The Burden of Being Wonderful

WHAT IS THE PART OF NOSTALGIA IN THE BAND STEEL PANTHER ?
Lexxi : What’s nostalgia ?
Michael Starr : Nostalgia is like what do we think about the oldest stuff ?
Lexxi : OK.
Michael Starr : You know like Steel Panther, we’re based well our roots are formally planted in the eighties. We love metal from the eighties. (02 :30) And now, look at us now, you think they just be nostalgic. We’re leavin’ in the eighties.
Lexxi : Do you help with that thing Michael, ho now you have developped I’m sur what it is.
Michael Starr : We like brand new but old.
Lexxi : Please say our age, because we’re old.
Michael Starr : Yeah.
Lexxi : What you mean ever world ?
Michael Starr : We’re old, but the stuff that we do is new, but it’s based from old. (02’59)

DO YOU THINK THERE’S NOSTALGIA IN THE WAY YOU PLAY THAT HEAVY METAL ?
Michael Starr : Our influences come from the eighties, so yeah, definitely, it definitely ends up being a part of our music and part of our sound. And I think what we’ve done is we take a sound from the eighties that we love so much, the heavy metal, and we put it in today’s music and mix it together. And that brings Steel Panther.

WE CAN ALSO TALK ABOUT YOUR LOOK, IT’S BEEN AWHILE SINCE WE HAD NOT SEEN SUCH A GETUP…
Michael Starr : You mean good looking pretty bands?

HAIR METAL IT IS CALLED IN FRANCE ?
Michael Starr : Yes we are, butt metal in some places, glam rock, there’s a lot of different titles for. We just like to call it heavy metal. But you know, whatever everybody call us, unless you call us faggots.
Lexxi : Yeah yeah yeah, hey you cock suckers ! Or, hey you fuckin assholes ! I don’t like that. But sometimes you can’t help us because we look different you know. So you’re gonna get that, you’re gonna get those mean people…
Michael Starr : jealous people. Those guys knows a band they’re jealous because we’re so, he’s beautiful. I’m a really good looking guy. And you see us on stage it’s intimidating, it’s scary for other bands…
Lexxi : We’re scary but not like that way
Michael Starr : Yes we’re not like we’re more like
Lexxi : Just being a bitch that scary other people.
Michael Starr : It’s a burden being wonderful.
Lexxi : That was a great recorder segways.
Michael Starr : If you listen records.
– Lexxi : So yeah.

WHY DID YOU CHOSE THESE SPECIFIC EIGHTIES SOUND ?
Michael Starr : You know what ? We didn’t choose it, it choose us.
Lexxi : The life style, the chicks like (il te montre) If she camera can turn around, she’s hot, she’s like Tony catain (peut-être atomic kitten) on a jaywalk, can I say fuck ? ‘Cause she’s go hot like that, and and and there were, you never know anybody’s name. It was just a time were dudes were bitchin’ clothes like that and it was so cool to go on sunset, you know sunset over, and it was just bitchin’ all over the place. Bitchin, jaguars and bands were wam on the strip… (05:26)
Michael Starr : There was great time. You know.
Lexxi : Why not livin’ that now even if we’re not there.
Michael Starr : We live in every day. I just feel like you know, think about what drives Steel Panther.
Lexxi : It would be Jaguar.
Michael Starr : It would be a Jaguar or Mercedes or sexuality, drugs, party, really good time, and I think the eighties that’s what it was all about.
Lexxi : Poison said it Nothing but a good time.
Michael Starr : You don’t need nothing but a good time. I feel like the eighties we’re just not mean being together. (j’ai pas compris la façon don’t il le dit)
Lexxi : Are you glad to hear some of the things you remember back in the eighties ?
Michael Starr : He’s too young for that.
Lexxi : He might be, we’re up there.

