The actor discussed his short-lived rock group trolling a metal crowd with a Grateful Dead cover in a 'GQ' interview.
Keanu Reeves knows exactly what you think about his 1990s pseudo-grunge band Dogstar, because he kind of thinks the same thing.
"I guess it would have helped if our band was better," he tells GQ magazine in the current cover story. The 54 year-old John Wick star spends plenty of time talking about the film franchise's cold-as-ice, revenge-seeking hero and his release from "movie jail," but when the subject turns to his short-lived rock star moment, the famously monosyllabic, stone-faced actor gets a bit silly.
He says he felt bad for the rest of the group, who inevitably got painted as those dudes in that actor's band, but it sounds like they had fun with it while it lasted. Dogstar was famously formed after Reeves -- recently the subject of a song bearing his name by Logic -- spotted actor Robert Mailhouse in a grocery store in 1991, where the two bonded over the future Dogstar drummer's Detroit Red Wings sweater. That serendipitous hockey-lovers moment led to the pair jamming together and inviting original singer/guitarist Gregg Miller to join them in 1992.
