Geek Of The Week: Buckethead

This week we’ll feature another musical performer as our GOTW. His birth name is Brian Carroll, but most people know him simply as Buckethead. Needless to say, he earned this name by wearing a bucket on his head. An extremely talented guitar player, Buckethead has played with Class-X, Praxis, Cornbugs, Guns & Roses, Shin Terrai, Les Claypool, and many more. He has also released over 30 solo albums! Additionally, Buckethead has a side project known as The Pikes. They have released over 270 albums to date. Holy moley! Now Buckethead can add GOTW to his already impressive resume.
