The staff at The Cycling Independent is crushed by this news. How we’re the first to report it? Who knows … guess everyone else has Tour de France buy-out frenzy…
Bassist Lexxi Foxx has left Steel Panther.
The band announced Foxx’s departure in a social media post earlier today (Saturday, July 17).
Steel Panther wrote: “The End of an Era.
“The great pandemic of 2020-2037 has affected all of us. For some though, it has opened doors of opportunity and been a catalyst to seek out one’s true calling in life. This is Lexxi’s story. He started his side business, ‘Sexy Lexxi’s Prettiest Pets,’ to bring in money for Botox during the lockdown. But something miraculous happened. He realized that his love for making pets pretty was greater than his love for being pretty himself. Lexxi discovered a greater love. Possibly, the greatest love of all.
“Lexxi has chosen to hang up his mirror and focus on his newfound passion. Making ugly dogs pretty. Anyway, after nearly 40 years of rocking together and taking Steel Panther from the Viper Room to headlining Wembley Arena, it is with heavy hearts —but great heavy metal memories — that we bid Lexxi Foxx farewell. We love you and we wish you a wonderful future putting eyeliner on chihuahuas.
“Steel Panther will continue to rock the world. And though we may not ever find a bassist quite as beautiful as Lexxi, it shouldn’t be hard to find one to match his towering intellect.
“Good Luck… And goodbye Lexxi Foxx!!”
Rumors are strongly circulating that he, real name Travis Haley, may be joining Megadeth as its new bass player or more possibly in a continued career in the work of helping of dogs, cats and other animals of which he’s been a major supporter. Cheers to that, Mr. Haley.
