the offer to sit in with The Vibemerchants always stands, Reeves
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) -- Actor Keanu Reeves fans know that he has often moonlighted as a rock star with bands like Dogstar and Becky.

But, at a press conference for "Constantine," the actor says his band days are pretty much over.

"I played with them for about a year," Reeves says about the band called Becky. "But they wanted to get some record deals and go on tour and I can't do that, so I bowed out."

Reeves, who used to sing and play bass guitar for the much-maligned Dogstar, says that band isn't touring anymore. When the press corps said, "ahh" in response, he sarcastically said, "Right, thanks."

Reeves says he didn't get to play on the set of "Constantine" with singer and Bush guitarist Gavin Rossdale (who plays his nemesis in the film noir supernatural thriller). "He was working on his album then that I believe that he's almost finished," Reeves says. "We spoke a little bit about that."

"Constantine" opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, Feb. 18.

This depresses me a little bit. I just can't imagine never having the chance again to watch him rock that bass.

"Once a bass player, always a bass player" is what I always say. I predict he'll play again...someday ;-)

It is a little sad but I can see that it would be impossible to maintain a band schedual with his preferance for acting. Beckyband never really got a hold on me as I am on the East coast & there was no CD.
Heck I'll always enjoy my Dogstar collection (they WERE getting a little too pop oriented to suit me however)
I would like to hear more from Brett and its still Rob's drum pounding my speakers in the car and that wont change for me!

maybe his circumstances changed a bit and he can't afford to sit in as much as he used to... he still love and wants to...

Now that I think about it: Our little Keanu's growing up. Did anyone see the picture with his mother? I melted.
