Steel Panther is looking for a new bassist, and according to the comments section of one of their Instagram posts, fans want them to work with Nikki Sixx.
Steel Panther is a rock band mostly known for their humorous lyrics and exaggerated representation of the glam-metal lifestyle in their live performances. Since its formation in 2000, the band has had three name changes; they were first called Metal Shop, then Metal Skool, and ultimately the Steel Panther.
Still active in the metal scene, Steel Panther’s lineup consisted of Michael Starr, Satchell, Stix Zadinia, and Lexxi Foxx. However, after 21 years in the band, Lexxi Foxx left on July 17, 2021. Steel Panther then claimed it was a mutual decision as Lexxi Foxx decided to concentrate on his side business, ‘Sexy Lexxi’s Prettiest Pets.’
Currently, Steel Panther is holding open auditions to find a new bassist as a replacement for Lexxi Foxx. Moreover, they recently posted a new video on their Instagram to update the fans on bass player submissions. In the post, the band said there is still time to apply and asked their fans to submit a video if they think they have what it takes.
Steel Panther’s Instagram post read:
“Update on bass player submissions: We’ve reached a very important threshold… To all who have submitted. We see you. We appreciate you. We appreciate your patience.
Note: If you submitted the video without your email address in the title, please email our site!
For those who’ve been waiting, there’s still time! Think you’ve got what it takes? Submit now on our official website!”
However, throughout the comments section of the post, the comment that received the most likes stated that the band should recruit Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx. Although some said that Sixx is too old, many disagreed.
The fan’s comment read:
“Nikki Sixx, you should hire him.”
Although Steel Panther hasn’t made a decision yet about who the new bassist will be, it appears some of their fans would love to see Nikki Sixx. However, the ultimate decision will definitely be a great surprise as everyone can submit their videos to apply.
