    Definately interesting. You do have to wonder if his parents once said "You're going to wear WHAT on your head to make money??"..

    I didn't know about this guy (my knowledge and interest in current popular music stops at roughly the turn of the century). He is very good, looked him up, very prolific with original work and covers, his Led Zeppelin medleys are great.

    Used to play a game called bucket head with my son's, it involved putting a two gallon empty bucket of ice cream someone's head, then throwing small toys at said bucket. Should have trademarked the name I guess.

    I had to look up who (what) he was as well. I was interested to not that he made 'Guitar World's' list of the 25 weirdest guitarists of all time.

    He must have seen Slash in concert and thought, "I can do better than that!"

    With that hat I figured he would be a drummer..... after all, the hat came with two drumsticks.
    His guitar playing is captivating... a talented musician.

    Whatever the original reason, he can go out without constantly being bombarded by rabid fans or paparazzis.

    But he may be followed by cats from the residual KFC smell

    The top returns on Youtube list a bunch of stuff that is only OK at best in my opinion. Or plain old weird. A Real Diamond in the Rough is a pretty good album.

    actually, if memory serves; when Guns ‘n Roses were starting to falter and Slash had left Buckethead was recruited to tour with them.
