|Ressources - Guitar Hero|
Brian Carroll, better known as Buckethead, is an American guitarist and songwriter. He is a prolific composer, having released 38 solo albums and performed on over 50 more. He has also made guest appearances on 44 different albums by various artists. His music spans such diverse areas as progressive metal, new wave, funk, electronica, jazz, bluegrass and avant-garde music.
Buckethead wears a KFC bucket on his head and a white plastic mask similar to that of Michael Myers. He was inspired to wear both items on the night he watched Halloween 4. Whenever dressed like this (most of the time during performances) he represents a character who was "raised by chickens, and has made it his mission in life to alert the world to the ongoing chicken holocaust in fast-food joints around the globe".  Sometimes the KFC bucket bears an orange sticker with the word "FUNERAL" written on it.
Buckethead now works primarily as a solo artist, and may tour the United States with a trio. He has collaborated with wide variety of high profile artists such as Les Claypool, Tony Williams, Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, Iggy Pop, Serj Tankian, Guns N' Roses, Saul Williams, Mike Patton, Viggo Mortensen and with Bill Laswell in Praxis. Buckethead has also written and performed music for major motion pictures. Some of the films he has worked on include: Saw II, Ghosts of Mars, Beverly Hills Ninja, Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Last Action Hero and the soundtrack of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie.
