Page Hamilton is a guitarist, singer and record producer, mostly noted for his work with alternative metal band Helmet. He was born on Wednesday, May 18, 1960 in Portland, Oregon, USA.
Biography and Career:
Most of his work has been in the heavy metal or hard rock styles, but Hamilton, who was trained in jazz guitar, has also worked in other genres. He is represented exclusively by Jim Phelan and Jerimaya Grabher at Global Positioning Services in Santa Monica, CA.
Raised in Medford, Oregon, Hamilton moved to New York to study jazz guitar in the early 1980s. While there, he "discovered distortion" and worked with composer Glenn Branca. Hamilton then joined Band of Susans for their Love Agenda album, after which he started Helmet.
Helmet recorded four albums in the 1990s:
Strap It On, Meantime, Betty, and Aftertaste. They had moderate chart success, with their last three albums reaching the Billboard top 100, but difficulty keeping his bandmates together caused them to disband in early 1998. After Helmet split up, Hamilton started Gandhi, and toured with David Bowie. About this time he recorded with Ben Neill.
In 2003, Hamilton and Charlie Clouser recorded the song "Throwing Punches" for the movie soundtrack, Underworld, which marks the first time the song was credited as a Page Hamilton track - mainly because it was about to be released as part of his "solo" album. However, when Hamilton restarted Helmet with an altered line-up in 2004, the song was released as part of the band's comeback album Size Matters.
Hamilton has also been involved in music production, most notably producing "Distort Yourself" by Gavin Rossdale's band Institute, Bullets and Octane's second album, In The Mouth Of The Young, released in 2006, and the Classic Case album Losing at Life.
Being born on May 18, Page is a Taurus.
