So there are several threads we talk about music in, but here I wanna talk about a specific artist - Buckethead. Yeah. The guy who wears a KFC bucket and a Michael Myers mask and somehow happens to be one of the most insanely talented guitarists on the planet. And prolific. My god, prolific. Over 300 albums, not to mention other solo works and appearances with other musicians. This guy is crazy. In a very, very good way. I love Buckethead's stuff. He's one of my top five favorite artists.
It might seem surprising that I'd start a Buckethead thread before a Maiden one, but I honestly think you guys might appreciate him a little more. When I say "you guys" I don't mean people like @LittleJerry92 (though if he hasn't heard him he needs to). I mean more of the non-metal fans here. Why do I think this? Simply because Big B isn't really metal. He's actually got a finger in several genres - metal, rock, alt, electronic, etc. And most of his stuff is instrumental. When I say most, I mean that there's only 1 album he's every released, if I recall correctly, to feature vocals. The rest might have some soundbits but no actual singing. Hence, with so many genres and albums to choose from, and no potentially bad vocals to listen to, not to mention his quirks which Muppet fans in particular would likely enjoy, I honestly think he'd be something you guys would like.
So anyways, I'm not too far into his discography, relatively, but I thought I'd post this just the same. If anyone's interested in him and need some pointers - or if you've already heard his music and wanna have a chat with Old Thunder here, let's get this show on the road.
