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

Listen to his song called "Soothsayer. " I can play the entire song. Such a killer song.
this is great
Hits my blues button.....: )
He makes the sounds of life. It's the music that calls my spirit to not just listen with my ears, but open the door to it and enter with my entire being. His music is not something I can listen to every day or with anything else going on. I set up a time alone, without any chance of being distracted, then open my mind to something other than what I am force fed daily by society as normal...and I go. I leave the physical realm and enter a place where the rhythm of my spirit connects to it.
Schaaf that's awesome bro!

BucketHead is part of my everyday life. Love these guys.

I love Buckethead, I really do, but every song on Electric Tears sounds exactly the same.
Man this guy was born to deliver the chills through his hypnotic guitar.
v YA right
My guitar teacher is the guy that taught buckethead.
Respect on this...
Just started listening to Buckethead in this last year...on my short list of great solo guitarists now. Satch, Vai, (Jeff) Beck, (Eric) Johnson. He might have the greatest range of styles of any of them...?
I love buckethead! !! He is,by far one of my favorite guitar players.
Great guitarist

Some hit and miss for me, love/hate relationship with his music. But jesus can he shred when he wants to.

yubacitymusi c
so right...Dave Gilmour special goosebumps!! ! !
reminds me of David Gilmour----l o v e it! I can lose myself in this music.
Buckethead list...to see him live!!!
Saw him solo in 1999 (I think) at the Progfest at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. He started with a sort of performance art thing, not even playing guitar. I was a little embarrassed for him...Until he picked up the guitar. I was BLOWN AWAY. Very interesting character.