SPOKEN FROM THE U.S. / GB DIFFERENCE?
Michael Starr : You should never ask question that are not important to you. I think that that question is important to you, because you brought up again. (97:22) Heavy metal is a way of life. Not ?
Lexxi : It is.
Michael Starr : You live it every day.
Lexxi : Look at me.
Michael Starr : He’s heavy metal.
Lexxi : And that’s a thing too. Back in the eighties, now bands get a tour, as much, we’re like band in the eighties that were around tour different places like Paris or wherever we’re going next. You got to se we’re in parties with these people, and parties like every night. And we do try to put our penis in most of time we do put our penis in bunch of girls vaginas, like they did back in the eighties. It sucks now because disease has got to a point were you can’t…
Michael Starr : Very dangerous. You catch like very bad disease in that.
Lexxi : We’re so lucky now, usually there’s here and here. Now we’re back in the eighties. So we have to… (l’autre parle dessus)
Michael Starr : In the nineties or 2000, you have to be carefull. Sole people use condoms, we don’t use condoms, because condoms they don’t feel good.

BUT WHEN YOU SAY THAT I DID NOT PROTECT ME AND IN ADDITION TO THIS PACKAGE YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM EVERYWHERE. YOUR ALBUM WON’T BE AVAILABLE !
Michael Starr : We’re banned everywhere anyway.
Lexxi : Not in France
Michael Starr : No no we won’t be banned here because you guys are mot liberal. But in America, getting a record into stores Is really, I don’t think any of our records are in any stores. No, it’s just the way it is. America is not ready for what Steel Panther has. Yeh. Am I right ?
Lexxi : I think so, I also think that yes because that’s right, they have that things that’s going on everywhere.
Michael Starr : America is ready. I shouldn’t say that they’re not ready, because,
Lexxi : They’re ready, I just think that certain parts they gonna go : Ho my God it‘s the best thing ever. They’re not gonna know they’re ready. I think some people all know they’re ready.
Michael Starr : It’s like when you’re ready to fuck a girl, and she says no, really inside she means yes. It’s the same thing.

DO NOT YOU THINK I AFFIRM DO NOT USE CONDOMS IS CRIMINAL ?
Lexxi : Yeah.
Michael Starr : No no no, it’s a personal choice. It’s like abortion. it’s you choice. You can choose whatever you want to do. I choose not to use condoms because they don’t feel good.
Lexxi : And that’s when you say criminal you give Micahel a tough time, because sometimes…
Michael Starr : No don’t say that. No no no.
Lexxi : She doesn’t remember, I’m sorry.
Michael Starr : But you know it’s I don’t condamn dangerous sex, I think that you should have sex with somebody that you can trust and you have a good feeling about, just to have sex with some random street woman, is probably not a good idea.

HOW CAN YOU TRUST THE GROUPIE YOU MEET ?
Michael Starr : For me ? I have a distinct sense of smell, passed down from my generation. And I can smell
Lexxi : Somebody still some shit…
Michael Starr : No no no I’m talking about STD sexual disease, I can smell that. So if I go down to a girl, before I have put my penis in such a girl vagina, I’m gonna survey the area, smell it. Usually I can smell a shit, chlamydia, or diarrhea, the only one that’s is really hard to smell is HIV. It doesn’t have a taste…
Lexxi : Yeah let’s take that, that’s a sneak disease. That’s tap on purpose.
Michael Starr : I can smell gonorrhea, this infections easy, because they all suck.
Lexxi : It’s ease to go down…

CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THIS ALBUM COVER ?
Michael Starr : It’s a good one.
It’s the last…
Lexxi : Was it that, it’s just a big deal, because I’ve never see that picture before.
Michael Starr : It’s the last supper.

