Quote"I love Buckethead but I am getting tired of always hearing the same songs. I have been going to shows for well over a decade now and the setlist has been basically the same during that whole time. It is time for Buckethead to start incorporating some of his new stuff in his live shows." Explain to me how that is drivel. None of it is false and none of it is offensive unless you are extremely sensative to anything that could possibly be taken as a criticism of Buckethead.What is drivel is you acting like me being able to go to shows over the years is some blessing from Buckethead. It wasn\'t an accident or a blessing from Buckethead that allowed me to see the shows; I paid for the tickets. It is too bad that others have not been able to go to shows but has nothing to do with me wanting to see something different at one of the shows. His performances have gotten better over the years but his setlist has not greatly changed. You say that you have never seen the exact same setlist, but I have never seen one that is more than 25% different. There are probably 30 or fewer tacks that I could list from which over 75% of the setlist will come. For an artist with over a thousand tracks that is very limited. I\'d like to see some of the other tracks make it into the show. I understand that a lot of what he releases on CD cannot be done adequately live, but there are still a ton of tracks he could do that he never does. I\'d like to see some of them.The comment about you not coming to the board was in response to your "don\'t go if you don\'t like it" statement. The same holds for not liking my opinions. Don\'t come here if you don\'t like them. If you don\'t like this response, then maybe you should re-examine yours.Honestly, you sound like a child who feels threatened when anyone states anything that could possibly be taken as negative about Buckethead. Rest assured, I am not challenging him. I love his music and greatly appreciate what he does for the fans. Again, I would simply like to hear more of his music than he seems willing to do live. I do not see why this is such an offensive position to you.

QuoteActually, you did not state it as a wish. it was more like a complaint and a demand. That\'s what bugs me. Your free to express your opinion anywhere and anytime you want, unles of course you expect noone with their own opinion to respond and counter. You are not free to let drivel fall from your gaping mouth without retort.Another point I\'d like to counter is that the shows are the same. Of the 10 I\'ve been to the set list has never been exactly repeated, and I have seen a ton of variety in what he chooses to play and how. As for not coming to this board, not gonna happen. I was here first. You can stop coming if you cant take a little critism. There are literally hundreds of thousands of people who have not had the pleasure of seeing BH even once, and you have the gaul to complain and ask for more when as you said you\'ve seen him more then 10 times.
QuoteStumpdangler! I can see my camera in your vids! I LOVE that Pinchy said "oh sure we have the Tonkas in stock" I guess he saw my shirt?! WTF did he say after that "and they\'re live pickle" I can\'t quite understand that last part.Did you say hi to me (& sign my shirt?) I think I met (only?!) 3 bots.What a GREAT show! Seven Laws Of Woo was a nice surprise!Concert experience of a lifetime.
QuoteI am with stumpdangler on this one. It would be great to see more variety in Bucket\'s live sets. I enjoyed the show too, I guess, but it was definitely the worst of the five Bucket shows that I have seen so far. -After the first band ended, it was an hour and ten minutes before Bucket & Co. took the stage. Considering that there was virtually nothing for the techs/crew to set up, that was way too long. I don\'t think I\'ve ever experienced a longer gap between sets at any show I\'ve attended (which is a lot). -Practically no merch, only It\'s Alive, for $13. Typically there are multiple shirts and a huge catalog of CDs -- talking like 10-12 minimum. -Bucket played a TON of licks in the wrong key. Highly distracting, and just plain didn\'t sound good. Overall, he didn\'t seem nearly as into it as any of the other times I\'ve seen him, kinda like he was a little burned out almost, which is not good considering the tour is just getting underway. -No encore. This was the first Bucket show I\'d ever seen where he was the headliner, and there was no encore. I\'m not even going to bother looking for a recording. I am disappointed, all told. During, and for a good 1-2 weeks after seeing the other shows in years gone by, I have been left in complete ecstasy and awe. Not this time. Sorry, bots. I didn\'t feel it, and I don\'t think Big B did either. But before I forget, nice to meet you at last, Phydeaux! I\'m glad you and everyone else had a great time.
Quotewell when you look closely to set list you can see that the "newer" song he plays is Siege Engine from Albino Slug in 2008. Since then he has released 10 albums !! (counting It\'s Alive & Empty Space) ; so I\'m sorry but I will to agree with slunkatron, no offense, his show are still great but he could just add fresh stuff.
QuoteLet me guess...Phydeaux_3 = you have three dogs?
