Buckethead was Guns N' Roses lead guitarist
from 2000 to 2004.
Buckethead during his tenure in Guns N' Roses.
As you will discover in the following videos and articles, Buckethead seems to be a weirdo and a basket case 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
As the legend goes, Buckethead insisted on the contract signing happens at Disney in the Haunted Mansion. Buckethead was in full costume and would only talk to the lawyers from Sony via Herbie (his disembodied head puppet).
Buckethead's weird as Hell, but he's also self aware of how his gimmick is perceived. Remember how Michael Jackson used to leak fake stories about buying the skeleton of the Elephant Man and stuff like that to keep up the Wacko Jacko persona? Well, it's no coincidence that Bucket is a massive Michael Jackson fan.
