If you saw Steel Panther during their “Sunset Strip Live!” tour, you’ve already joined them in celebrating the evolution of heavy metal as they performed some of the genre’s most recognizable covers along with some of their best original songs.

Michael Starr portrays Ozzy Osbourne in a black T-shirt with long sleeves, copying all the tricks, including clapping his hands, appearing lost, and saying catchphrases like “we love you” and “let me see your hands.”
