To put it simply, Rhino Bucket sound exactly like Bon Scott-era AC/DC, something for which the band makes no apologies. Furthermore, what could easily be passed off as mere plagiarism becomes instead a celebration of the original masterpiece thanks to Rhino Bucket's bold-faced indifference and oftentimes fantastic songs. They also deserve some credit for coming up with one of the most original and bizarre names in rock history.
Formed in Van Nuys, California in 1987 by Finnish-born transplant Georg Dolivo (Bon Scott-cloned vocals and guitar), lead guitarist Greg Fields, bassist Reeve Downes, and drummer Liam Jason, Rhino Bucket perfectly replicated AC/DC's raw, three-chord boogie to perfection on their self-titled debut album. After a number of milestones like recruiting actual AC/DC drummer Simon Wright and ex-Kix Brian Forsythe, being signed to Reprise, landing a placement in films "Wayne's World" and "The Wrestler", the band had seen a rollercoaster of a career, including a hiatus.
In the new millennium, they have put out a handful of rockin LP's, of which the following are available for licensing, courtesy of Acetate Records: Who's Got Mine?, The Last Real Rock and Roll, The Hardest Town, Pain & Suffering, and And Then It Got Ugly.
