There are more than a few popular actors who dabble in music, usually as singers who don’t take this aspect of their career seriously and who are surely not serious as instrumentalists – with the exclusion of Johnny Depp refusing to understand he can’t really play and taking himself too seriously. Keanu Reaves is different: playing bass with DOGSTAR – a band he cofounded back in 1991 and saw break up in 2002 after only a two solid albums. But, having returned to the scene in 2022 and to the stage in May 2023, the trio prepared a fresh record for release.
Planned for October 6th, the ensemble’s first new music in more than 20 years consists of a dozen pieces which form a platter lengthily titled “Somewhere Between The Power Lines And Palm Trees”; and yes, Reeves is still a part of the collective – on par with guitarist-vocalist Bret Domrose and drummer Robert Mailhouse. Whether they retained a grungy edge can be heard in a couple of videos below.
