Steel Panther: “We May Never Find Another Replacement” For Bassist Lexxi Foxx

During a recent interview with RAMzine, Steel Panther offered an update on their ongoing search for a bassist. However, singer Michael Starr said they “may never find another replacement for Lexxi [Foxx].”

Starr said the following:

“We tried out over… We had how many video submissions… probably [over 700]. And we went through every single video. And we did some test runs with some people. And when we find the right guy, you guys will know.”

Drummer Stix Zadinia continued:

“On this tour, we have our friend Spyder with us, who is a great friend and an even better bass player. He’s not that great a friend. I’m kidding. He’s awesome. We’ve known him since 1990. He’s one of our homies and he’s killing it. And we cannot wait to jam with him. But we are still searching for the permanent guy ’cause Spyder’s got another gig; he’s got a paper route that he works on.”

Starr then added:

“We may never find another replacement for Lexxi. We love him. We miss him dearly. And I’m glad he’s doing what he wants to do in life. But replacing him, it’s like trying to replace Stix or me — it’s impossible. So we may never, ever have a bass player. We might just be trying out bass players until I die.”

Zadinia concluded:

“And every time we get a new guy, we just say, ‘Hey, come out. There’s no money involved. So just try out.’ We just keep doing it forever.”
