Buckethead WAS the guitarist in "Guns N Roses" for a few years. I saw him w/ Axl's then-current bunch of mercenaries when they toured in 2001ish at the Fleet Center in Boston. That was one of the many "tours" that went kaput a few shows into the making when Axl ran out of pampers. Buckethead also one of 4-5 different guitarists to record tracks for the never-to-be-released Chinese Democracy debacle.....just to have all the tracks thrown out when the sh*t hit the fan and catfighting blew up.
It is pathetic that any of these post-Slash/Duff/Izzy bands have been pissing on the name Guns N Roses. Axl's illusions have taken him where they may......
Another fun fact about Buckethead is that he tried out for the Red Hot Chili Peppers after Blood/Sugar when John Frusciante (underrated, underrated, underrated) went off to practice being a full-time heroin junkie. Thankfully, Buckethead didn't get the gig. Unfortunately, Dave Navarro (poser) did.
