    Is Keanu Reeves Reviving His Music Career?

    n the late 80s, Keanu Reeves came out to become a big Hollywood star, debuting with the short film ‘One Step Away.’ But, in the 1990s, amidst a thriving Hollywood career, Keanu decided to chase his hobby of music during his career peak. So, he tags Robert Mailhouse, who can be the drummer and bassist; Bret Damrose on the guitar; and Keanu as the bassist and backing vocalist.

    The grunge rock band Dogstar starts on a good note. They started opening for music legends like David Bowie and Bon Jovi in 1995. In 1996, they released their first EP titled ‘Quattro Formaggi,’ but it tanked. Despite their sold-out shows in Tokyo and Los Angeles, the band couldn’t sustain itself on the scene, and they disbanded in 2002, performing for one last time in Ebisu Garden Hall, Tokyo. However, there is still hope, as Keanu Reeves and Co. will be making a comeback.

    During an interview with GQ magazine in 2019, Keanu Reeves talked about Dogstar and how his shift to music led to the downfall of the band. He said, “I guess it would have helped if our band was better.”

    The actor recalled, “We played Milwaukee Metal Fest. Got killed. I think we played close to [belligerent New York hardcore-punk legends] Murphy’s Law. Imagine. So we played a Grateful Dead cover, at Milwaukee Metal Fest.”

    He continued, “We were like, ‘They hate us. What are we doing here? What can we do? Let’s do the Grateful Dead cover.’ They were just like, F*** you, you suck. I had the biggest grin on my face, man.”