SO YOU NAME IT!
Michael Starr : They call it the last supper, but for us it’s not the last supper, it’s the beginning

IS HERE ANY GIRL UNDERNEATH ?
Michael Starr : Ho underneath ? Of course…
Lexxi : I love Paris.
Michael Starr : This is our own conception, of that diner. For us it’s all you can eat, food always come, there’s plenty girls and there’s plenty heavy metal. Always. Nothing to feel guilty about. Enjoy your life, have fun, fucking party.
Lexxi : That’s what it is (12 :14) It’s everybody last supper like I just explained that…
Michael Starr : (12:18) But every night is a last supper.
Lexxi : Yeah ! Why even call it last… You should be partying like it’s the last supper. But it isn’t because tomorrow it’s one tune, it’s Let’s go partying like it’s the last supper. But well like we say in one our our song : « Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World ». You said it. You said it.
Michael Starr : Yes, I’m a singer so…
Lexxi : But sometimes, and that’s one of the song they told me you said that. But you say it to every people. He only said it to you.
Michael Starr : And you.
Lexxi : Yeah but I’m not going to say it like you do. Like that.
Michael Starr : That’s what make thing go clear.
Lexxi : Have you seen the video ? So take that, but with diner.
Michael Starr : I think it’s a great way to live life.

IT REMINDS ME THE SONG OF KISS…
Michael Starr : It’s called Rock and Roll al nite
Michael Starr : Cause I want to rock and roll all nite, and party every day…. It’s our birthday like tomorrow is the end of the world….
Lexxi : It sounds like that but it’s not. You se Bon Jovi can get away with prying and all that stuff, but we’re going to get some tough time with this.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT WITH YOU TATTOO IN YOUR RIGHT ARM ? PUNK
Michael Starr : Ho punk. Well I was born in Chicago, and my dad said : You’re fucking little punk ! Get a job.

WHAT KIND OF BANDS WERE YOU LISTENING YOUGER ?
Lexxi : UFO, Scorpions, Van Halen.

THEY ARE NOT PUNK
Michael Starr : No no it’s not punk. Not music. No no no it’s not about music. It’s a word my dad called me. In America you go : Hey you little punk.
Lexxi : Get of the trash, in Cleveland too, get out the trash ! And you go it’s like spu, spu, (il parle d’un putois là)
Michael Starr : No it’s a skunk. I tell you, a punk is like a little thief. There are punk.
Lexxi : Well the same thing with skunk, we left over where there’s food, that we couldn’t save for the animals, and we take it, same thing that the punk. I guess.
Michael Starr : Not really the same…

TELL ME ABOUT THE AMERICAN DREAM TODAY DOES IS STILL EXIST
Michael Starr : Yes, I love the eighties, fuck Motley Crue, Van Halen,
Lexxi : Britny Fox, Danger Danger,
Michael Starr : Eveyrything about it. It’s such a great time. There’s a really good time because, for me, because I was living with my mum, and my mum was single, so she could have different guys come over. One time she had these guys come over who played in a band, and he left his guitar there and he never came back. So I got these guy guitar and that’s how I learned how to play. Do you remember the band Ratt ? Il learned a song call Run Around on this guitar.
Lexxi : It’s also like ma mum too, ‘cause my mum the over and fucked her and never, never come back.
Michael Starr : Yes but he loved guitars…
Michael Starr : Don’t say that. Your mom got fucked too, so it’s cool.
Lexxi : Yeah, I didn’t get a guitar.
Michael Starr : But you got to meet a lot of guys.
Lexxi : I did, some of them might didn’t go.

BUT ABOUT TODAY, WHAT’S THE PLACE OF STEEL PANTHER IN CALIFORNIA ?
Lexxi : They clap.
Michael Starr : They go like yeah yeah yeah.
Lexxi : They show their tits, they do the same thing like they do here.

IS IT MORE SUCCESSFUL IN EUROPE ?
Lexxi : Like how, successful meaning people come to our shows or…
Michael Starr : More people I would say it. It’s, we’ve never making any money anyway. I would say it started in UK for us. But prior to the UK, we’ve been in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, every week for twelwe years. Every week. So we had a hudge following there. But a bigger follower in UK came over, and now it started to spread all over the world. Australia… Paris, yeah, fifteen hundred seat club is a pretty big venue for heavy metal band from the eighties.

