The French electronic duo known as Daft Punk may be the ones responsible for many of the masks in the music business. Since 2001, they’ve diligently worn the robot-like helmets to keep their real faces out of the public eye. There aren’t too many photos of the pair without their helmets. In the silver helmet is 41 year old Thomas Bangalter. The gold helmet is 42 year old Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
It’s difficult to come across any photos of Buckethead without his white mask and KFC bucket. The 47 year old guitarist’s real name is Brian Patrick Carroll.
