristine HD over a two-year period, the disc chronicles STEEL PANTHER‘s legendary live show that the band has come to be known for. Beginning in March 2010 at the band’s sold-out concert at Brixton Academy in London during their highly successful “Feel The Steel” tour, the DVD feaures some of the group’s most memorable hits, including “Asian Hooker”, “Community Property”, “The Shocker” and “Stripper Girl”, in a way never seen before. Included in the package is a laugh-out-loud documentary that follows the band backstage and on their tour that is not to be missed. The deluxe box set includes two DVDs — one with the full show and one with the documentary — deleted scenes and five songs from Download Festival 2012. The packaging also includes a 16-page color book.
