Bonebrake is the only founding member of X from California (the other three are from Illinois), having grown up in the San Fernando Valley. Bonebrake also performed with two of the band's side projects: the country/folk music/punk band the Knitters (with his bandmates John Doe and Exene Cervenka), and Auntie Christ (with Cervenka).

While a member of X, Bonebrake briefly guested as the drummer for the Germs, and during 1981, he and Doe served as members of the Flesh Eaters, performing on that band's second album, A Minute to Pray, a Second to Die.

In 2010, Bonebrake joined the Rancid side project Devil's Brigade.

In 2013, Bonebrake joined the World Takes, helmed by Stephen Maglio. The band released an album, Love Songs for eX's, and toured with the Meat Puppets.

Although most of his work has been within the punk genre, Bonebrake heads two jazz ensembles: the Bonebrake Syncopators, who play classical jazz, and the Afro-Cuban and Latin-inspired Orchestra Superstring. Bonebrake has also performed as timpanist with the Palisades Symphony.
