Albert Hammond Jr

Best known as the Strokes' rhythm (and occasional lead) guitarist, Albert Hammond, Jr., is also the son of singer/songwriter Albert Hammond, whose hits include "It Never Rains in Southern California," "When I Need You," and "To All the Girls I've Loved Before." Born in Los Angeles, Hammond went to the prestigious Swiss boarding Le Institut le Rosey as a teenager, where he met future Strokes singer Julian Casablancas. When Hammond moved to New York City to attend New York University's film school in the late '90s, he reconnected with Casablancas, and the Strokes were born. While Casablancas is the band's chief songwriter, Hammond co-wrote Room on Fire's "Automatic Stop" and also wrote songs that appeared on the Strokes' 2001 tour video, In Transit. Hammond revamped and renamed these tracks and included them on his solo debut album, Yours to Keep, which featured bassist Josh Lattanzi and drummer Matt Romano as his main support. A host of indie celebrities, including Casablancas, Sean Lennon, Ben Kweller, Fountains of Wayne's Jody Porter, and the Strokes' manager, Ryan Gentles, also appeared on the album, which was released on Rough Trade in fall 2006 in the U.K. and early in 2007 on New Line in the U.S. Bassist Marc Philippe Eskenazi joined Hammond's band for 2008's ¿Como Te Llama?, which was released worldwide that summer. A 2009 stint in rehab and the Strokes' reunion -- which produced two albums, 2011's Angles and 2013's Comedown Machine -- meant that it took a few years before Hammond returned to his solo career. The 2013 EP AHJ featured some of his most focused singing and songwriting, and was released by Casablancas' Cult Records label. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Everyone Gets a Star sounds like Cake. Not sure why it isn't listed as a similar artist.

The Strokes' members spent too much time on their solo careers :(

Me and my friend were talking saying that the rhythm guitarist was probably was the least involved with the band. The next day I find this. Damn son.

psychicjunki e b y - p r o x y totally agree thought it almost blasphemes at first but honestly 'GCF' and 'in transit' are my two favorite songs by any artist right now and both his albums are solid front to back unlike like strokes (excluding room on fire) also much better than JC's solo stuff

So this dude's bio is all about his dad??

Wtf?

Your not kidding there Mr. Seth Chavez. I think I like Mr. Hammonds solo work better.

Before hearing this guy's stuff, I thought the Strokes' genius lay in the hands of Mr. Casablancas. This really opened my eyes to see how big a piece Albert plays in the making of Strokes music.

I like this quite a bit more than the Strokes. He has an 80s power pop vibe that I'm really digging. Good stuff.

He's good, himself - he doesn't need a DNA comment

Marc Phillippe Eskenazi plays guitar in Albert's band, not bass.

Everyone Gets a Star sounds like Built to Spill mixed with some Pedro the Lion. I really like this! I wasn't expecting much from a Strokes off-shoot. I might just check this album out.
