add: The stinking festering carcass that passes as KISS.

The ongoing VH saga.

Death metal or any vocalist to be exact that roars like that. That is NOT singing. It sounds like sh!t because it is.

Cover bands? I think you meant Tribute bands,no?

Gene $immons.

Electronica/rap ad nauseum....

Gigs that get double booked.

Record companies who say they have their artists best intentions at heart re. them losing money when it comes to illegal downloads. The real pirates are the FRC-fat rich c*nts.

On & on it goes.

It's fashionable and trendy.

Yup.

 

Buckethead was a nobody in the 80's. The hate started in 2006...look on the antibuckethead website smartone.

 

"Here's how it all came about:

 

When I first encountered Buckethead, I'd been an editor for Guitar Player magazine for a decade. That was 1988, and I'd already done cover stories on Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, The Edge, and many others. But nothing ­ nothing ­ had prepared me for what I was about to hear when a receptionist said, "Some kid and his parents just dropped off a demo for you."

 

I popped in the cassette, hit play, and my jaw dropped. That kid was Buckethead, then still a teenager, and his music displayed unsurpassed imagination and stunning technique. I rushed to the restaurant where Buckethead and his folks were having lunch and encouraged him to make the most of his talent."

4 years later, he got a record deal in Japan to release his first solo album including songs from the demo tape. (Japanese people enjoy it because they are smart). The album has been in print ever since (17 years), but now it might be out of print because everyone in Japan probably owns it by now. He wasn't a nobody back then. He also didn't like having a large fangroup. He liked being underground and having a stronger connection with his fans. There weren't haters back then. People were amazed after discovering him.

 

The OP just doesn't like slap bassists because Buckethead is one.
