Bucket Head the GOAT

I can't believe I only found out about this guy three days ago.
Here is a short clip but I have been watching his stuff for days and most impressed.
What do you guitar players think of his ability?

His parents must be so proud. You know this guy, Brian Patrick Carroll, is actually a 50 year old guy from Huntington Beach, California.

Yes a youngster. But I don't think there is a photo without the mask.
Interesting bio re out put I have read upto 400 albums.
Arguably the best technically.
Hard to come up with an hour and a half of entertaining lead guitar.

Hmm, entertaining? Perhaps to some, maybe it's the bucket. He is no Jimi Hendrix.

Well not every ones cup of tea but my point is putting together an hour and a half is very difficult ..heck if I were to try ten minutes and it's all over...

Technically he plays way way better than Jimmy.

The trouble is he has so much stuff ...such a body of work is way beyond anyone else ..a lot is same same to most folks ears but as I listen to more of his stuff I am forming the opinion that he is indeed the goat as he has been called by others who know better than me.
It is easy to be dismissive but upon careful examination you find many levels.

Some of his slow stuff is really beautiful and strangely moving.

He gives a display using nunchuckers that would out class Bruce Lee ..two at once and one in the right hand while he generates sound with his left...a handy talent in the last pub I played in ( only 3 times so not I to it). He does four finger tapping which is really something.

This guy is even better than I originally thought. He is as good as I would have been if I had have decided to practice.
