Guns N' Roses & Buckethead

Guns N' Roses Axl Rose & Buckethead.
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.

Buckethead also has weird recording habits that scandalized Axl Rose.

Who is the best Guns N' Roses lead guitarist?

In an article Buckethead wrote in 2008, he claiming to be 100% focused on Guns N' Roses Chinese Democracy, four years after his departure from Guns N' Roses.

Buckethead weird recording habits

It seem that Buckethead is as weirdo as he looks like. 

Buckethead trademark look: a KFC bucket, a Michael Myers Halloween mask, a yellow raincoat.

  1. Buckethead always wears a KFC bucket on his head.
  2. Buckethead always wears a Michael Myers-Halloween mask.
  3. Buckethead often wears a yellow raincoat.
  4. Buckethead communicates through a glove puppet??!!??
  5. Buckethead incorporates nunchaku and robot dancing into his stage performances... WTF????

Nonetheless, he will deliver better than anyone...

  • Buckethead is a virtuoso guitarist and multi-instrumentalist who has worked in several diverse styles of music.
  • Buckethead is extremely prolific!  Has released 265 studio albums, four special releases and one EP. He has also performed on more than 50 other albums by other artists. Wow! Astonishing!!

Buckethead chicken coop
Buckethead chicken coop...
Even better with a dog shit smell.

From 2000-2004, the prolific Buckethead aka Brian Patrick Carroll took Slash's place as Guns N' Roses lead guitarist. The fuckin' crazy eccentric musician reportedly had some very weird and unusual requests for recording his parts on the album 'Chinese Democracy'.
  • Buckethead insisted on recording his parts for Chinese Democracy in a specially built chicken coop decorated with rubber chicken parts.
  • When Axl's pet wolf puppy took a dump in Buckethead's cage, the guitarist refused to let anyone remove the turd, claiming that he loved the scent. 
  • Buckethead also kept a TV monitor in his coop that streamed constant hardcore porn. 

Another weird fact, is that W. Axl Rose was reportedly far more offended by the hardcore porn streaming than by the dog poop presence.

The moral of the story is:

Axl Rose prefers dog poop over hardcore porn!?!
