For hundreds of years music has had a long, salacious relationship with sex. Some rockers have indulged in their vices for so long that they need to admit themselves into rehab, and Steel Panther's bassist Lexxi Foxx is the most recent artist to check himself into recovery.
"California rock and party legends Steel Panther have survived a career of living a decadent lifestyle surrounded by loud music, fast cars and beautiful women" says a statement released by the band. "That lifestyle of debauchery and proclivity towards random sexual encounters has finally caught up with the band’s bassist. Lexxi Foxx has voluntarily checked himself in to an undisclosed sex rehab. He will have to miss the current US tour that recently kicked off in Chicago. The band’s friend of over 30 years and backstage doorman Spyder will be filling in on bass for the upcoming tour dates."
Drummer Stix Zadinia adds, “We love Lexxi Foxx…and his mother. We support his decision to enter sex rehab. We can’t wait for him to get back on the road with us after he learns how to have better sex."
During their first show in Chicago with Spyder, guitarist Satchel said of Lexxi's temporary replacement, "The average IQ of the band just rose about 17 points."
Steel Panther will continue their tour around the country through January. You can find the full list of dates here.
