The Strokes are one of the most influential NYC rock bands of all time. Along with his four other bandmates, Albert Hammond Jr. helped create a sound and a look that inspired countless bands since they released their flawless debut albumIs This Itin 2001. Since then, every member of the band has branched off to work on solo albums or side projects - but the chemistry and camaraderie of the Strokes is a powerful force. They always somehow gravitate back together to record another Strokes album. This week, Albert sits down to discuss the challenges of being a solo artist, his relationship with fame, and how surfing has taught him to appreciate being in the moment.
