QuoteIf we don\'t get anything new for a while I\'m cool with that. I would like to think that he is chillin with friends and fam, recharging his batteries and relaxing, he does have a personal life besides making music.He gives sooooo much and is very prolific. I liked both FF and NIASS, when I hear people complain about those 2 albums I think they must not understand how the "artists brain" works. Expression of one\'s self comes in many forms and needs many outlets, if you don\'t get it then it is your loss or maybe it just wasn\'t meant for you.Suprises are what makes life exciting to me, and I am sure big B has a few left in his bucket for us. Just be patient and it will come, if it takes years then so be it. I get sad that some fans express that they want more albums or they want something specific like Giant Robot or another Colma, complain about touring with the ipod - the man seems to continually move forward not backwards so just hang on and enjoy the ride. You can get off at any time, no one is forcing you to stay on. We are all blessed to have his music not entitled and I know most of us understand that. I just don\'t like seeing the "give me, give me" attitude some fans have and it is a sad commentary about how many spoiled kids don\'t realize how lucky they are. Be grateful you don\'t live in a war torn country like Iraq or Iran or that 200,000 people in your country didn\'t just die from a earthquake - those people have REAL problems, not having a big B concert or new album doesn\'t even register. OK enough of the buzzkill - Rock on everyone!!!EDIT: beau, this was not directed at you or anyone else specific. I just read stuff here, there and at other boards that make me upset when people demand more of big B. As an artist and friend of many artists this opinion in me has been built over many years, I\'m sure the people I offend with this post (if any) are all great fans and by no means do I imply that I or others who liked the last 2 albums are better fans. We are all on the rollercoaster together.
QuoteI don\'t know why people hated him using an iPod. I mean, perhaps there were certain circumstances where he couldn\'t have a bassist and drummer backing him whom he knows he can trust. Maybe he just wants to have some fun on his own and liberate himself a little bit more by doing more sampling, which is in some ways like a DJ, but he does this while he\'s busy playing guitar. Sometimes people want to try different things. I\'m not trying to particularly bash on anyone here, but if someone is trying something different, especially Buckethead, I have always embraced whatever they have done as I am sure he wants to try new things. Sure they may not be the most incredible things of all time, but I think in their own right they are definitely working on great ideas and explorations in both sound and style.
QuoteCould this drought be because of Big B taking time to work on the infamous "Buckethead Plays Disney" album?
