As crazy and mentally disturbed (or just goos at acting) as the guy is, he is probably the best and most versatile guitarist alive...big call, i know.

Buckethead recently had his time in the new (and i might add terrible) Guns 'n' Roses, aside from that hes made 30 solo albums and appeared on over 50. (Axl is even keeping the content he recorded for 'Chinese Democracy' despite him having left the band.)

He does have a fair amount of recognition, but i must say not nearly enough for what he does. The man is a musical genious, and not nearly enough people know it.

Let me clarify that YES:
- I do realise he wars a KFC bucket and a mask on his head.
- I do realise he dosnt speck directly to or look directly at cameras.
- I have seen photos of him without his mask and YES he does look normal.
- He probably is mentally disturbed in one way or another.
- I realise that he's is not an alien nor was he attacked and mutilated by chickens...and i do dnderstand he tends to think he is/was.
BUT HES ONE OF THE BEST GUITARISTS ALIVE!...he may not have the look and stlye of guys like Clapton, Slash and Rhoads, but god he can play ANYTHING! - And hes unique.
(Sorry, i had to add that...last time i tried to mention buckethead i got flamed koz he is such a nutcase, which i understand, but still that dosnt make him any less of a great musician and guitarist.)

Check out some of his stuff on youtube:
YouTube - Guns N' Roses Buckethead solo
YouTube - Buckethead Lesson (Edited Version)
YouTube - Buckethead Jam Session

Anyone agree/disagree? Why?
I love him. White Wash is my favorite song of his, kind of also because it's the only full song of his I can play..>.<

A LOT of people know him now just because of Guitar Hero 2.

Oh, and Nutcase?? I very much doubt it. It's all an act IMO. And he has great taste in Movies lol.

I hate people who say he shows no emotion because all he does is "Shread Shit" and because you can't see his face. He is very versatile. If I ever watch a Guns video with buckethead in it I make sure not to read all the comments about slash being 30430248 times better.

Re: The most underappreciated rock/metal guitarists

I saw Guns (Axl) with Buckethead. The guy is definitely a wizard and could handle Slash's parts with little effort. It took me about 1/2 a dozen songs in to stop staring at the damn bucket though (kinda made me hungry in the process too).

So I gotta ask. If the guy is that talented, why the need for a KFC bucket on your head? Why not just a big old 10 gallon shoot-em-up hat or something with a little less commercial appeal than the colonel?

Maybe it's nostalgia or purity or whatever you want to call it, but I'd still rather have seen Slash up their doing it.

But I'll definitely check out Mr. BH to see what his originality has produced. Thanks for the links.

Slower Version..
YouTube - Buckethead - Whitewash - The Catalyst 2/24/06

YouTube - Buckethead - Nottingham Lace

YouTube - Buckethead - Padmasana

Few random links. His puppet has said in interviews he covers his face to show he doesn't care about looks and to have people focus on the music.

Re: The most underappreciated rock/metal guitarists

Here is a blast from the past - Andy LaRoque. Never heard of him? Not many people give him enough cred. He is the guitarist for King Diamond. Listen to his speed picking or his use of the whammy bar. It is tasty stuff!!!

Rick Derringer joined the band for the next album as Ronnie left to start his solo band.
Both very good guitar players.

Re: The most underappreciated rock/metal guitarists

i wouldn't say buckethead is underrated at all, in fact thats all 13 year old kids talk about right now

and I wouldn't say MAB and Yngwie malmsteen are underrated either, they are what they are - shredders.

Ron Wood.



Such a soulful player. Wrote and co-wrote so many great songs with the Faces, Rod, and the Stones.

He might have dressed like your favorite Aunt, but he is definately a guitar hero in my book!

Another vote to Dave Kushner and Buckethead.

I'll also add: Bumblefoot, Mattias Eklundh.

If you haven't heard of the last two, look them up on youtube, seriously.

Re: The most underappreciated rock/metal guitarists

+1 on Rik Emmett

This will surprise all of you that have never seen him play live but "Sammy Hagar" is a great guitar player and really is only known to most for his singing and song writing.

Sammy can play--that I can attest too personally as I have seen him live on many occasions and been severely entertained--

Jimmy Lyon-one of Eddy Money's first guitar players and he played on virtually every hit--Tasteful and cool licks--I like him-

Frank Hannon from Tesla--Frank is great and I really enjoy his playing style.

Jake E. Lee--if you ever saw him live back in the day when he was with the Ozman--You know what I am talking about-

Jim Babjak from the Smithereens-I love this band and Jim is killer and a straight forward rock and roll player that knows when to play and when to get the hell out of the way--

Rick Neilson has always gotten the nerdy, geeky nod, but he has been scoffed at as a player-He is good-

Jerry Cantrell-I like his style and I think he is much better than most people give him credit for.

Peter Frampton--why in the hell do we not hear more about this guy's chops--

Mike Campbell is also another guy that has kept Tom Petty afloat all these years--These two guys form one of the best working relationships in rock--

Oh Yeah-Bonnie Raitt-I saw her last week and I will tell you this, I have a new found respect for her playing after seeing her live. There is far more to Bonnie than good, tasteful slide work-She can play--well.

Michael Wilton - Queensryche and Frank Hannon - Tesla. Both have been going with their respective bands for nigh on 25 years now, still putting out good music, but never seem to get the kudos they deserve.

Ollie Halsall of Patto. 99.9% of people won't have heard/know of him. Incredible guitarist.

Check out the second solo around 2:02