BUT IN THE 1980S THE HEAYVY LETAL BANDS SOLD MILLIONS OF ALBUMS! WHAT’S HAPPENED ?
Michael Starr : Nirvana.
Lexxi : Nirvana happened, the Pearl Jam.
Michael Starr : STP,
Lexxi : Soundgarden.
Lexxi : Seattle. Seattle happened.
Michael Starr : The internet.
Lexxi : Seattle
Michael Starr : What else ?Short haircuts.
Lexxi : Yea you remember the scissors do.
Michael Starr : Drug awareness. A lot of thing happened.

SOME OF THE BAND LOST THEIR HAIR.
Michael Starr : Yeah, they lost their hair.

ABOUT GROUPIES, WHICH COUNTRY IS BEST ?
Michael Starr : Ho it’s a good question. It really doesn’t matter what country we’re in,
Lexxi : Yeah it’s a tough one. Because if we’re doing our job right, we gonna know how many girl there gonna be in the tour bus. But as long as we do our job way. It should me measure by country. Or equal… What ever it is.
Michael Starr : In some place, we play some places several times, and like at one show, there’s not so many girls, like supper hot. And you come back to the same place, and there’s hot chicks. You just never know what place is gonna produce, the kind of pussy you’re looking for. But you know, there’s a lot of hot chicks all over the world which is great for us because we like hot chick you know. But then again you have to remember hot chick, some guys have different taste. You know what I mean ?
Lexxi : Away to you.
Michael Starr : Prospective. You know what prospective means ? He like really tall skinny girls, I like shorter skinny girl, he like bloddy… He likes guys… So if you ask him here the hot guys are ? In which country, it would be the same for him…

WHO’S THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ?
Michael Starr : I don’t know. That’s a lot of pressure. You know, to be the guys who’s going to get more pussy in the band.
Lexxi : There’s three good lockin’ dudes, in the front, and we have all different taste. So if I was by myself, I would say me.
Michael Starr : And I’m not gonna fuck chicks that I normally wouldn’t fuck, just I can be the guy say I’ve got more pussies. I’m away above that. You know, I like take my time, and just be with the girls I wanna be with. So no, I would say we’re pretty equals. And if I was alone, and he wasn’t there, I’ll get the most pussies.

Paris, le 30 Janvier 2014
Le Hard Rock Café Paris est de nouveau l’endroit où les artistes Rock se rendent. Logique, c’est central et l’équipe sait recevoir les musiciens.
Ce sont les membres du groupe Steel Panther que nous allons retrouver.
Lexxi Foxxx et Mickael Starr seront en habit de scène – à moins qu’ils ne soient comme ça tous les jours – et l’interview peut commencer.
Très « années 80 », les Steel Panther revendiquent leur style Hair Metal de mecs qui aiment le sexe, la drogue et la fête.
Lexxi Foxxx, son miroir rose à portée de main, se maquille régulièrement avec démonstration de gestes efféminés. Difficile de l’associer à la virilité de métalleux poilus et cloutés 🙂
Ils savent qu’ils ont une belle gueule et profitent de leur succès auprès des femmes.

Les Steel Panther sont réputés pour leurs vidéos délirantes, vulgaires, voir obscènes mais drôles.
Ils seront en concert le 11 Mars au Bataclan
Par Dominique Planche et Christian Eudeline

Sortie de l’album: le 31 Mars 2014

One time she had these guys come over who played in a band, and he left his guitar there and he never came back. So I got these guy guitar and that’s how I learned how to play. Do you remember the band Ratt ? Il learned a song call Run Around on this guitar.
Lexxi : It’s also like ma mum too, ‘cause my mum the over and fucked her and never, never come back.
Michael Starr : Yes but he loved guitars…
Michael Starr : Don’t say that. Your mom got fucked too, so it’s cool.
Lexxi : Yeah, I didn’t get a guitar.
Michael Starr : But you got to meet a lot of guys.
Lexxi : I did, some of them might didn’t go.

BUT ABOUT TODAY, WHAT’S THE PLACE OF STEEL PANTHER IN CALIFORNIA ?
Lexxi : They clap.
Michael Starr : They go like yeah yeah yeah.
Lexxi : They show their tits, they do the same thing like they do here.

