Albert Hammond Junior

After an absence of nearly 5 years, The Strokes recently released their fourth album 'Angles'.


I was glancing at the magazine rack in the supermarket and noticed that they were on the cover of a music magazine, with a seemingly new, bald, member. Intrigued, I took a closer look and with horror realized that this person was none other than guitarist Albert Hammond Junior, who previously boasted an almost afro like mass of dark curly hair.


I am not the only one in shock at this, as there is a facebook group mourning the loss of his hair.


Looking back though, the signs of slight balding have always been there, but were often disguised by the unruly style he wore.


In 2009 he made a guest appearance on 'Gossip Girl' in which he sported a proud skinhead, so I am a bit behind the times with this one.


He is suffering extreme hairline recession but there's no sign of a bald patch as of yet.


His father has been a hugely successful singer songwriter since the 60s. A quick look and it appears he still has an amazing head of hair at the age of 66, assuming it is real of course.


It must be highly distressing when both your bandmates as well as your own father all have more hair than you, and I wouldn't be surprised if it played a part in Albert's spiralling descent into drug use and subsequent stint in rehab.

  1. In newer pics, it's worse and really gray. Wiki'd him to see how old he was and was shocked he's only in his early 30s! It's saddening how old it makes him look, and I have to agree I think it's drug related. His hair and face aged at an unreal rate in a decade.

  2. 4. Young women went to work in factories. Older women darned socks for soldiers. Families grew vegetables in gardens. Everyone felt the scarcity and the personal cost of war in at least some small way. When the draft was our principal means of assembling and training our Armed Forces, even celebrities like Elvis Presley or Joe DiMaggio were called to assist the war effort. coach outlet store online The transition to the volunteer Army didn't do away with warfare, but it did ensure that the responsibility fell on a far smaller and less representative segment of the population mainly minority and poor communities with little resources or opportunities. Requiring women to register for the selective service isn't going to bring back this shared burden or sense of national commitment, but at the very least it will set the expectation that no one, not even Kylie Jenner, is exempt from service should the need arise. And maybe, just maybe, if everyone were subject to the same rules, we'd put a little more thought into when and where we go to war.

    5. They suddenly realize that they can influence men, sway opinions, and gain significant advantages through flirtation and body language. So who can blame them when they start to use this new found power in potentially destructive ways? I've come across plenty of anecdotal evidence that young women have a hard time navigating the dress codes of their offices when they first begin their careers. They're often reluctant to let go of the gimmicks that earned them so much positive attention in college, not realizing that the boardroom requires a different wardrobe and a different skill set.

    There is nothing feminine or alluring about a military uniform. To the contrary, military hair and uniform regulations seemed designed to keep any emphasis on sexuality out of the organization. Young women are seen as soldiers. They are expected to act professionally and to perform their jobs to standard. They do not wear nail polish Coach Outlet Store Online or glitter or even slenderizing pantsuits. If they want to be noticed, they must do so through intellect, creativity, and effort.

  9. This approach has strained relations with Europe, and with Ukraine itself. Further, the Kremlin is now responsible for proving to Crimeans, Russians and Ukrainians that Crimea is better off as a part of Russia than with Kiev. Doing somay require hefty investmentsat a time when other regions, like the northern Caucasus, also need federal subsidies whileRussia faces Western sanctions and its economy is growing only modestly..

    The characters do a lot of running and flying cinco de mayo shirts but are always up against the headwinds of vacuous cliches and hollow wisecracks. One character says to another: "Ussey dil nahi, Dell khol ke dikhao." The computer screen that the camera turns to on cue reveals an incriminating surveillance video that is meant to carry the story forward. Product placement has never had it so easy bruno mars shirt in a kodak black shirts Bollywood potboiler.
