Albert`s father also dabbled in music in his own time, having a few hits, including “It Never Rains In Southern California” released in 1972. This had a huge influence on Albert himself, as he grew up listening to his father`s music, falling in love with it. When he was in his teen years, his parents sent him to Switzerland, in order to attend the Institut Le Rosey, a boarding school. It was there he met his future colleague, musician Julian Casablancas, with whom he continues to make music to the present day.
After Albert graduated from high school, he returned to USA, and enrolled at New York University`s Tisch School Of The Arts.While living in New York, he was Casablancas roommate and their friendship was crowned in 1998, as Albert joined Casablancas` band The Strokes as a guitarist.
The band`s first release was the 2001 EP entitled “The Modern Age”, which immediately garnered positive critics, and they soon received much needed attention from the record labels, and the band signed with RCA Records. Their first full length album was released in 2001, entitled “Is This It”; the album peaked at number two on the UK charts, and finished in 33rd place on the Billboard Top 200 in USA.
