Steel Panther
Face it: Bassist Lexxi Foxx is never coming back to Steel Panther. He’s been replaced by two guys with just as ridiculous names, Rikki Dazzle and Rikki Thrash. Sometimes it does take two to replace one (ask Fleetwood Mac), but to be honest, when you release a guitar tone called the “Pussy Melter,” maybe it’s time to drop the ego.

If that’s something you’re into, the comedic glam stars are back in St. Pete  tonight for the second time in COVID-era America. Right before the celebratory end of 2020, the band rocked Jannus with a special guest spot from wrestler Chris Jericho present to help out on covers of Van Halen and Judas Priest. Maybe it’ll be Hulk Hogan this time around at Jannus Live. You all know damn well that anything can happen in Florida.
