A History of the Bucket Hat

Reni of The Stone Roses (1989)

Drummer Alan "Reni" Wren of the Manchester rock band The Stones Roses was seldom seen without his bucket hat during the the Ecstasy-fueled "Madchester" scene of the late 1980s. Sometimes Reni's bucket hat was clean white; sometimes he wore a paint-spattered model in homage to Jackson Pollock. It was thought Reni had hung up his hat for good, before, in 2013, the drummer dusted off his bucket as the Roses reunited to play Coachella.
