Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarist Buckethead signs multi album deal with Stray Records. Dogday Entertainment announces the launch of 2 new labels.

Oakland, CA – January 5, 2001 – On the heels of a recent announcement heralding his addition to the new Guns ‘N’ Roses line-up, guitarist Buckethead, has just signed a multi-album recording contract with Bay Area based Stray Records. He is expected to begin work on the first of his Stray releases after conclusion of tour support for the latest GNR release.

Buckethead first came to prominence after the release of his wildly successful 1991 LP Giant Robot. The experimental album was heralded as a break through guitar release, while his now famous fried chicken bucket helmet and porcelain facemask became a calling sign. Over the next 10 years, Bucket would record over eight albums, including his critically acclaimed 1998 solo release Colma, which led Guitar Player Magazine to describe him as one of the “Top 10 guitar trailblazers”. Buckethead’s list of credits include participation in the groups El Stew and Praxis, as well as collaborations with the likes of Bootsy Collins, DJ Disk, Bernie Worrel, Iggy Pop, Pharaoh Sanders, and John Zorn among others. When asked about his upcoming project with Stray, Buckethead said he was excited about “the opportunity to work with a cutting edge label which allows me to deviate from formulaic rock guitar”.
