Should he stay not widely known to music, or should he become part of mainstream?

I say stay not widely known. he don't sell out this way.

Mainstream fans will think



just because they're not used to weird people.


That said, I wouldn't mind if he were a bit more famous than he is now. Then again, he was in Guns N' Roses at one point...
#7
He likes HIS music, so its all good. I hope he stays this way, and doesnt do it for marketing like most bands today.

This is exactly why there are no mainstream fans.

These idiots should all listen to Colma and Electric Tears though, that'd shut them up about the "OMGWTFONLYSHREDNOEMOTIONZ!" bull.

Everyone has been in Guns N' Roses at one point. Hell, you've probably been in Guns N' Roses at some point.

EDIT:

Also, this.

People accept Lady Gaga and she's wierd as ****.
If BH became more mainstream, but didn't change his style of playing, I'd still like him.

I think if bucket honestly wanted to be in the mainstream he would. Kinda how John 5 plays for anyone and everyone he can possibly work with and adjusts his style accordingly. Buckethead only seems to truly do what interests him like Praxis, Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains, and GNR of course. I dont really see buckethead infiltrating the mainstream again, GNR and Guitar Hero were for publicity purposes i guess.

Buckethead doesn't seem the mainstream type, I think he's right where he wants to be

Buckethead is too weird to be mainstream. There is like, one picture of him on the internet without the mask on. And thats like black and white.

That dedication sounds a bit too strong to be killed by money.

I don't think anyone who wears a KFC bucket on his head and insists he was raised in a chicken coop ever planned on going into mainstream.

You have a point. Everyone's been fired by Axl Rose at one point during their lives.

yes. when i listened to the electric tears album. i swear i could have cried. so beautiful. lots of emotion. i was pretty much speechless.
#18
The whole point of buckethead is that he wears a mask and a KFC bucket on his head because he believes that it's not the image that matters but the music.

Because of this he has ended up writing some of the most beautiful music i know.

That is why most of us love him and also why we have no reason to fear that he will become mainstream.
#19
Did you know he was almost playing for Ozzy, but because he showed up to rehearsal with his bucket on, and then a giant UFO hat on Ozzy told him to GTFO.
#20
He's in a very good position where he's at right now. If he were to hit mainstream i doubt a dedicated person like him would change. Personally i love the guys music, and it has gotten him accomplished to a point of which i think he is just resting on a platform.

His could be mainstream, yes. but i think making that transition would be utterly pointless at the most.

TS, are you saying that popular bands have sold out just because they have a large fan base? As for Buckethead, he should stay where he wants to be.

I meant by them changing their style to please the new people.

buckethead doesn't NEED to please anyone, but he pleases his true fans. probably why he won't go mainstream
#24
hes definitely at a good spot now, he is big but not too big to be noticed by everything he does.
