A Conversation With Buckethead

If you're at all into the guitar (or were a Guns N' Roses fan), then chances are you know who Buckethead is. And if you've never heard of him, prepare to meet one of the most talented, generous, and soulful human beings around.

In this episode of Coming Alive, Barry talks to Buckethead, whose real name is Brian Carroll. In his first full-length interview ever (yes, it's really him!), Brian talks about his Part X, his struggles with back pain, how he's comping with the death of both his parents, and his life's dream to build an amusement park. Barry and Brian also talk about the creative process and the genesis of the Buckethead persona. 

Editor's Note: We've heard from so many of you since we published this podcast. And we really mean SO MANY of you! While Barry has long been a big fan of Brian's, we were unaware of the breadth and depth of the Buckethead community. Our hearts have been warmed by your outpouring of love and so has Brian's. Thank you.
