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

Are any of you actually LISTENING to this music? This guy is just a TERRIBLE incompetent guitarist. what he does u can hear in any music shop anywhere on the planet on any Saturday morning. Zero originality, clumsy technique, dull s**t that 40,000 other guitarists can do.

Siege Engine was great until about 3 1/2 minutes into the 7 minute song had the exact same 3 chords on repeat until the very end while he soloed over them. The progression is actually cool (and the soloing was superb), but it got tiring when played over and over and over again. I love Buckethead , but that was a bit much for me.

Saw Buckethead at Emo's in Austin last night with great anticipation . Very entertaining , way too heavy on the shred-metal stuff, never got to anything melodic or emotional enough to highlight that talent. Nothing like what my Buckethead Pandora channel covers. 15 minutes of finger exercises to prove you're the fastest player on earth is enough, move on. A missed opportunity to blow us away.

He said he used to hide out in the Haunted Mansion and the organ player taught him how to play the piece he plays in the dining room.

I am blessed to see him May 31, 2016, in Pensacola, Florida. Hope I don't die before then. After the show, fine.

There is a God. And he ain't named Jim, Eric, Steve or Yngwie.

Ive been listening to him for nearly 20 years and Ive yet to discover and hear everything he's put out. Amazing and inspiring. I guess when your born in a coup and raised in a cage and sneak out to the graveyard to play all night to the faces made of stone you become one BADASS guitar player.
