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.  ;)

This is by far the worst thread I have ever layed eyes on.
We had a similar thread on another board.  :-/ :-/ :-/

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.
Buckethead is going to be the guy who rewrote the book on guitar technique.
