Post Hilarious buckethead info which you probably all know!
Taken from wikipedia so take it with a pinch of salt!

His playing began improving with lessons from various teachers, most notably Paul Gilbert, from whom he received private instruction until Gilbert got fed up with him wearing the bucket and mask to lessons every day. Gilbert asked him to take them off, but when Buckethead refused, a physical altercation ensued. Gilbert became enraged and leapt at Buckethead, knocking off the bucket and trying to force the mask from his face. Buckethead ended up walking out, and the two have not spoken since.

Is that really true? Gilbert leaping at people!? Never!

I can't believe that is even remotely true, and should be edited from the page.

That doesn't sound at all true.

No. He taught Brian before he became buckethead. Brian wasn't even old enough to drive so his mom used to drop him off at Gilberts place for his lesson.

OUCH!

Also, Paul himself said he met Brian at an airport some years ago, and Paul didn't recognize him because his hair was so long. But then they had a nice quick chat;

Yeah, Paul taught him before he became buckethead, and he even said that at the time he was already super fast.

Paul also said in an interview that he was proud of buckethead (since he played a part in his formation.)

i saw a story about how ozzy got pissed at buckethead when he wouldnt take off the mask/bucket at ozzfest or something. i guess he ended up not booking buckethead.

ive seen both paul and buckethead live in the last 2 years, both great. ive recently been learning a bunch of songs off of bucketheads "decoding the tomb of bansheebot" album.

Haha yes the ozzy story is true. I saw Buckethead aswell almost 2 months ago and it was one of the craziest shows i've ever been to. I really can't wait to see him again live.. honestly I look forward more to seeing him again than to seeing Paul again (solo stuff)

I haven't had the chance to get the Bansheebot album, I really want to though!
