Buckethead & Friends

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

Best comment I've ever seen from the past few years of youtube stalking buckethead videos, was this guy who said something like. How his daughter was listening with him and asked her if she liked it and she said 'daddy the guitar cried.' from buckethead's padmasana. Love buckethead!

Command of his instrument is right! Dude's must have missed meals to get as good as he is.

Slash isn't worthy of adjusting BH's strap.

Buckethead has complete command of the axe - very few can compete at this level.
Report as inappropriate
he tours all the time - not sure if he's playing with G'n'R on the tour, but he has the chops to perform slash's stuff. See him live, he played a solo show for more than 3 hours, fingers aflame, stopping only to twirl swords and nunchuckus on stage. it will melt your collective faces. by the by, the G'n'R album is the best vocal work axl has ever recorded; buckethead is a great groove maker. take the time to listen to the rest of the album, think the way one hot minute stood out as a chili pep

He's not autistic.
Report as inappropriate
My initial thought was "He better have a damn good reason for that bucket gimmick." His actual reason is that his "mission in life to alert the world to the ongoing chicken holocaust in fast-food joints around the globe."
O.o lolwut?
Turns out he's actually an autistic savant, which is a really good excuse in my opinion.

Note: the song mentioned in the early 2009 comments is named "Electric Tears" not "Bucket of Tears."

Isn't it called Electric Tears? I've never heard of "Bucket of Tears". I could be wrong though. Keep listening to challenging music.
