Slash was named that by a friend's father. The meaning of the name was because he couldn't sit still. I dunno why he picked that, but its pretty damn cool.

Synyster Gates is probably the most homo stage name to ever be conceived. Thank freakin' God Guitar World didn't include that stage name because that's the gayest piece of shit I've ever herd. Anyways, just to clarify how Buckethead received his stage name, I thought I'd share this: Buckethead was watching one of the classic Michael Myers horror films, and was suddenly inspired and intrigued by his facial features. After the film, Bucket ran to the nearest costume shop he could find and bought himself a Michael Myers mask. At home, his family was eating a dinner consisting of multiple food confections from KFC. As he was throwing out the empty bucket, he suddenly felt the urge to adorn the bucket atop his head. While he was wearing the bucket, he quickly ran and got the recently purchased mask and covered it over his face. As he an to the mirror to see how odd he looked, it struck him, he was going to be called "Buckethead" as his stage persona. As you can see, the name stuck, and Brian Carroll was from then on, known as Buckethead to the public. Hope this helps!
