1991 video of buckethead with deli creeps, plus early pic of buckethead unmasked

in early 1991 i saw a band called the open for at oakland night spot the omni (rip). everyone was blown away by the , with a michael meyers mask and bucket on his head, who played like no one had ever heard before.

somehow even with high profile gigs like g’n'r, buckethead has continued to be a secret-identity superhero through the years. i’m thrilled to have just found a video that captures the magic of spring 1991, as the 19-or-20 yr old shreds with his original band at sf’s club o (rip). plus, look at the old pic of him without his mask!!!! (found linked on his wikipedia entry).

    You are all fairly uneducated on the subject of Buckethead. Let me clarify for you all.

    1. That is his original mask and NOT a Micheal Meyers mas. He wears masks of the same type to this day.

    2. That is in not his “Real” pinky finger. It’s a gimmick.

    3. You cannot take down the picture because that picture has been around since before Buckethead even existed. He sent it in to Guitar World along with 4 Demo songs in a contest. If Brian Caroll (Buckethead) wanted the pic off the net it wouldn’t be anywhere around. And trust me, It (along with other “supposed” unmasked Buckethead pictures) are there if you know where to look.

    Any questions?

    I think a lot of organizations are exploring new ways to become more cost efficient these days. Many big companies often use large amounts of paper in their everyday environments.So they need a paper shredders because Paper shredders are a simple solution to destroying many of the documents and materials that hold private information.Taking simple steps, such as purchasing a paper shredder, can help you avoid a lot of pain and suffering in the future. That seems well worth the small investment.Wanted to compliment on your site, it looks really good.
