Let's not mince words. Buckethead is one of the best rock guitarists on the market right now. Artists as diverse as Les Claypool, Bootsy Collins and Mike Patton have relied on him to enhance their shows, and with good reason. He not only entrances audiences with his machine-perfect chops, but his overall aesthetic is mesmerizing in its enigma, if not horrific. If anything, see the show for him alone.
