Crowning Moment of Funny: When he was auditioned and accepted by Ozzy Osbourne on the condition of him getting rid of the bucket. The next time he met with Ozzy, he came wearing a green alien thing on his head instead. He then proceeded to play mindgames with Ozzy. That's right, he had the balls to play mind games with Ozzy Osbourne.
Ozzy Osbourne: I tried out that Buckethead guy. I met with him and asked him to work with me but only if he got rid of the fucking bucket. So I came back a bit later and he's wearing this green fucking Martian's-hat thing. I said, "Look, just be yourself!" He told me his name was Brian, so I said that's what I'd call him. He says, "No one calls me Brian except my mother." So I said, "Pretend I'm your mum then!" I haven't even got out of the room and I'm already playing fucking mind games with the guy. What happens if one day he's gone and there's a note saying, "I've been beamed up?" [laughs] Don't get me wrong, he's a great player. He plays like a motherfucker!
His recorded interviews (actually meant as jokes and made by his friends) can be rather funny, switching back and forth from weird humor to Squick.