IS IT MORE SUCCESSFUL IN EUROPE ?
Lexxi : Like how, successful meaning people come to our shows or…
Michael Starr : More people I would say it. It’s, we’ve never making any money anyway. I would say it started in UK for us. But prior to the UK, we’ve been in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, every week for twelwe years. Every week. So we had a hudge following there. But a bigger follower in UK came over, and now it started to spread all over the world. Australia… Paris, yeah, fifteen hundred seat club is a pretty big venue for heavy metal band from the eighties.

BUT IN THE 1980S THE HEAYVY LETAL BANDS SOLD MILLIONS OF ALBUMS! WHAT’S HAPPENED ?
Michael Starr : Nirvana.

Michael Starr : Yeah, they lost their hair.

ABOUT GROUPIES, WHICH COUNTRY IS BEST ?
Michael Starr : Ho it’s a good question. It really doesn’t matter what country we’re in,
Lexxi : Yeah it’s a tough one. Because if we’re doing our job right, we gonna know how many girl there gonna be in the tour bus. But as long as we do our job way. It should me measure by country. Or equal… What ever it is.
Michael Starr : In some place, we play some places several times, and like at one show, there’s not so many girls, like supper hot. And you come back to the same place, and there’s hot chicks. You just never know what place is gonna produce, the kind of pussy you’re looking for. But you know, there’s a lot of hot chicks all over the world which is great for us because we like hot chick you know. But then again you have to remember hot chick, some guys have different taste. You know what I mean ?
Lexxi : Away to you.
Michael Starr : Prospective. You know what prospective means ? He like really tall skinny girls, I like shorter skinny girl, he like bloddy… He likes guys… So if you ask him here the hot guys are ? In which country, it would be the same for him…

WHO’S THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ?
Michael Starr : I don’t know. That’s a lot of pressure. You know, to be the guys who’s going to get more pussy in the band.
Lexxi : There’s three good lockin’ dudes, in the front, and we have all different taste. So if I was by myself, I would say me.
Michael Starr : And I’m not gonna fuck chicks that I normally wouldn’t fuck, just I can be the guy say I’ve got more pussies. I’m away above that. You know, I like take my time, and just be with the girls I wanna be with. So no, I would say we’re pretty equals. And if I was alone, and he wasn’t there, I’ll get the most pussies.

The Burden of Being Wonderful

WHAT IS THE PART OF NOSTALGIA IN THE BAND STEEL PANTHER ?
Lexxi : What’s nostalgia ?
Michael Starr : Nostalgia is like what do we think about the oldest stuff ?
Lexxi : OK.
Michael Starr : You know like Steel Panther, we’re based well our roots are formally planted in the eighties. We love metal from the eighties. (02 :30) And now, look at us now, you think they just be nostalgic. We’re leavin’ in the eighties.
Lexxi : Do you help with that thing Michael, ho now you have developped I’m sur what it is.
Michael Starr : We like brand new but old.
Lexxi : Please say our age, because we’re old.
Michael Starr : Yeah.
Lexxi : What you mean ever world ?
Michael Starr : We’re old, but the stuff that we do is new, but it’s based from old. (02’59)

DO YOU THINK THERE’S NOSTALGIA IN THE WAY YOU PLAY THAT HEAVY METAL ?
Michael Starr : Our influences come from the eighties, so yeah, definitely, it definitely ends up being a part of our music and part of our sound. And I think what we’ve done is we take a sound from the eighties that we love so much, the heavy metal, and we put it in today’s music and mix it together. And that brings Steel Panther.

WE CAN ALSO TALK ABOUT YOUR LOOK, IT’S BEEN AWHILE SINCE WE HAD NOT SEEN SUCH A GETUP…
Michael Starr : You mean good looking pretty bands?

