Giant Robot
The Story
Best known for his virtuostic command of the electric guitar and now as the new lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses, Buckethead is of the most bizarre and enigmatic figures in underground and experimental music today. "Giant Robot" marks the debut of Buckethead's disembodied musical stylings, inspired by his passion for Japanese monster and martial arts films, horror and avant-garde cinema, and features guitar heavy rock, hip-hop, electronic and twisted funk--all represented as only Buckethead can. Special guests include rock icon Iggy Pop, Parliament/Funkadelic drummer Jerome "Bigfoot" Brailey, Parliament / Funkadelic alum Bootsy Collins, legendary producer Bill Laswell, Sly Dunbar (of Peter Tosh, Black Uhuru, Sly & Robbie fame), the voice of Bill Mosley "Onions" (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), and Karl Berger of Material fame.
