Helmet is back, with only its head intact

Hamilton says he briefly considered reaching out to Bogdan and Stanier last year, but figured there was zero chance of a happy reunion -- he isn't on speaking terms with either, and besides, both are involved with other projects (Bogdan is a lap-steel player, far removed from the hard-rock world, while Stanier pounds the skins for the Mike Patton-fronted Tomahawk). "I was so lucky to find Stanier and Bogdan back then -- those guys are monster players," he says. "But Helmet is my band. I write all the music and all the lyrics, and I was the one who found those guys, and there's nothing to say I couldn't find other guys. These guys are amazing players."

And not even a battered body can keep Hamilton on the sidelines any longer. "They've designed this waist-strap thing for me, so I can play guitar without it being too painful," he says, laughing. "But I can tough it out -- I wanna rock!"

Goldberg's back, minus half a bone and plus a few 
screws and a dead guy's tendon.
