About Shannon Hamilton

Shannon Hamilton is also known as “Hammy” by his close friends. Born in Ashland, Ohio and he currently resides in West Salem, Ohio with my wife, Laura and daughter, Allysa. My love of music started when I found a copy of Black Sabbath’s 1973 album, “Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath’.
Music has always been a strong presence in my life starting as a young kid. My first concert was Iron Maiden at the age of 15 in 1988 at The Richfield Coliseum. My enjoyment of music extends to every level from the national, regional and local scene in Cleveland, Ohio. I tend to lean toward the heavy side of music scene with my favorite bands being MUSHROOMHEAD, Pantera and White Zombie.
