Brian Patrick Carroll (born May 13, 1969), better known by his stage name Buckethead, is a guitarist and multi instrumentalist who has worked within several genres of music. He has released 45 studio albums, four special releases and one EP. He has performed on over 50 more albums by other artists. His music spans such diverse areas as progressive metal, funk, blues, jazz, bluegrass, ambient, and avant-garde music. Buckethead is famous for wearing a KFC bucket on his head, emblazoned with an orange bumper sticker reading ''FUNERAL'' in capital black block letters, and an expressionless plain white mask which, according to Buckethead, was inspired by his seeing ''Halloween 4''. At one point, he changed to a plain white bucket that no longer bore the KFC logo; but subsequently reverted to his trademark KFC bucket. He also incorporates nunchaku and robot dancing into his stage performances. As an instrumentalist, Buckethead has received critical acclaim for his electric guitar playing, and is considered one of today's more innovative guitarists. He has been voted number 8 on a list in ''GuitarOne'' magazine of the "Top 10 Greatest Guitar Shredders of All Time" as well as being included in ''Guitar World's'' lists of the "25 all-time weirdest guitarists" and is also known for being in the "50 fastest guitarists of all time list". Buckethead performs primarily as a solo artist, though he has collaborated extensively with a wide variety of high profile artists such as Bill Laswell, Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, Iggy Pop, Les Claypool, Serj Tankian, Bill Moseley, Mike Patton, Viggo Mortensen, That 1 Guy, and was a member of Guns N' Roses from 2000 to 2004. Buckethead has also written and performed music for major motion pictures, including: ''Saw II'', ''Ghosts of Mars'', ''Beverly Hills Ninja'', ''Mortal Kombat'', ''Mortal Kombat: Annihilation'', ''Last Action Hero'', and contributed lead guitar to the track "Firebird" featured on the ''Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie'' soundtrack.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
