Watch the Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr. Tackle His Wife’s Pickpocket

Plus, the band is in the studio again!

Albert Hammond Jr. must not have made it into this photo of the Strokes recording again (!) — because he was too busy being a stand-up citizen, good husband, and all-around badass. Stereogum first reported on released security footage of someone trying to steal from the guitarist’s wife, which was a big mistake on their part: Hammond Jr. (who provides amusing commentary) singlehandedly tackled the team of three men staging the operation, and got all of his lady’s “stuff” back. Watch the clip here, and check out an Instagram of all of them together in the studio.
