seriously dudes. i was at practice listening to music waiting for it start and my friend starts listening with me and i was listening to soothsayer(one of the greatest songs ever). he said he never heard it before but thought it was awesome. he asked "who is it" and i say "buckethead". all of a sudden his attitude toward the song totally changes and thinks it sucks. i have seen this a lot, why don't people take him seriously? is because of the mask or because most people are douchebags?

People have certain stereotypes towards unique genres and artists in music, usually.

You just have to put up with them.

Because he's too good at everything. He makes all sorts of awesome music, and people just don't like that for some reason. Jealousy is what it is.

I can't believe you can't understand why nobody takes a guy with a bucket on his head seriously.
#16
A lot of people can't look past the fact that he wears a bucket on his head, so people take him as a joke and don't think he cares about music. So basically, people are ignorant.
#18
He could easily be taken seriously if he took off the fuckin' bucket. He doesn't want to be taken seriously.

Eh, He's an Amazing Guitarist, But Some People think he's a little wierd.
Plus, Soothsayer sucks.....

Dude! You are ridiculous! Soothsayer just might be one of the greatest songs I've ever heard, PERIOD! Nothing since listening to Crazy Train for the first time has inspired me to make music more then that single song.

you have to respect people's musical tastes
not every1 will like the same music as you, and YOU have to deal with it
you can't force people to like certain music
aside from that he is being a dousche for initally liking it and then disliking it after you mentionied it was buckethead

100% This.
Your opinion is just that, YOUR opinion. It doesn't make you right. It doesn't make you better. It doesn't make you god. Everyone has their own view and that view is neither right or wrong.

Ignorance destroys music.

Soothsayer Sucks.....
Period.
It's my Opinion, so Back the hell off.
You may think it's a great song, But i PERSONALLY think it's crap.

Yes.

Just be thankful he wears a bucket on his head. He could be as ugly as Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Dear diary.

Today I stuffed some dolls full of dead rats I put in the blender.

I'm wondering if, maybe, there really is something wrong with me.

After much arguing I finally got my mom to listen to "Whitewash" from Colma. She enjoyed it, but still didn't want to listen to the rest of the CD.

Too many people are narrow minded.

Somewhere between writing the Power Rangers theme song and mixing one of Viggo Mortenson's music albums xD

Secretly, I think he's actually Slash. Only the colonel recruits him for various secret purposes.

i dont like him because it doesnt seem like he puts much soul into his solos
plus the whole story about him is just stupid
i think even less of him if he came up with the whole thing
but i do think he would be credited more if he didnt look like such and idiot

Your opinion is wrong.

I think the only reason he wears a bucket on his head is so that his identity can be kept secret, so that when he walks down the street, he doesn't have hordes of fans running up to him.
