The band formed in 2003 between Trieste and Liverpool by singer-guitarist Max Scherbi. Today he is accompanied by: Michela Grilli on backing vocals, Gianpiero de Candia on bass and backing vocals and Federico Gullo on drums.
The Rideouts’ sound digs deep into the british-american bands of the Sixties. Pop, rock, blues and garage rock with a bit of psychedelia are the main genres while The Beatles, Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin are the main influences.
BBC’s Richard Oliff (presenter, writer, journalist, producer who had worked over the years with artists such as Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney), fan of The Rideouts, has compared them to Eric Clapton and The Beatles.
The Rideouts have nothing to envy other British or American bands, their sound is international, well finished, and are second to none. They have received many positive reviews in fact: from the mentioned Oliff to the prestigious NME, which hosts a couple of Rideouts’ videos on its website.
