Buckethead 真名：Brian Carroll（布莱恩·卡罗尔）,著名吉他手Paul Gilbert的高徒，他的音乐风格是将电子乐，吉他噪音，独特的创意，融合到一起。
带着肯得基桶当帽子的Buckethead共收集有40个此种肯德基桶，现已停产，因为他很喜欢肯得基桶所以才被称为Buckethead。他至今共发行过超过30张个人Solo专辑，并且在33张专辑中担任吉他手。参加过的著名乐队包括Praxis, Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains和Guns N' Roses，他还是一些电影原声带和电玩配乐的guest player。Buckethead的演奏跨越多个风格，包括thrash metal, funk和electronica等等，他是著名吉他演奏家、教育家、理论家Paul Gilbert的学生，速弹吉他手排行榜名列第八，老师Paul Gilbert第四，第一是Michael Angelo。1996年Slash离开Guns N'Roses，在经历过几个主音吉他手后，2000年Guns N'Roses终于找到了Buckethead作为他们的合适人选，但在2004年Buckethead突然离开了他已经效力了四年的Guns N' Roses。
这位搜集多种肯德鸡桶当成帽子的吉他怪客Buckethead，表演风格超诡异，随着弹琴时的节奏及律动，他的身体常不由自主像个机器人，有时还会跳霹雳舞，耍双截棍，噪音吉他SOLO到一半还会突如其来融入轻快的儿歌，也尝试用吉他音效来弹奏模拟“鸡”叫的声音，俨然像是吉他世界里的周星驰。相信看了他表演的人，对吉他手应该又有不同的视野，技巧之外，其实也是种个人舞台的另类创意发挥。不过别看他只是耍宝，过去除了曾经接替Guns & Roses吉他手Slash的位置一段时日之外，也参与许多电影原声带或是电玩配乐，更是Guitar One杂志票选出的世界上十大速弹手之一。
Buckethead,is a virtuoso guitarist, bassist, and multi instrumentalist who encompasses several genres of music. He has released 29 studio albums, 4 special releases and an EP as of 2010. He has performed on over 50 more albums by other artists. His music spans such diverse areas as progressive metal, funk, electronica, jazz, bluegrass, and avant-garde music.
When performing in his theatrical persona, Buckethead used to wear a KFC bucket on his head, emblazoned with an orange bumper sticker that reads "FUNERAL" in capital black block letters, and an expressionless plain white costume mask. More recently, he has switched to a plain white bucket no longer bearing the KFC logo. He also incorporates nunchucks, robot dancing, and toy trading into his stage performances. Buckethead's persona 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."
An instrumentalist, Buckethead is best known for his electric guitar playing. He has been voted number 8 on a list in GuitarOne magazine of the "Top 10 Greatest Guitar Shredders of All Time" as well as being included in Guitar World's lists of the "25 all-time weirdest guitarists" and is also known for being in the "50 fastest guitarists of all time list".
Buckethead performs primarily as a solo artist. He has collaborated extensively with a wide variety of high profile artists such as Bill Laswell, Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, Iggy Pop, Les Claypool, Serj Tankian, Bill Moseley, Mike Patton, Viggo Mortensen, and was a member of Guns N' Roses from 2000 to 2004. Buckethead has also written and performed music for major motion pictures, including: Saw II, Ghosts of Mars, Beverly Hills Ninja, Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Last Action Hero, and the main soundtrack of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie.
Captain EO's Voyage is the twenty-ninth studio album released by guitarist Buckethead. The album's title is a reference to Michael Jackson's movie Captain EO. It is not the first time Jackson has been referenced; Buckethead released the track "The Return of Captain EO" on the album A Real Diamond in the Rough in 2009, and a notable song dedicated to the death of Jackson titled "The Homing Beacon."
The album was first made available only as a download through iTunes, but 2 days after the release it was announced that the album would be released on CD through TDRS Music. It is also the first solo release since Kaleidoscalp (2005) that has not been released first through TDRS. The pre-order of the album, along with Left Hanging, started on October 29 with a tentative release of December 1. Eventually, the CD was released on November 29.
