Baseball may be a selective sport when it comes to honoring the greats, but at the MLB All-Star Party, thrown at NYC's Hiro Ballroom earlier this month courtesy of MLB, 2K Sports, Nintendo Wii, and Spin, everyone was an MVP -- especially Strokes guitarist-gone-solo performer Albert Hammond, Jr.

Albert kicked out the jams with his ace backing band for an enthusiastic crowd, impressing equally with his power-pop songcraft and his neatly dressed style. Check out video of Hammond crooning and howling (alternately, not at the same time) through "Everyone Gets a Star," from 2006's solo debut Yours to Keep, as well as ¿Como te Llama? cuts "Miss Myrtle" and "G Up."

Now Watch This:
"Miss Myrtle"
"G Up"
