If I had to pick the greatest thing about being in a metal band like Steel Panther, it would probably be a tossup between the non-stop partying and the fact that we party hard all the time!

That’s pretty much the same thing, I guess. Anyway, all of that partying has a purpose, because it helps to inspire great songs, like this month’s selection, All You Can Eat’s “Gang Bang at the Old Folk’s Home.”

I love the rhythm guitar part in this tune, because when I play it, I feel like James Hetfield from Metallica due to the non-stop use of all downstrokes with the pick-hand, something Hetfield has turned into an art form. And if it’s good enough for James Hetfield, it’s good enough for this dude!
