A bamboo screen will shade out regrowth, and it will likely look the worse for it.
Privet may be a little common, but it really is great stuff. But if you really don't like, I'd swap it out for another evergreen. At least privet is semi-evergreen, and gives privacy.
Privet will take quite a beating, so fastening something to it won't be a death knell.
