Some of you probably don't know most of his work, but I'll post a few of his best songs imo.

He's one of the most prolific guitar players of our era. Here are a few great musicians mentioning him...

I tried out that Buckethead guy. I met with him and asked him to work with me but only if he got rid of the fucking bucket. So I came back a bit later and he's wearing this green fucking Martian's-hat thing. I said, 'Look, just be yourself!' He told me his name was Brian, so I said that's what I'd call him. He says, 'No one calls me Brian except my mother.' So I said, 'Pretend I'm your mum then!' I haven't even got out of the room and I'm already playing fucking mind games with the guy. What happens if one day he's gone and there's a note saying, 'I've been beamed up?' [Laughs] Don't get me wrong, he's a great player. He plays like a motherfucker!


He's brilliant; I love him. But then you see some guy like BucketheadBuckethead is probably twice as good a guitar player as me and Slash combined, and can stand having fried chicken rubbed up against his face all night for a couple of hours.



A few songs...

I have been following bucketheads thing closely since he came on the scene about 10 years ago now. he is an interesting player that has found a way of dealing with the instrument techinically that is really extraordinary. he also seems pretty fearless as an improvisor in the best sense of the word. i always try to stay up on what he is doing and i always enjoy hearing him. i think i heard that he is going to join guns and roses or something like that? i may skip that one...axl's vibrato doesn't really do it for me... but i am sure that buckethead will bring something hip to the table.
.....
...Just in general. One of my favorites.

Buckethead is, IMO, the most talented guitar player ever to be in GnR. I'm a huge fan of his solo work, especially his latest work with Buckethead Pikes.

Amazing performance. Buckethead is the best nuGn'R guitarist, period.

Buckethead is in a league of his own. I'd kill for a Buckethead concert here in Rio. Too bad that's not gonna happen.

No, in the time he was in the band he did not write anything close to AFD or UYI songs.

While IN GnR, his productivity wasn't all that, especially comparing to his solo career, I agree. But IMO, as a solo artist, I think Buckethead might be in Slash's league. Wait! Take a deep breath, it's just my opinion :lol:

Very talented guitar player no doubt but there are plenty of talented guitar players most music fans have ever heard of and if it wasn't for his Buckethead gimmick, which is brilliant by the way, he would be just another faceless (no pun intended) cult guitar player....IMHO of course

Still doesn`t change fact that he`s the best guitarist who`s ever been in the band it`s a shame Axl did n`t allow him to fully show his potential love Slash but Bucket is just better then him in every way possible
