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!!

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!?!

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.

Slash vs Buckethead
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.

Michael Jackson long story with Heavy Metal guitarists

Michael Jackson was never affraid to think outside the box and always afforded the best musicians money can buy. And it happens that some of the very best lead guitarists are Heavy Metal guitarists.

Another thing that is worth mentioning. Michael Jackson didn't instill a dress code for the badass Heavy Metal guitarists he employed. As you can see in the contrast in fashion style. Leather, studs, denin, flannel, big hair... Slash could even smoke cigarettes on the stage!

Given some time, if Michael Jackson was alive today. The weird looking Buckethead (Guns N' Roses lead guitarist 2000-2004) would certainly have played for him. Plus, Buckethead is a lifelong Michael Jackson fan.

Here below is a rather silly video illustrating the correlation between Buckethead and Michael Jackson.

Slash vs Buckethead

Slash and Buckethead are two ex-Guns N' Roses lead guitar players, two weird names, two unique hats, and no free can of Dr. Pepper.

I explain the Dr. Pepper thing.  In March 2008, Dr. Pepper, a major soft drink company, issued a public challenge to Axl Rose, stating that they would give a free can of soda to everyone in the country — except ex-GN’R members Slash and Buckethead — if the band’s long-delayed album ‘Chinese Democracy’ came out that year. When the album did in fact arrive later that fall, the company was unable to keep up with demand, resulting in a downed website, frustrated customers and even the threat of a lawsuit.  Oh, and tons of publicity, which… was obviously the whole point.

Izzy Stradlin look alike Richard Fortus

Guns N' Roses (now known as Axl Rose Band) chief commander Axl Rose has the nasty habit of employing scabs looking like the original GN'R lineup members.  After getting the Izzy Stradlin look-a-like Richard Fortus and the Slash look-a-like DJ Ashba.  Now Axl needs a Duff McKagan knock-off and a Steven Adler rip-off.  And maybe a clone of himself, just in case he get fired... by himself.

Keep your shirt on Richard.  I don't think Izzy got the same tattoo.
