Dogstar features lead vocalist Bret Domrose on guitar, Keanu Reeves on bass, and Rob Mailhouse on drums. They've played to sold-out concerts and have received critical acclaim for their music. !Please join me in giving Dogstar a huge welcome! I've been listening to your CD, "Happy Ending" and just love it.
Dogstar: Hi There!!

MiCi: I've been listening to your CD, "Happy Ending" and just love it. How has the initial response been now that it is out as a single?

Dogstar: We like Dallas, we'll be back soon!!
MiCi: From alcyone7485: who wanted 'Superstar' and what did the other 2 think when they heard the orginal.
Dogstar: Whoops bounced off ;) sorry What a great song...We all thought it was great...we all had different relationships to the song...similar and different...the consciousness of how we heard it was different. We all collectively heard it when we started to play it live we all really enjoyed it and the audience really enjoyed it so we started playing it.