HAIR METAL IT IS CALLED IN FRANCE ?
Michael Starr : Yes we are, butt metal in some places, glam rock, there’s a lot of different titles for. We just like to call it heavy metal. But you know, whatever everybody call us, unless you call us faggots.
Lexxi : Yeah yeah yeah, hey you cock suckers ! Or, hey you fuckin assholes ! I don’t like that. But sometimes you can’t help us because we look different you know. So you’re gonna get that, you’re gonna get those mean people…
Michael Starr : jealous people. Those guys knows a band they’re jealous because we’re so, he’s beautiful. I’m a really good looking guy. And you see us on stage it’s intimidating, it’s scary for other bands…
Lexxi : We’re scary but not like that way
Michael Starr : Yes we’re not like we’re more like
Lexxi : Just being a bitch that scary other people.
Michael Starr : It’s a burden being wonderful.
Lexxi : That was a great recorder segways.
Michael Starr : If you listen records.
– Lexxi : So yeah.

WHY DID YOU CHOSE THESE SPECIFIC EIGHTIES SOUND ?
Michael Starr : You know what ? We didn’t choose it, it choose us.
Lexxi : The life style, the chicks like (il te montre) If she camera can turn around, she’s hot, she’s like Tony catain (peut-être atomic kitten) on a jaywalk, can I say fuck ? ‘Cause she’s go hot like that, and and and there were, you never know anybody’s name. It was just a time were dudes were bitchin’ clothes like that and it was so cool to go on sunset, you know sunset over, and it was just bitchin’ all over the place. Bitchin, jaguars and bands were wam on the strip… (05:26)
Michael Starr : There was great time. You know.
Lexxi : Why not livin’ that now even if we’re not there.
Michael Starr : We live in every day. I just feel like you know, think about what drives Steel Panther.
Lexxi : It would be Jaguar.
Michael Starr : It would be a Jaguar or Mercedes or sexuality, drugs, party, really good time, and I think the eighties that’s what it was all about.
Lexxi : Poison said it Nothing but a good time.
Michael Starr : You don’t need nothing but a good time. I feel like the eighties we’re just not mean being together. (j’ai pas compris la façon don’t il le dit)
Lexxi : Are you glad to hear some of the things you remember back in the eighties ?
Michael Starr : He’s too young for that.
Lexxi : He might be, we’re up there.

SPOKEN FROM THE U.S. / GB DIFFERENCE?
Michael Starr : You should never ask question that are not important to you. I think that that question is important to you, because you brought up again. (97:22) Heavy metal is a way of life. Not ?
Lexxi : It is.
Michael Starr : You live it every day.
Lexxi : Look at me.
Michael Starr : He’s heavy metal.
Lexxi : And that’s a thing too. Back in the eighties, now bands get a tour, as much, we’re like band in the eighties that were around tour different places like Paris or wherever we’re going next. You got to se we’re in parties with these people, and parties like every night. And we do try to put our penis in most of time we do put our penis in bunch of girls vaginas, like they did back in the eighties. It sucks now because disease has got to a point were you can’t…
Michael Starr : Very dangerous. You catch like very bad disease in that.
Lexxi : We’re so lucky now, usually there’s here and here. Now we’re back in the eighties. So we have to… (l’autre parle dessus)
Michael Starr : In the nineties or 2000, you have to be carefull. Sole people use condoms, we don’t use condoms, because condoms they don’t feel good.

BUT WHEN YOU SAY THAT I DID NOT PROTECT ME AND IN ADDITION TO THIS PACKAGE YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM EVERYWHERE. YOUR ALBUM WON’T BE AVAILABLE !
Michael Starr : We’re banned everywhere anyway.
Lexxi : Not in France
Michael Starr : No no we won’t be banned here because you guys are mot liberal. But in America, getting a record into stores Is really, I don’t think any of our records are in any stores. No, it’s just the way it is. America is not ready for what Steel Panther has. Yeh. Am I right ?
Lexxi : I think so, I also think that yes because that’s right, they have that things that’s going on everywhere.
Michael Starr : America is ready. I shouldn’t say that they’re not ready, because,
Lexxi : They’re ready, I just think that certain parts they gonna go : Ho my God it‘s the best thing ever. They’re not gonna know they’re ready. I think some people all know they’re ready.
Michael Starr : It’s like when you’re ready to fuck a girl, and she says no, really inside she means yes. It’s the same thing.

