--This post is dedicated to skits, thank you for upgrading me!
A bit back, Margarete of POTD sent out this little piece from a Scottish newspaper back in '96 along with a picture*...
Keanu Reeves caused a panic when his group Dogstar played the NME Stage in 1996. We couldn't find him - he'd decided to travel to the site at
Strathclyde Park on a bus from Glasgow. He wanted to get away from the whole star trip and mix with the fans. I got a call from security saying: "We've
got a guy here who says he's Keanu Reeves." I went down to the gate to check
it out - and it was him.
Then the caterers forgot to include a bottle of Jack Daniels in Dogstar's dressing room. The group had a pre-show ritual where they'd stand in a circle, take a swig of Jack Daniels and toast to a good gig. Keanu asked for some Scotch whisky instead so I got them a bottle of 17- year-old Ardbeg malt. They tried to down it in one but it was so strong they spat it back out.
I hear Reeves drinks The Macallan these days.
I can't handle my Scotch. Last time I drank Scotch, I think I went to a soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend's doorstep with all the cassettes he ever made me and sat there pulling the tape out of each until he came home with some girl. I think her name was Heather. I've never met a Heather that didn't try to fuck my boyfriend so even if her name wasn't Heather she was a Heather.
No offense to any Heathers by name that might be reading. Just stay away from my boyfriends.
I think I may have made a scene. I really can't recall.
I do know I swore off both Scotch and men for a while.
*I'm including a different picture because I'm not sure if the tennis ball is photoshopped in or not, but either way, it makes me wince.

LOL - me too....
I like the story..;)
it is so typical of Keanu - to take a bus trying to "get away from the whole star trip and mix with the fans...." I wonder if he would do such a thing again.
Hey, I got really good question - Keanu's next real girlfriend - will it be some kind of a star or just a girl nextdoor, like one of us???
come on now, what's your point of view???
I personally have a feeling that it will be somebody not so famous. He does need a good girl who rocks though. I wish it could be me.....
hee. You're welcome. I like that pic! ;)
Krix finds the best pics. *sigh* Its really not fair that he's so pretty...even when scruffy he's lickable.
To the question: Here's to hoping its a not so famous gal. And here's to hoping harder that its me (heeeee!!). I'm taking a 3 week course in L.A. in October. I hope he's not away filming..... A gal can dream. ;-)
Never knew about the whiskey ritual, cool!! :)
Thanks for sharing that, I like learning new tidbits.
Dogstar will rock again!
Hey I live in Scotland - I remember when they came here... Keanu went to this great Indian restaurant and had a huge curry - I've been in it and they've still got a picture on the wall of him with the Manager. The manager's gotta huge smile on his face. Mind you, if Keanu had just been eating in my restaurant I'd have a bloody great big cheesy grin all over my face too.
I'm going to a wedding this weekend near Loch Lomond and there will be LOTS of whisky flowing - you are right though, it does make you a bit crazy. It's like tequila in that it has a distinctive hangover all of its own...
