    Buckethead would be working at KFC if it wasn't for EVH.
    And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Genesis 21:17

    I'm sorry, but the bucket on the head and creepy mask just ruins it for me. The guy can play, but it's just to much for me. What's next, wearing a strap on dildo on one's head?

    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    That video is just more evidence about what separates Eddie from the pack. First, it's the melodic nature of it all. Sure, the other guys are fast, but Eddie packs the punch where it counts: It just sounds good.

    Second, the licks that did sound decent? ---Ripped straight from Eddie. You invent it, you get the credit.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I havent listened to more than a few seconds of buckethead before, but wtf?
    Hes good mechanicaly, but there is no melody or feel to the guy.
    Its hard to objectivly judge a new(to me) player since I like eddie so much, but i just dont see how his playing is that interesting or unique. In eds young days, people certainly thought his playing was trippy, didnt they not get signed in '76 because the dude though the guitarist was to trippy or something?

    Buckets use of effects is not impressive. Yeah, ed had cathederal, but that exagerated the notes be played, not hid them.

    If any of you get guitar world check out the thing about buckethead playing with GnR. I fucking hate GnR. Buckethead plays games with them the whole time. He forces them to build a chickencoop in the studio. Someone brings their little puppy in to the studio, and it poops in buckethead's chicken coop. He wouldn't let them clean the poo up, saying he liked the smell. It stank up the studio for 3 days before someone cleaned it up. Sounds like a pretty funny guy. Either that or he's seriously messed up in the head.

    Another way he doesnt have shit on eddie. The man kept his old hip bone in the freezer! Not to mention the do not cook label, which makes it 10x funnier.

    Bucket can play, he's got a lot of talent. Eddie's in a different universe altogether. You can just hear it...Eddie's GOT IT. You could probably do that comparison with Eddie and any other guitarist and come to the same conclusion...it's all in the hands baby.

    buckethead is just as an accomplished player as eddie(paul gilbert was his guitar teacher and a big influence) , but they play two completely different styles. buckethead is way more expiremental/progressive rock/funk/thrash metal

    unless you have some buckethead cd s and dvd s youre not seeing his whole catalog of the styles he can do.

    the guy is as good on bass as he is on guitar also.
