does anyone of you fine young folks have information about this guitar ? (when and how many were built..) a friend got one, I think it´s the MIII deluxe maple/walnut. but we couldnt find much info on the net. so I asked at gibson.com but they only said the production had been discontinued. any info is very welcome thanks. d6
-and I couldn´t find buckethead on their artist list - though I think he likes his white one very much...
while talking on the "fav. movie" topic this came to my mind. just post your favourite quotes! - (inspired by our very own mr. dirtface.) there is a "buckethead - quotes" topic on buckethead.tk and all - but I couldn´t resist.

It\'s divided into 4 sections, The Creeps Nov. 1990 Show at the Cactus Club, the soundcheck for the same gig, Bucket in The Bsement w/Jas, and Bucket playing in the backyard.
I have a newfound respect for the Deli Creeps. This footage is different than Secret Recipe, in that you can size up right away what the Creeps were about: Buckethead. Maximum Bob is really a sort of twisted MC, kind of narrating Bucket\'s solos and injecting comments throughout the gig. I think he actually sings on one song, which of course is injected heavily w/Bucket\'s playing. Pinchface was fun to watch, he plays a king of crazed character back there on the drums, his hairdo was like some kind of mullet-fro-hilarious. This is a very interesting gig to watch, I found myself staying with it all the way through ( by the way, the 8mm to DVD conversion came out great). An amazing event to watch, knowing what\'s coming up ahead in Bucket\'s career-those 12 people at the gig might not have had a clue that they were part of something historic.....
Soundcheck for the same gig. Bucket just rips, standing off to the side. At some points you think you can see his face-it is blurred out for the most part, however in one segment near the end you can actually kind of catch a side-shot of Bucket\'s profile, it\'s obscured by his hair, but you can almost make him out. A real treat to watch.
Bucket hanging out with Jas Obrecht in Jas\'s basement, creating goofy video with sound effects. Jas is a pretty funny guy to watch as well, looks like they really had a lot of fun. Bucket is wearing a bizarre see-through mask, you can catch his eyes quite a bit in this one, when he turns sideways to pound on the keyboards you can catch his profile-at one point he pulls down the mask to expose the top half of his face-another teaser. At the end of this clip, they hold up a Giant Robot poster as Bucket plays a few notes from same.
The backyard family gig is a trip to watch. He puts on a white KFC-type bucket w/his now trademark mask and pops out of the kitchen for a little show for family and bots. This is not Bucket unplugged, however, as he plugs into a little amp and cranks out there on a little chair in front of the beer coolers. He ran through his fully-loaded bag of tricks, something very few if any of us will ever see and hear at a backyard BBQ. He did his 2-hand tapping, blistering shreds, some funky popping stuff like he does on bass, and songs we have heard in his current gigs like When You Wish Upon A Star, Halloween movie theme song, and the now famous Hog Bitch Stomp. He even played the theme from the Exorcist. He was wrapping up when I think I heard "Play Star Wars little brother, I mean Buckethead" and of course he rips into that. I was watching this with my jaw hanging-it\'s just amazing work. At the end of the little show, the camera pans around the yard , showing the faces of the family members and bots-of course all smiling.
hello bots, living in austria without a credit card means : NO inbred mountain NO deli creeps and I dont want to support the ebay insanity thats going on right now; maybe there is a compassionate soul out there who wants to trade.
I offer my most beloved
bucketheadland ( 2 cd´s , not sealed but in mint condition) bernie worrell - pieces of woo ( sealed)
for "inbred mountain" and "dawn of the deli creeps"
while listening to heny kaiser I thought of the guitar he gave to bucket; and then what has happened? didn´t buckethead give it away ? a contest? can we expect a talented young person open for the man someday ?
