John Wick

Keanu Reeves is the man with the nicest image possible of an actor in this world. The humbleness and generosity that the actor has showcased to the people attest to the above statement. Even though the nicest actor, he had a negative experience once when he was booed off the stage during his career’s early days.

The actor seemed to recall a moment when the fans said “f**k you, you suck” before hurling beer cans at the actor.

When Keanu Reeves Was Booed Off The Stage

The John Wick actor tuned into GQ to tell the tale of a time when he was booed off of the stage by fans. It is indeed hard to imagine the nicest man on the planet being abused by fans and hurled beer cans at, but the unfortunate event indeed took place in the early 1990s.

The Constantine actor along with Robert Mailhouse formed a band by the name of Dogstar. The band, being formed in the early 90s went on to perform at various locations, one of which is the infamous city of Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Metal Fest, during the 1990s, was in its pure form as the fans were going wild by the music. Keanu Reeve’s band, however, didn’t sit much with the concert.

     “I guess it would have helped if our band was better.”

The Speed actor stated before proceeding to give an elaboration on the event when his band was hurled by beer cans.

“We were like, ‘They hate us. What are we doing here? What can we do? Let’s do the Grateful Dead cover. They were just like, F**k you, you suck. I had the biggest grin on my face, man.”

Keanu Reeves said the statements with a chuckle and admitted that his band was indeed terrible.

“We’re terrible. We’ve played about ten times now and though we’re getting better, we play better in a garage. But I say, better to regret something that you have done than regret something you haven’t done,”

The band performed in 1999 months after the release of The Matrix which shot Keanu Reeves’s fame to the heights. This made the news as the fans once again had a negative reception for the band. The Dogstar band, which was active from the early 90s to the 2000s, performed for the last time in the October of 2002.
