Hard-rock fans know the mysterious guitarist Buckethead from his tour of duty with Guns N’ Roses.
We funkateers know him via collaborations with Bootsy Collins (in Praxis) and Bernie Worrell (Praxis and Colonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains).
Buckethead’s tripped-out virtuosity is barely overshadowed by his personal oddness. (Never seen without a KFC bucket on his head and a mask over his face.) Gotta love a guy whose main obsessions include Japanese movie monsters, robots and amusement parks.
His 2005 CD “Enter the Chicken” (credited to Buckethead & Friends) was produced by Serj Tankian of System of a Down.
One track off that album – “Three Fingers” – features vocals by Saul Williams (whom I blogged about recently). It’s available as a FREE MP3.
