11 Things Every Die-Hard 'Hamilton' Fan Wants You To Know
Huffington Post - about 1 year
"Hamilton" is a Broadway musical. More specifically, it is a wildly popular musical about "a scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America." That scrappy young immigrant from the Caribbean is the titular Alexander Hamilton, played by prolific composer/lyricist/rapper (also a MacArthur "Genius Grantee" and, swoon, the show's writer) Lin-Manuel Miranda.  On stage, Miranda is supported by a hyper-talented and racially diverse cast of singers, rappers and dancers who deftly act out the highs and lows of Founding Fathers-era America. Together, they offer an unlikely, hip-hop-inspired retelling of the United States' revolutionary history, punctuated by dramatic, character-driven stories of ambition and revenge, all driven by Miranda's serendipitous decision to read a Hamilton biography while on vacation. You might have caught wind of the show on the Grammys Monday night. Or, perhaps you've been listening to their album -- the first-ever cast album to hit No. 1 on the Billboa ...

Back when he led the Soft Boys, Robyn Hitchcock used to be the most convincing Syd Barrett disciple in the world.

Watch & Rock: HELMET - Gigantor (1995)
Kik Axe Music - almost 5 years
Back in 1995 (holy 17 years ago, Batman!) MCA released a fantastic compilation called SATURDAY MORNING: Cartoons' Greatest Hits. Produced by Ralph Sall for the Bulletproof Recording Company,  the album was a fantastic concept that has stood the test of time in our house. I'm going to take a deeper look at the album here on The Rock Father™ in the future, but for right now - watch & rock with HELMET and their slamming cover of the theme song to GIGANTOR. I believe that my toddler truly appreciates the breakdown that occurs at 1:17. I caught a wee bit of moshing, I think. Any child that is exposed to the works of Page Hamilton will have a bright future, indeed. Helmet Saturday Morning: Cartoons' Greatest Hits Gigantor Anime Music For Kids

    In 2014, Hamilton appeared on Linkin Park's sixth studio album The Hunting Party, which he provided additional vocals (on the chorus) and guitars on the song entitled "All for Nothing".
    More Details Hide Details The song was self-produced by Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson. Hamilton has been a major endorser of ESP Guitars since the early 1990s, and is best known for playing ESP Horizon guitars with either a Floyd Rose or Wilkinson tremolo, and DiMarzio Airzone pickups. He has also used instruments by PRS and G&L.

    Age 45
    In 2006 ESP announced a Page Hamilton signature model, featuring a single DiMarzio Airzone pickup and Wilkinson tremolo.
    More Details Hide Details In 2009, ESP announced a further signature model guitar, this time modeled after Page's own ESP Horizon Custom, featuring a distressed magenta finish emulating the original guitar's road wear and character and, again, a single DiMarzio Air Zone pickup. In an interview with Guitar Edge, Hamilton spoke about a version of his original ESP Horizon Custom from the 1980s: In the early days of Helmet, for amplification Hamilton used a complex setup including a Marshall JCM800 2204S head, vintage Orange/Matamp ORST head, and Harry Kolbe Preamps and Speakers. Later on, the Orange/Matamp was switched out for a vintage Fender Bandmaster. Since 1996, Hamilton started using VHT amplifiers and still uses them to this day under the Fryette name, and endorses the brand. Page Hamilton's current tour equipment:

    Meantime was the band's principal commercial success, being certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The album was well received by music critics and is seen as an influential metal record and earning a Grammy nomination in the Best Metal Performance category for 1993.
    More Details Hide Details Following Helmet's temporary dissolution, Hamilton formed another rock band, Gandhi, with former Liege Lord guitarist Anthony Truglio, John Andrews (guitar), Christian Bongers (bass), and Matt Flynn (later the drummer for Maroon 5). Though the band did not release any music officially, several demo songs were leaked. Many of these were later recorded for the Size Matters and Monochrome releases by Helmet. While still active with Helmet, Hamilton embarked on a career composing and performing music for film, working on movies including Heat, Titus, In Dreams, Catwoman, and Chicago Cab. Helmet also contributed to a number of movie soundtracks, including The Crow, Feeling Minnesota, Johnny Mnemonic, Saw 3, Underworld, and appearing in The Jerky Boys: The Movie (performing a cover of the Black Sabbath song "Symptom of the Universe"). Hamilton has also worked as a record producer, most notably producing the album Distort Yourself by former Bush singer Gavin Rossdale's band Institute. He has also produced albums for the bands Bullets and Octane (In the Mouth of the Young), Classic Case (Losing at Life) and Totimoshi.
