Steel Panther's debut album, 'Feel The Steel', was released to critical acclaim in 2009 and has surely earned Michael Starr, Satchel, Lexxi Foxx and Stix Zadinia a place in mythical musical masterpiece history! The album has sold over 45,000 copies in the UK alone to date!

The four member band, known for their outrageous stage presence and gargantuan guitar riffs have been entertaining fans and scores of rock and entertainment VIPs with their raucous antics via LA's longest running Heavy Metal show on the Sunset Strip for nearly a decade (now running at the infamous House of Blues every Monday night). The band also holds residencies at the Green Valley Resort and Casino and the House Of Blues Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday.

The group's new album promises to exude the same Steel Panther bravado and irreverent vitality that has compelled a stable of revered artists join them on stage through the years, including Sebastian Bach, Gene Simmons of Kiss, Dave Navarro, Vince Neil and Tommy Lee of Motley Crue, Perry Farrell, Pink and even all the members of Green Day! Also Tom Morrello of Rage Against The Machine, Corey Taylor of Slipnot and Stone Sour, Scott Ian of Anthrax and The Damned Things, Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme, Cee-Lo Green and Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame!

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
