Little Visionary Dogstar-(Zoo)
Okay, even though as bassist he's really the least
important cog in this machine, let's face it, all of us are thinking of Dogstar as movie
star Keanu Reeves' band.
Dogstar ends up being a pretty good band, not revolutionary
fact they're a little derivative – but not embarrassing, either (remember Johnny Depp's
Original tunes like the grunge anthem "Forgive" and the more musically
adventurous "Breathe Tonight" rock out with style. A nice cover of Badfinger's
"No Matter What" shows taste – the song is good enough it can't be done badly
– but, it doesn't keep up with the original or even Jellyfish' cover a few years ago.
for Reeves' bass playing, it's fine, not overly intrusive and he never seems to mess up.
Would Dogstar have gotten a record contract without Reeves on bass? Maybe not, but they
probably do deserve it.