DO NOT YOU THINK I AFFIRM DO NOT USE CONDOMS IS CRIMINAL ?
Lexxi : Yeah.
Michael Starr : No no no, it’s a personal choice. It’s like abortion. it’s you choice. You can choose whatever you want to do. I choose not to use condoms because they don’t feel good.
Lexxi : And that’s when you say criminal you give Micahel a tough time, because sometimes…
Michael Starr : No don’t say that. No no no.
Lexxi : She doesn’t remember, I’m sorry.
Michael Starr : But you know it’s I don’t condamn dangerous sex, I think that you should have sex with somebody that you can trust and you have a good feeling about, just to have sex with some random street woman, is probably not a good idea.

HOW CAN YOU TRUST THE GROUPIE YOU MEET ?
Michael Starr : For me ? I have a distinct sense of smell, passed down from my generation. And I can smell
Lexxi : Somebody still some shit…
Michael Starr : No no no I’m talking about STD sexual disease, I can smell that. So if I go down to a girl, before I have put my penis in such a girl vagina, I’m gonna survey the area, smell it. Usually I can smell a shit, chlamydia, or diarrhea, the only one that’s is really hard to smell is HIV. It doesn’t have a taste…
Lexxi : Yeah let’s take that, that’s a sneak disease. That’s tap on purpose.
Michael Starr : I can smell gonorrhea, this infections easy, because they all suck.
Lexxi : It’s ease to go down…

CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THIS ALBUM COVER ?
Michael Starr : It’s a good one.
It’s the last…
Lexxi : Was it that, it’s just a big deal, because I’ve never see that picture before.
Michael Starr : It’s the last supper.

SO YOU NAME IT!
Michael Starr : They call it the last supper, but for us it’s not the last supper, it’s the beginning

IS HERE ANY GIRL UNDERNEATH ?
Michael Starr : Ho underneath ? Of course…
Lexxi : I love Paris.
Michael Starr : This is our own conception, of that diner. For us it’s all you can eat, food always come, there’s plenty girls and there’s plenty heavy metal. Always. Nothing to feel guilty about. Enjoy your life, have fun, fucking party.
Lexxi : That’s what it is (12 :14) It’s everybody last supper like I just explained that…
Michael Starr : (12:18) But every night is a last supper.
Lexxi : Yeah ! Why even call it last… You should be partying like it’s the last supper. But it isn’t because tomorrow it’s one tune, it’s Let’s go partying like it’s the last supper. But well like we say in one our our song : « Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World ». You said it. You said it.
Michael Starr : Yes, I’m a singer so…
Lexxi : But sometimes, and that’s one of the song they told me you said that. But you say it to every people. He only said it to you.
Michael Starr : And you.
Lexxi : Yeah but I’m not going to say it like you do. Like that.
Michael Starr : That’s what make thing go clear.
Lexxi : Have you seen the video ? So take that, but with diner.
Michael Starr : I think it’s a great way to live life.

IT REMINDS ME THE SONG OF KISS…
Michael Starr : It’s called Rock and Roll al nite
Michael Starr : Cause I want to rock and roll all nite, and party every day…. It’s our birthday like tomorrow is the end of the world….
Lexxi : It sounds like that but it’s not. You se Bon Jovi can get away with prying and all that stuff, but we’re going to get some tough time with this.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT WITH YOU TATTOO IN YOUR RIGHT ARM ? PUNK

Lexxi : Get of the trash, in Cleveland too, get out the trash ! And you go it’s like spu, spu, (il parle d’un putois là)
Michael Starr : No it’s a skunk. I tell you, a punk is like a little thief. There are punk.
Lexxi : Well the same thing with skunk, we left over where there’s food, that we couldn’t save for the animals, and we take it, same thing that the punk. I guess.
Michael Starr : Not really the same…
