After joining up in 2015, MOTORBONE has risen to the top of the hard rock food chain in Hollywood, CA. Led by the most sonic, boisterous, in-your-face, yet delightfully soothing vocalist in California, Josh Tripp, formerly of WarDog and SuicideJones, MOTORBONE outshines the bands they perform with. Most recently at the 'World Famous' Whisky A Go Go, Puddle of Mudd closed the show for them! With their "take no prisoners" approach, Josh and the guys bring more and more intensity every time they hit the stage.
The rhythm section is led by Keith Morgan, most notably from the band, Handsome Devil. He pounds the skins harder than anyone in the industry. You can hear Keith playing drums from miles away. Dan Clout locks down the rhythms with his thunderous bass. From the intro of "Crawl," to the last note of their favorite CRUE song, these two lay the foundation that has become MOTORBONE's signature sound.
Dick Delnevo rounds out the group with his ripping leads and thick rhythms on guitar. Previously a drummer with Josh in an earlier band, (back when it was cool for both of them to have long hair!), Dick transitioned to guitar and hasn't looked back.
According to Music Connection magazine, "this is a band that plays the way rock bands used to play… when they had some street cred." MOTORBONE continues to push forward, dominating more venues, and writing more music.
MOTORBONE released their debut EP, 'Come Out and Play' on August 24, 2018. The guys have been hard at work, writing to have new material for you in 2021. Be on the lookout for more updates as they keep pushing the limits of the Hollywood strip and beyond.
