I'd gladly swap buckethead for any current member, bar axl of course
An empty shell seems so easy to crack.
Got all these questions.
Don't know who I could even ask.
So I'll just lie alone and wait for the dream.
Where I'm not ugly and you're looking at me.

Ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Buckethead reveals heart condition

By Sam Moore Oct 13, 2017
   
The musician said that his heart "beats out of rhythm", admitting that "even walking across a room is difficult"

Buckethead has revealed that he has been diagnosed with a heart condition.

The prolific musician – who has released over 300 albums, collaborated with the likes of Iggy Pop and Mike Patton, and notably served as a guitarist for Guns N’ Roses between 2000 and 2004 – revealed the condition during a recent appearance on the Coming Alive podcast.

Asked about the hardest thing that he’s ever gone through, Buckethead – AKA Brian Patrick Carroll – opened up about the diagnosis.

“I have a heart problem where my heart beats out of rhythm. It’s been doing it for a long time, but recently it kicked up and became really intense,” he said. “I didn’t know what was going on – I just tried to deal with it and let it do what it did. But it got really intense, so I went to the doctor and they said, ‘You’re on the verge of having a stroke.’

“They suggested I had an ablation, where they go in and freeze your heart. It’s supposed to do something with the nerves, because they said my heart was fine and it could be a genetic thing – they didn’t really know. I had that procedure and it didn’t really stop it and I’m still dealing with it.”

“It’s been really difficult because it’s scary,” Buckethead added. “Even walking across a room is difficult. Luckily the medication I’m thankful for, because it’s kept it from going berserk, but it’s still pretty intense.

“I’m letting this thing sort of exist in me and I can’t really escape it. I’m always aware of my heart beat or the intensity of my heart beat. It definitely scares me, but it’s also doing a lot of good because now I better do all the things I want to do – and I’ve been doing a lot of stuff. I feel an urgency now.

“I could be gone tomorrow,” he concluded. “Anybody could be gone, but that’s a heavy experience. I want to play right now, and I want to play that experience.”

Buckethead, I was told on a number of occasions, doesn’t do interviews. Since I remembered him doing robot dances and nunchuck moves while onstage with GNR, I tried to think outside the box and offered him the opportunity to express his thoughts through a cartoon, a napkin sketch, an interpretive dance or whatever he wanted to do — but that didn’t work either. (The only interview he's given recently was for a self-help podcast, on which he revealed that he recently underwent surgery for a heart condition. A representative for his booking agency, American Artists, tells us he's doing fine.)
