Steel Panther asking fans to vote and help narrow potential bassist field from Top 32 to Top 10
Steel Panther members consisting of lead vocalist Michael Starr, guitarist Satchel and drummer Stix Zadinia have made the rather bold move to ask their fans to help them narrow the field of potential bassists to find the one who will be replacing long-time bassist Lexxi Foxx with whom the band parted with back in July 2021.
Steel Panther are not putting their entire fate in the fans’ hands since fans are only asked to narrow the potential bassist field from the Top 32 candidates to eight candidates while the group has already chosen two finalists to make the remaining Top 10.
The group has had a number of potential bassists play live with them since September 2021 including Phil “Silk Pockett” Buckman and Rikki Dazzle. The latter is apparently one of the two finalists already chosen by Steel Panther.
The following message was posted on Steel Panther‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Two Finalists are in, Eight More To Be Selected. That’s where you come in…
Welcome to The Road to the Road Tournament! From over 1669 submissions, we’ve narrowed the field to the top 32 and we want YOU to help us determine the top 10!
Every day between now and December 24th, we’re featuring two bassists as we work our way through the bracket below. All you have to do is check out the videos and vote for your favorites! Let the games BEGIN!!
