Title: Does buckethead have the elephant man\'s disease?
Post by: redwingfan1234 on April 25, 2006, 05:40:33 pm
I saw an old portrait of the elephant man for the first time last night.
Buckethead seems awfully interested in this guy (although most people are). Does anyone think its possible that BH has his disease (or something similar to it) and uses his bucket and mask to hide it?

Q: There have been rumors circulated about your "true identity"--some have said you're actually Steve Vai, some said Wes Borland... What's your favorite rumor you've heard about yourself?


B: That I am the Elephant Man.

maybe buckethead is an adroid behind that mask or maybe the real buckethead is held hostage.

That\'s awesome.

Oddly enough, about 30 minutes after I started this thread I found a picture of Buckethead without his mask or bucket. He\'s only 20 in it, and it\'s the only known picture of his face.

btw, my theory was correct.  ;)

Please.
for the sake of the man\'s privacy (which he goes to great lengths to keep very personal)
please try to not discuss pictures of him without a mask...or about his ID or anything else personal about him.
Especially speculitive health issues. That is just flat out wrong and disrespectful.

That is the meanest,rudest stupidist & just plain dumb assumption I\'ve heard anyone make on someone in my entire life. Do you think its your business? Do you work for the National Weekly Trash magazines? Man, I\'d take a serious look at myself if I were you. Which by the way I\'m glad I\'m not. If you had to work with people with debiltating conditions you wouldn\'t even be asking such f***ed up questions. Go lose yourself.

I\'m going to get this out of the way while this thread is (unfortunately) at the top of the forum:

Get over it. I was not being serious. Kaptkopter- I understand you are new here, and I\'m glad to see your enthusiasm for Buckethead in your other post, but I still don\'t understand why you brought this three month-old thread back to the top of this forum.

And bukk3tbot- out of respect for Travis, I sent you a personal message a long time ago so as not to start an argument on these boards. This thread was starting to descend after kaptkopter brought it back up, and then you have the audacity to once again needlessly summon it to the top of this forum for no other reason than to state something you already said.


In short, I apologize to those who have no sense of humor/imagination, but PLEASE stop posting in this thread. I share the same love and enthusiasm for Buckethead that everyone else has. He, through his music, has entertained me, calmed me down at times, pumped me up at other times, and made me a better guitarist. Amen.

O.K.,
Redwingfan has apologized, said he wasn\'t serious, ( I never thought he was) and sincerely wishes this thread would go away. So, thread over!
