The official and verified Facebook account of Steel Panther released a new announcement today to announce that they officially parted ways with a long-time band member Lexxi Foxx.

You might know that Steel Panther is a California-based glam metal band that was founded back in 2000 by Michael Starr, Satchel, and bassist Lexxi Foxx. Today, the band announced that a 50-years-old homosexual bass player officially parted ways with the band after starting a side business named ‘Sexy Lexxi’s Prettiest Pets’ during the coronavirus outbreak.

In the announcement they made on Facebook and the official website of the band, Steel Panther stated that despite they may not ever find a bassist quite beautiful as Lexxi, they will continue to rock the world. However, the band did not announce the new bassist of the band yet.

Here is the official announcement:

“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!”
