Last night, Buckethead brought his spring tour out to the famed Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA, delivering music that spans the prolific artist’s lengthy career. Most well known for his guitar playing (or is he most well known for the KFC bucket?), a video captured from the performance shows Buckethead let loose, by himself, on the bass.It’s no surprise that Buckethead is such a talented bassist, as his playing technique is impeccable on the guitar. Couple that with his unbelievable body of work recording with various instruments in the studio, and you have a undeniable recipe for a great solo. After he rocks the bass, Buckethead picks up the guitar and lets loose for a soaring instrumental.Watch the magic from last night’s show below, courtesy of Jim Croy.
UW defenseman Justin Schultz leads the Badgers with 34 points, one of which came earlier against Michigan Tech Oct. 30. The Huskies shocked many early this season with an undefeated record, but after facing Wisconsin, they have gone without a victory.[/media-credit]The last time Michigan Tech and Wisconsin met, the Huskies were undefeated at 3-0-2. It was a surprising start for a team that went 5-30-1 the season before.Then, history caught up with head coach Jamie Russell’s squad.Wisconsin won both its games against Michigan Tech, taking 5-2 and 4-1 decisions en route to a series sweep.Since then, MTU is 0-16-1. The Huskies haven’t won a game since October and sit at a record that’s more par for the course in Houghton – 3-18-3.Meanwhile, the Badgers have caught fire, winners of 10 of their last 11. No. 8 Wisconsin sits at 17-8-3 and in fifth place in the WCHA, with 20 points.Right now, though, the focus for Wisconsin is on the trip to the Upper Peninsula and a continuation of the team’s winning ways.“They are a big team and I think on a big sheet of ice, with our abilities it minimizes it to some degree,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said. “I think going on a small sheet, it maximizes their ability to take away time and space. We’ll practice on a small sheet all week this week and having played, not this past weekend, but the weekend before, on a small sheet in Duluth should help us prepare for playing against them.”Wisconsin’s last experience on a small sheet of ice came with mixed results – the Badgers split a series in Duluth with the offensively skilled Bulldogs, and although they came up with a 3-2 win in game two, they watched a 3-0 lead slip away late in the third period.However, as Eaves mentioned, the issue with the Huskies will be size, rather than skill.19 players on the MTU roster are at least six feet tall, as opposed to 11 for UW. Even more impressively, five players are 6-foot-4 or taller, including forwards Daniel Holmberg and leading scorer Milos Gordic (11-6-17).Wisconsin maxes out at 6-foot-3, in forwards Sean Dolan and Gavin Hartzog. However, any size advantage the Huskies have held hasn’t helped in terms of game results.Michigan Tech is dead last in the WCHA in scoring defense (4.38 goals allowed per game) and second to last in scoring offense, putting in just 2.29 goals per game. The Huskies have been shut out in three consecutive games and have scored three goals or more in a game just three times since the beginning of December.Wisconsin’s nation-leading scoring defense (2.04 goals allowed per game) doesn’t bode well for Michigan Tech, nor does the Badgers’ 3.39 goals scored per game.MTU fares slightly better on the power play, sitting middle of the pack in the conference with a 20-percent conversion rate. Wisconsin leads the WCHA with a 25.7-percent mark.The success the Badgers have with the man-advantage could be an issue for the Huskies, who are next-to-last in penalty killing, with just a 74.2-percent mark.But despite the struggles MTU is mired in – both this season and in past seasons – Eaves is making sure his team is ready to compete.“You know, it’s trying to turn around a big ship in the middle of the ocean. Sometimes it takes time,” Eaves said of Russell and the Huskies. “And I know for one thing, they’re a wounded animal right now, and they’re going, they’re going to give us everything we have. And if we sit back at all, we’re going to have our hat handed to us.”

Kodrić lined up on the grid for Sunday’s race in 11th place and after making a good start ran wide in turn three and was forced to return to the pits to have grass removed from the front radiator. He rejoined the race still on the lead lap but over a minute and a half behind the leading cars. With no safety car to bunch up the field there was little to be done in the hour long race except show the potential pace of the car.Sandy Stuvik.Kodrić was soon one of the fastest men on the track and quickly caught and passed the GT4 cars as he fought to close up on the GT3 pack. On lap fifteen he pitted to hand the Lamborghini over to Stuvik who continued to push hard as he reeled in the back of the pack. When the chequered flag came out the Thai driver had come back up to 16th place overall, 7th in the Silver Cup. The points earned in both races have left the drivers in 5th place in the Silver Cup standings.The next race will be a special one for Stuvik as it will take place in his home country, at the Buriram International Circuit, on the 20-21st of May. The inaugural race of the Blancpain GT Series Asia took place at Sepang in Malaysia last weekend and Ban Chang based Thai driver Sandy Stuvik was eager to begin the new season in his Vincenzo Sospiri Racing supported Lamborghini Huracan GT3. Partnering Stuvik this season is Martin Kodrić, an official Lamborghini junior driver and the pair, one of the youngest in the series, entered the Silver Cup class which is the second largest category in the bumper field of thirty cars.After three days of testing and free practice, two frenetic qualifying sessions of fifteen minutes each took place on Saturday morning. Stuvik went out in Q1, a session which was red-flagged twice, once at the halfway point and again with two minutes left. The session was not restarted leaving Stuvik in 8th place overall, 5th in class. Kodrić took over for Q2 which saw an almost identical situation with an unwelcome red at the halfway point. Further improvements were impossible when the session restarted and Kodrić qualified in 13th place overall, again 5th in class.Thai driver Sandy Stuvik steers his Vincenzo Sospiri Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 (center) into a corner on lap 1 of the Silver Cup race at the Sepang International Circuit in Sepang, Malaysia, Saturday, April 8.Stuvik took the start for race one and behind him a grid accident brought out the safety car which neutralised the race for four laps. The track went green on lap five and much of the first part of the race was spent with the top six fighting their way past Liu’s Ferrari. The number 86 Audi was the first to get ahead and the eventual race winner streaked off into the distance creating a gap which proved unbeatable.On lap nine Stuvik passed the Ferrari to move into 5th and started chasing down Gounon’s Porsche. The pit window opened and on lap thirteen VSR called Stuvik in to hand over to Kodrić. When the pit window closed and the race settled down the Croatian found himself down in 10th place. His pace during his stint allowed him to pick off two places and he spent his last laps defending 8th from a train of Audi’s.
