Rhino Bucket is a hard rock band from Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California.
The band was formed in February 1986 by Georg Dolivo (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Reeve Downes (bass guitar, backing vocals), Greg Fields (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Rick Kubach (drums). This lineup played the Los Angeles rock scene for a year with contemporaries such as Junkyard ,The Four Horsemen .Rage Against the Machine and others. Warner Brothers signed the band in 1989 and they released their self-titled debut album in 1990 with Liam Jason (Jackie Enx) from Warrior on drums.
Their second album, 1992's Get Used To It was recorded in Memphis with producer Terry Manning. The album contained "Ride With Yourself" which was featured in the hit movie Wayne's World. In 1993, drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC,Dio) joined the band and appeared on the 1994 album Pain. The band continued extensive touring, but by 1996 the band went on what turned out to be an extended hiatus.
After fiddling with a few different names and lineups Rhino Bucket reformed in 2001 with Brian "Damage" Forsythe from Kix joining the core group in February 2000, and taking on lead guitar duties from Fields (aka Fidelman) who had gone on to a successful producing and engineering career. The band worked on a few movie soundtracks including the pot cult film Rolling Kansas and the title song for the movie The Outdoorsmen - Blood, Sweat & Beers. Again the band became a fixture on the now quite different L.A. rock scene.
In April 2006 Rhino Bucket released And Then It Got Ugly and then proceeded to tour with like minded friends Broken Teeth, The Supersuckers and Kix. 2007 saw the release of two new CDs Pain & Suffering and No Song Left Behind. The former is a enhanced (5 new tracks) of their 1994 album Pain,while the latter is a compilation of un-released songs and live performances. In July of the same year Simon Wright reunited with the band at the Rocklahoma festival. Rhino Bucket released The Hardest Town in May 2009 with Wright behind the kit. The band was also featured on The Wrestler soundtrack and album during this time. In 2010 the band returned to Europe for the first time in over 15 years with a 45 date tour that travelled to 14 countries.
The bands latest album Who's Got Mine? was released in January 2011 to enthusiastic reviews by both press and fans. The band then embarked on two European tours making 71 appearances most notably at the Sweden Rock Festival where they played for over 10,000 fans. Currently Rhino Bucket is preparing for a Summer tour of America while working on their newest record for an early 2012 drop date.
