Buckethead

Buckethead is one of the most bizarre and enigmatic figures in American underground and experimental music since Parliament-Funkadelic birthed their bevy of cosmic characters in the mid-'70s. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist best known for his virtuosic command of the electric guitar, Buckethead is one of the instrument's most recognizable contemporary innovators, his rapid-fire riffing, near-robotic fretwork, and idiosyncratic lead lines combining elements of Yngwie Malmsteen, Adrian Belew, Slayer's Kerry King, P-Funk's Eddie Hazel, and avant-improv artist John Zorn's Scud-attack sax abuse. His first group, the San Francisco-based metal-funk combine the Deli Creeps, were a regional success, but disbanded before they could release anything. Buckethead's solo career has been more productive, thanks mostly to the motivation of Zorn and Bill Laswell, the latter of whom Buckethead has also recorded and toured with in Praxis. Laswell has also produced a number of Buckethead's solo albums (including Dreamatorium and Day of the Robot) and included him on more than a dozen one-off recordings with the likes of Hakim Bey, Bootsy Collins, Anton Fier, Jonas Hellborg, and Bernie Worrell. In addition to releases including 1998's Colma, Buckethead has also contributed soundtrack material to such films as Last Action Hero and Street Fighter. Buckethead returned in 1999 with Monsters and Robots, after which he joined the short-lived re-formation of Guns N' Roses. A steady stream of releases followed into the 21st century ranging from the contemplative Electric Tears to a more electronica/rock hybrid, and collaborations with San Francisco's underground hip-hop scene. In the following decade, he averaged a few releases a year, teaming up with dozens of artists, including Les Claypool, Iggy Pop, and Mike Patton, and in 2008, he collaborated with actor/musician Viggo Mortensen for Pandemonium from American. A dizzying string of releases would follow before the actor and the enigmatic guitarist worked together again in 2011 on Reunion. The following year, Buckethead released Electric Sea, a follow-up to his 2002 album, Electric Tears. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi

My favorite musical artist of all time- even better LIVE! Soothsayer was our wedding song- he's incredibly talented. He is constantly releasing new albums- musical genius!
Awesome! A true master at his work! HEY! He wears a bucket on his head... *i*
I know buckethead's true identity. He's really Gary Busey. It's true. I met him backstage.
Bucket Head... One of the greats!

GET all the PIKES before they are sold out!!!
abackus22 - I completely agree. Population Override is essential listening for every guitarist.
Population Override is an essential album for anyone who plays guitar to marvel at.
saw bucket at the variety playhouse in ATL.... Awesome. During the toy exchange bucket gave this girl a 3 foot tall Buzz Light Year. Pretty awesome
One of the best guitars of the coming modern time even though he is a little old
Why is there no cobra strike II on here or no reference its got the sick video game guitar beats
Awesome! Didn't know anything besides him taking my guitar hero's place in G&R, I have a greater respect for Buckethead. He is one of the best musicians out there. His compositions are incredible and his ability is second to none.
There are many different sides to the bucket. He's got the ambient electronic tunes, the funky tunes, the rip your face off shred tunes, and much, much more. His musical styles are incredibly diverse.
