Buckethead - so called because of his habit of wearing an empty fried chicken bucket on his bonce - walked away from Axl Rose's band, or rather what's left of it, to pursue solo work.
Buckethead - real name not Buckethead - told anyone who still cares that he is fed up with "Guns' inability to complete an album or tour." No comment from the bad as to whether or not they'll replace him before their performance at this year's Rock In Rio festival on May 30th
A greatest hits album is currently being advertised on television. Buy it for your mum instead of sodding Dido or that wanky jazz twenty-something, please.
