buckethead

26th Mar 2004

I was just reminiscing about an old album I listened to a lot before I went to art school in 1991: Appetite for Destruction by Guns 'n' Roses. What a classic! Anyway, I've kind of lost touch with the developments with Guns 'n' Roses in the last few years, so was quite surprised to hear that they have a new guitarist who names himself Buckethead. As you can see from the image above (taken from Guitar 2001) he chooses that name because he sports a rather fetching KFC Bucket on head ... when playing live with the group ... what a wanker!
