Former Helmet frontman/guitarist Page Hamilton has tentatively been tapped to handle the guitar duties for Silverchair on their upcoming live dates due to a arthritic hand ailment being suffered by Daniel Johns. In related news, recent rumors have been circulating of a possible Helmet reunion with a few new members in the lineup, though no official word has come down on either subject as of yet.
