RHINO BUCKET – The Last Real Rock N’ Roll (Album Review)

There is life in this ole Rhino and this latest album shows a (gulp) sense of maturity that makes it a great listen.  The LA four-piece currently consists of Georg Dolivo (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Reeve Downes (bass guitar, backing vocals), Brian “Damage” Forsythe (lead guitar, backing vocals and Dave DuCey (drums).

RHINO BUCKET – The Last Real Rock and Roll (April 2017)

“We never did a ballad. Never will,” states RHINO BUCKET singer/rhythm guitarist Georg Dolivo. And the dozen songs on RHINO BUCKET‘s aptly titled seventh studio album bear witness to his statement: The dirty dozen tunes on The Last Real Rock ‘N’ Roll are no-holds-barred rockers boasting irresistible sing-along choruses, stellar solos, and gut-roiling rhythm section, making for riff-tastic bluesy bar-band rampage. If you don’t stomp your feet to “Falling Down The Stairs” and bang your head…

RHINO BUCKET – Ride with Yourself (MORC Spotlight)

RHINO BUCKET – Ride with Yourself (MORC Spotlight)

Many years ago when I was just a young “Meister”, my friends and I were enthralled by films such as Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Wayne’s World. Soundtracks from both films were popular rotations in our cars or at cottages etc. Buried deep on the second side of the Wayne’s World Soundtrack Cassette was a song titled “Ride with Yourself” by Rhino Bucket.
