for anyone wanting to explore through the literal ocean of pike releases, but not knowing where to start/which release to listen to next (like me), http://decino.nl/?p=pike-suggester is an absolute lifesaver. it adds tags to every pike release based on its musical style which you can filter, and has preview/sample clips of each album, so you know what kind of music you'd be getting into. additionally, if you're interested in listening to stuff that's similar to Buckethead's more technical/shreddy stuff, i recommend checking out instrumental math/technical metal artists like Animals as Leaders, Scale the Summit, Sithu Aye, CHON & Miroist; they were my go to artists for awesome guitar composition & playing before i discovered the infinite expanses of Bucketheadland
gee whiz, and i thought Aphex Twin had a discography size that couldn't be contested! Buckethead is nothing short of a grand wizard when it comes to music, there's so much fantastic stuff in so many different styles. to delve into Buckethead is a life journey, i swear this man has released more pikes in 2015 than he has had bowel movements
Amazing seeing him again. Bummed he stuck to his classic set, but I got over it pretty quick. Got to give him a gift I made for him, very awesome experience. He did also end his set with Coupon, the new one.
"Pikes after #234 Coupon are all renamed versions of old unnamed ones, such as Pike 18, Pike 91 .. But others are not listed yet, such as Pike 13." Have renamed Pikes their tracks renamed as well or is it just the Pike name?
I'll be damned, Bucket actually updated the Tour page on his bucketheadland site; no dates listed yet, but simply updating it after it's stayed the same for 3+ years is a great sign he's coming back to be among the living
