He wears a bucket on his head... and he's also not too shabby when it comes to playing guitar like an absolute boss. Best known to most guitarists for his inimitable playing style during his solo career, with one of the quirkiest sounds around, he is a true inventor, and a true innovator when it comes to music.
He gained wider fame from playing with the reincarnation of Guns N' Roses with Axl Rose, tracking parts for the Chinese Democracy album.
Ozzy Osbourne famously said that Buckethead "plays like a motherf*****", and we agree. So do you, apparently.
