Albert Hammond, Jr. is here for you. The Strokes guitarist is prepping an excellent new solo album (Momentary Masters, out July 31) and hopped on the Alt In Our Stars podcast ready to give advice. Topics included (but were not limited to) Snapchatting, scuba diving, men’s fashion, and how to get him to talk to talk to you on Twitter. For the record he now knows that being called “dad” is a good thing.
Albert spoke about how all these positive influences (along with, you know, music) helped him emerge from some dark times five years back. He’s full of inspiration, which shows in his bravery to swim with sharks or get creative with his Converse laces.
