Steel Panther posted the following announcement regarding their bass player Lexxi Foxx leaving the band:
The End of an EraThe 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!!
Autopsy posted the following info on long-time bassist Joe Trevisano leaving the band via their Instagram account:
Surreal as it is, our long-time bass player and friend Joe Trevisano has left the band.
Joe has been making records and kicking ass on stage all over the world with us for the entire chapter two of Autopsy going back to 2008. And before that he was in Abscess going back to 1997, and even before that…we knew Joe from the local scene around 1991 when he was in Von, so we have a long history together. Let it be known the split is on good terms.
Joe has decided to shift his focus to his family and we support him on this 100% and will always consider him part of the Autopsy gang.
In the meantime fear not, Autopsy will continue to forge ahead and we will keep you all posted on developments. We are not done crushing your skulls yet, so consider yourselves warned.
