It seems that somebody at Amazon either doesn’t know the difference between MÖTLEY CRÜE and STEEL PANTHER or is deliberately making a pretty hilarious statement.
Amazon is currently using what appears to be a band pic of glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER to promote the upcoming documentary “Rock n’ Roll Icon: Motley Crue“. And mistake or not we just find that hilariously awesome.
STEEL PANTHER singer Michael Starr is aware of the online error and even posted a fan-made video over the weekend (Sunday July 31) to his social media which you can check out for yourself below.
The is one rather strange thing though. The individual at Amazon who created the graphic for the documentary actually got some of it right. When you look at the upper portion of the picture, the correct MÖTLEY CRÜE imaging seems to be there. Upon close inspection you can make out the lower half of Vince Neil’s face on the far left and even less of Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, and then a full upper half guitarist Mick Mars. So the person responsible seems to have melded together two different photos, of two different bands. A possible flub? Or a tongue-in-cheek nod to the mighty STEEL PANTHER who have established themselves as the ultimate 80’s throwback “hair metal” band jokesters that we all know and love so dearly.
