Buckethead, or Brian Carroll, is one of my favorite guitar players. GuitarOne named him 8th fastest guitar player in the world. He has a unique sound when he plays, and usually his playing is accomodated by still robot/mannequin style movements, such as robot twitching. He is also known for being able to make two sounds come out of a guitar at once. he has played in such bands as The Deli Creeps, Giant Robot, and Guns and Roses. His main hit was at ozzfest in 1999.
He got his alias of buckhet one day while eating fried chicken. he chooses to be creepy. He also enjoys robot style breakdancing and playing with his nunchukus. He can usually combine guitar/robot/nunchuckus into his performance all at once.
Buckethead is one of the greatest guitar players of all time.
