Plans for a GUNS N' ROSES comeback are in chaos - because guitarist BUCKETHEAD has walked out on the band.

The musician - who wears a fried-chicken bucket on his head, as a stage trademark - grew tired after four years in the group without releasing any material.

The AXL ROSE-fronted rockers haven't released an album of new material since 1991, and there is still no sign of their long-awaited CHINESE DEMOCRACY LP.

They are signed to headline the ROCK IN RIO music festival in Lisbon, Portugal in May (04) but sources close to the band are unsure if they will have a new guitarist by then.

Buckethead is now expected to concentrate on solo material.
