Buckethead is back after a brief hiatus from the road! His last show was New

Years Eve 2012 in San Francisco. During his live appearance absence,

Buckethead has released more than 200 pieces of product referred to as “pikes”.

Buckethead is virtuoso guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist who encompasses

several genres of music. He has released 256 studio albums, 4 special releases and

an EP. He has performed on over 50 more albums by other artists. His music

spans such diverse areas as progressive metal, rock, funk, blues, jazz, bluegrass,

and avant-garde music.

When performing in his theatrical persona, Buckethead used to wear a KFC bucket

on his head, emblazoned with an orange bumper sticker that reads "FUNERAL" in

capital black block letters, and an expressionless plain white costume mask. More

recently, he has switched to a plain white bucket no longer bearing the KFC logo.

He also incorporates nun chucks, robot dancing, and toy trading into his stage

performances. Buckethead's persona represents a character that was "raised by

chickens" and has made it his "mission in life to alert the world to the ongoing

chicken holocaust in fast-food joints around the globe."

Buckethead is best known 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".

He performs primarily as a solo artist, though he has collaborated extensively with

a wide variety of high profile artists such as Iggy Pop, Les Claypool, Bill Laswell,

Bootsy Collins, Serj Tankian, Brain, Mike Patton, Viggo Mortensen, and was a

member of several big bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Col. Claypool Bucket of

Bernie Brains, and Praxis.
