STEEL PANTHER Frontman MICHAEL STARR Reveals RIKKI DAZZLE Is Not The Band's New Bassist... Yet - "We Are Still In The Audition Process"

Steel Panther recently announced the departure of bassist Lexxi Foxx and has been accepting submissions for his replacement. They have been performing shows of late with a bassist going by the name Rikki Dazzle, who people naturally assumed was Lexxi's replacement. Frontman Michael Starr set the record straight via Instagram with a post that can be read below.

Steel Panther guitarist Satchel returned to the 2020'd podcast in September and talked about Lexxi Foxx leaving the band, the search for his replacement, and what the band is looking for in a potential member. They also talk about Satchel’s relationship tips, whether or not Ozzy Osbourne should still be touring, social distancing at shows, his views on censorship, his comedic influences and more.

Satchel on the departure of Lexxi Foxx

"We didn't want him to quit. Nobody wanted him to quit, including a lot of fans. I'm sure a lot of fans are very sad that he left, but he's the guy who left the band. I think he's got his own things he's dealing with, and he just wanted to go and do that. So, I don't know... I can't answer for Lexxi Foxx. But we will all miss Lexxi Foxx, and we all wish him the best in everything that he does. But we didn't fire him - he quit the band.

So we're gonna have to move on and get somebody else who's younger and foxier and doesn't need as much Botox. We did put the word out for bass players, and we've already gotten a lot of submissions. And we've gotten some really great ones as well. No musicians yet. We don't really want a musician, though - we want a bass player."
