Signed to Warner Bros. in 1990, Rhino Bucket’s self-titled debut yielded two singles “One Night Stand” and “Blood on the Cross,” which heaved them to the Billboard Top 40 singles chart and made them regulars on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball. “Get Used to It”, 1992’s follow up, was recorded by legendary producer Terry Manning (Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top) and spawned the single “Ride with Yourself,” which landed on the soundtrack to the blockbuster film Wayne’s World.
In 1993 drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio) joined the group for the recording of their third album, 1994’s “Pain”. This lineup toured relentlessly until 1995 when the band took what turned out to be an extended hiatus. Never ones to say die, a one-off sold-out reunion gig in 2000 inspired singer/guitarist Georg Dolivo and bassist Reeve Downes to reform with original drummer Liam Jason and KIX guitarist Brian "Damage" Forsythe.
The band hit the L.A. clubs and found their reputation had grown substantially, gaining the attention of hip indie label Acetate Records. This resulted in 2006's "And Then It Got Ugly” which produced the single “Welcome to Hell”, featured in the Oscar winning film “The Wrestler”. Simon Wright returned to the fold at 2007’s Rocklahoma festival and subsequently appears on 2009's "The Hardest Town" album.
In 2010 Rhino Bucket made their first European appearance in nearly 15 years with a 45-date tour covering 14 countries. The start of 2011 saw an even more extensive tour of Europe in support of “Who’s Got Mine”, the bands third release for the Acetate imprint. The new album was recorded in Hollywood at Grandmaster Recorders by producer Doug Boehm. The Bucket will continue to stay on the road for the remainder of 2011, including another European tour in June, an appearance at Sweden Rock, and multiple tours of North America. Catch this definitive line up of the band featuring Georg Dolivo, Reeve Downes, Brian Forsythe (KIX), and Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO, UFO).
