Page Hamilton (born May 18, 1960 in Portland, Oregon) is a singer and guitarist. Most of his work has been in the heavy metal or hard rock styles, but Hamilton has an experimentalist streak, and has worked in other genres.

Raised in Medford, Oregon, Hamilton moved to New York to study jazz guitar. While there, he "discovered distortion" and joined Band of Susans. Hamilton worked with composer Glenn Branca, after which he started Helmet.

Helmet's albums included Strap It On, Meantime, Born Annoying, Betty, and Aftertaste.

After Helmet split up in 1999, Hamilton started Gandhi, and toured with David Bowie. About this time he recorded with Ben Neill

He recorded an album Zulutime with Caspar Brötzmann, played guitar on Joe Henry's Trampoline, and wrote some music for the movie Heat.

He has also made appearances on "Unbeliever" by Therapy? and "No, You Don't" by Nine Inch Nails.

Hamilton generally uses ESP guitars when performing live, as well as VHT amplifiers.

Hamilton restarted Helmet (with an altered line-up) in 2004, and they released the album Size Matters.

Hamilton has also done production work, including producing "Distort Yourself" by Institute, the new band started by Gavin Rossdale of Bush.
