    Buckethead apparently not doing well

    So, after a long absence in my music rotation, I threw on Giant Robot, and am still floored by how great it is. I looked up his website, and found a weird message...

    Welcome to Bucketheadland

    It would appear as though he's not in the best of health right now. Here's a summary from his wiki page:

    2010: Break for Illness

    On February 5, 2010 Buckethead released an album called Shadows Between the Sky and later that month, Gibson released the Buckethead Signature Les Paul.

    On April 29, 2010, Buckethead's website was updated[37] with a picture with the message "Greetings from Bucketheadland... Buckethead wants you to know he appreciates your support all these years, it means so much to him. Buckethead is having some animatronic parts replaced, Slip Disc snuck into the park and caused some mayhem." The reference to Slip Disc is a reference to a Bucketheadland nemesis found on the Bucketheadland album.

    In May, the funk bassist Bootsy Collins tweeted some updates[38] on Buckethead's situation along with answering a couple questions some fans had regarding the downtime. The messages are, "Okay funkateer's I Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my best friend Buckethead, say a prayer for his speedy recovery, he's doing better!" Along with, "Been going though some skeletorial Pain that has set him back a few notches but with yalls support he will bounce back." And finally, "The Road will beat you down even when you take care of your self, Pain thoughout his body, Doc don't know yet what it is!".

    Regarding Buckethead’s recovery, Collins later tweeted: “Yeah Bucketbots! I talked to Buckethead today he wants to thank everybody for the prayers, hope in 3 wks he be in "Boot-Cave"”. Then, on June 7, 2010 Collins tweeted yet another update about Buckethead's current condition via his Twitter account "Got message from Buckethead, he's doing much better, he said he miss everybody's Slaugther-House but he will be back from Bucketland". On June 11th Bootsy tweeted "Patti Just spoke with Buckethead he is up and playing his guitar,I think Bucket pushed himself too hard on our last attempt.Prayers are working."

    Back issues?

    Sounds like he's feeling better, though.

    Maybe he had a bad case of salmonella poisoning.
