Buckethead, or Brian Caroll, is a kick ass guitarist! I was reading his biography and it said the reason he wears a mask and a bucket on his head came from insiration. He loved Halloween 4. So, after watching it one night with a bucket of fried chicken, he buys a mike myers mask and puts its on following the bucket of chicken on his head. The biography claims that's how he got his name. Correct me if I'm wrong but, I thought as a kid, he was tortured by his father. He made Brian sleep in a chicken coup and forced him to wear the bucket on his head? I'm confused. Does anyone else know enough about him to give me factual information?
