Title: Ultimate Buckethead Touring Band
Post by: Silverado on January 15, 2011, 02:11:59 pm

Greetings all in Bucketheadland,  I am a new poster at the forum but no stanger to TDRS!  If everyone had the opportunity to create an all-star band line-up to join Big B on tour...hopefully in support the new LE holiday CD.. who would you like to see?  Since I been playing the new disc non-stop, I can\'t get the idea of a tour for this music out of my head!  I have a dream of seeing:

Buckethead-Guitar
Travis Dickerson-Keyboards
Billy Sheehan-Bass
Terry Bozzio-Drums
Bill Moseley-Vocals

Much as I like the people you mention Silverado I think that Buckethead would rather play with people he\'s comfortable with, ie: people who he\'s played with in the past.

So, to that end, here\'s my choice(s):
Buckethead: lead guitar (Obviously! LOL!)
Mirv: rhythm guitar
Travis: keys
Butthouse: bass (or Bootsy, but I\'d rather see House!)
Brain: drums. (this is a "no Brainer" - horrible pun!)

If there has to be vocals (I\'m good either way) I would go with Bootsy and/or maybe Maximum Bob and/or cameo appearances, like for instance Patton (dreamy!) maybe Serj, and some of the other vocalists from Enter The Chicken.

This would be the traveling road-show of the Century.
More fun would be had by all than a truckload of barrels of monkeys.

I can dream...

smooches,

Definitely a fantastic dream.  I love the idea of cameo\'s..the more the merrier Pigface type show with different vocalists would be an awesome twist from what he\'s done in the past.  Keeping the usual suspects as the main band!  That would only happen in my dreams!!

Hmm noone has given any love to Neil Peart so I would have to sayyyyyyy

Buckethead - guitar, nunchaku
Dave Grohl - Whatever he wants because he is super talented, he even plays a mean triangle.
Neil Peart - Drums
John Paul Jones - Like stumpleganger, JPJ is super underrated, not to mention he has the same birthday as me.
 ;D
Paul Gilbert - Gotta have some epic guitar battles and facemelting solos with PG and Buckethead, both have similar playing styles but make it their own.

Thanks for mentioning Neil, T-dog.  The idea came through my mind as "Pythagorean Sled cruises Aristotle\'s 13th book of Metaphysics."

not the ultimate touring band but the ultimate show for me would be something like this:

An art showing of Buckethead\'s latest works.
First set - Travis, Ramy & Big B.
Intermission: headcheese and slaw is served as we all buy up Big B\'s art.
2nd set - Monti (on bass), Brain & Big B.
 btw - did I mention this is an exclusive show for TDRS members only  ;D

I can dream, right?!

Les Claypool - Bass, whamola, peck and tear portions

Travis Dickerson - Keys, slunk wrangling
Pinchface - Drums, cadaver set-up

1977 era Kiss, just add Bucket as a fifth. Open the cover to Alive 2 and put BH right in the middle. That would be a visual show. Not sure what BH would do with Cold Gin, but would love to hear it. As long as we are dreaming put Metallica 86 and the Ramones 79 as the openers.

Buckethead & iPod backing track.

I don\'t think his live shows ever came together better then when he started doing this.
