On this episode I talk with Helmet guitarist and frontman Page Hamilton.
Page has worked with David Bowie and on numerous movie soundtracks such as Michael Mann's Heat and Collateral, The Kissing Booth, Saw and The Crow.
Page is a straight talker bursting with humility and I can safely say it was a real pleasure getting to know him.
I hope you like our conversation so please leave a comment if you like what you hear.
Born in Portland, Oregan. He studied guitar at the University of Oregan before moving to New York to study jazz guitar at the Manhattan School of Music.
Helmet were formed in New York in 1989.
Helmet has released eight studio albums and two compilation albums. After releasing their debut album, Strap It On (1990), on Amphetamine Reptile, Helmet signed to Interscope Records and released three albums for the label, including the highly successful Meantime (1992). Their next two albums ― Betty (1994) and Aftertaste (1997) ― were also successful, but did not match the critical or popular acclaim of Meantime. Helmet broke up in 1998, but reformed in 2004, and has since released four more albums ― Size Matters (2004), Monochrome (2006), Seeing Eye Dog (2010) and Dead to the World (2016). The band is currently working on their ninth studio album.
