** While, interestingly enough, RedHotChiliPeppers thought he was "sweet and normal", which was their reason for not accepting him in the band. And Axl Rose had no qualms with getting him in Guns N' Roses, despite the obvious clash of the musician's gimmicks and the band's style.

Brian Patrick Carroll, better known by his [[StageNames stage name]] (or rather [[KayfabeMusic stage persona]]) Music/{{Buckethead}}, is a prolific American experimental/avant-garde/progressive/thrash/jazz/electronica/insanity songwriter and multi-instrumentalist noted for his [[CloudCuckoolander eccentric persona]], as well as for [[BunnyEarsLawyer being really good with his instruments]]. Also, he only ever performs while wearing an [[WhiteMaskOfDoom expressionless plain white mask]] and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a KFC bucket on his head]]. To date, he has released over 123 solo albums and performed on over 50 more. Played lead guitar for Music/GunsNRoses from 2000-2004, and for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praxis_(band) Praxis]] from 1992-1999 and from 2004-present. His discography may be found [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckethead_discography here]].

Sadly, [[PopCulturalOsmosis you probably only know him]] for [[VideoGame/GuitarHero "Jordan"]], the song from the scene where [[Film/MortalKombat Goro beats the crap out of Art Lean]], or the seriously badass rendition of the theme from MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie.

* CommonalityConnection: Over the years he's worked closely with and developed friendships with [[CloudCuckoolander similarly eccentric people]] in the entertainment industry (most of which are mentioned below). For a more funny take on this, he apparently mentioned in a magazine interview that he liked Shavo Odadjian of Music/SystemOfADown because the latter "has a look on his face, where you can tell he dug up something he shouldn't have" and Bucket proceeded to tell Shavo that [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he liked digging holes too and they could dig together sometime]].
* {{Crossover}}: With [[Music/SystemOfADown Serj Tankian]], [[Music/{{Primus}} Les Claypool]], [[MikePatton Mike]] [[Music/FaithNoMore Patton]], Bernie Worrell, [[Music/TheStooges Iggy Pop]], Guns N' Roses, Praxis, Brain, [[Music/GeorgeClinton Bootsy Collins]], Deli Creeps, Science Faxtion, Cornbugs, Bill Moseley, Bill Laswell, Travis Dickerson, Creator/ViggoMortensen, Giant Robot, DJ Disk, Lawson Rollins, Jonas Hellborgs, Michael Shrieve, and That 1 Guy.

* MistakenIdentity: For a time people would find pictures on the Internet of a tall guitarist with long hair, standing next to Music/ShawnLane. Immediately someone rushed to the conclusion that it's Buckethead unmasked, because he knew Shawn Lane personally. Turns out it was the French guitarist Stephane "Fanalo" Alaux, who just happens to be tall like Buckethead and had also met Shawn Lane and even [[Music/MrBig Paul Gilbert]] at one point. Apparently Fanalo got so many e-mails of people [[FanDumb asking him if he's Buckethead]] (despite the fact that Buckethead's American, a few years older, etc.) that he now explicitly states on his myspace and facebook that he isn't. Amusingly enough, Fanalo wrote on his official site that he admits to being guitarist Bumblefoot ([[CaptainObvious which he isn't either]]). He also posted a picture of himself [[CrowningMomentOfFunny wearing a popcorn bucket on his head and covering his face]], as a jest to the many who called him Buckethead.
