Brett is a guitarist, to say the least about him. If you ever go to see the band Built to Spill, he would be the (usually) bearded player (usually) to the left of Doug Martsch.

Here are some interviews with the Brett:
It's Brett's birthday today….(being Bastille Day as well... his birthday would have to be some day known for chopping off the heads of royalty.)
