Steel Panther have announced that bassist Lexxi Foxx has checked into an “undisclosed sex rehab center” and will now be missing their upcoming tour dates. The band’s friend Spyder will fill in.
The group said the following:
“California rock and party legends Steel Panther have survived a career of living a decadent lifestyle surrounded by loud music, fast cars and beautiful women. That lifestyle of debauchery and proclivity towards random sexual encounters has finally caught up with the band’s bassist. Lexxi Foxx has voluntarily checked himself in to an undisclosed sex rehab. He will have to miss the current US tour that recently kicked off in Chicago. The band’s friend of over 30 years and backstage doorman Spyder will be filling in on bass for the upcoming tour dates.”
Drummer Stix Zadinia added:
“We love Lexxi Foxx…and his mother. We support his decision to enter sex rehab. We can’t wait for him to get back on the road with us after he learns how to have better sex.”

Steel Panther’s Satchel has shared a video of himself demoing a prototype build of his controversial “Pussy Melter” effects pedal. The guitarist previously faced backlash over the pedal due to people finding it sexist and disgusting. However, the band have since launched pre-orders for a limited edition run of it.
Steel Panther guitarist Satchel recently faced backlash over a new guitar pedal effect called the “Pussy Melter” due to people finding it sexist and disgusting. Now, the band have announced a limited edition run of the pedal and it can be pre-ordered HERE.
The group commented:
“We respect and love the freedom of speech afforded all citizens in the U.S. We support the right for all people to express themselves no matter where they are in the world. We welcome all races, genders and sexual orientations at our shows – shows that celebrate everyone’s individuality through partying, and of course a love of heavy metal.
As clearly stated by Satchel when it was originally developed, the sound being created by the Pussy Melter tone pack was intended to bring pleasure to females who heard it. Steel Panther is happy to announce that we are now offering pleasurable eargasms to everyone. The Pussy Melter distortion pedal is now available for pre-order in our official store, https://lnk.to/pussymelter.
This limited edition pedal will only be available until October 1, at which point orders will begin shipping.”
Steel Panther are set to perform at the 2018 Rock to Recovery benefit show. This year the event, which is set to take place on September 15 at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA, will honor Moby and it will be hosted by Bryan Fogel. Former Korn guitarist Wesley Geer founded Rock to Recovery in 2012 as a way to give non-musicians access to the healing powers of music. This includes helping people recovering from PTSD, alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, and cancer treatments.
