Daft Punk Thomas Bangalter removes helmet at beach

Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter removes his helmet at the beach -- OMG! Since the Grammy's there has been an obsession with Daft Punk and what the guys behind the helmets really look like. On Jan. 29, US Weekly posted a photo of Bangalter at the beach -- and no, he wasn't dressed as a robot.

Although the picture is old (snapped last October in Miami), it's practically going viral. As previously reported, Bangalter and his other half, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, don't want their "real" looks to be part of any discussion. While a lot of musicians have an image to uphold, these guys want the focus to be on their talent and their music -- so they have chosen to wear disguises when making public appearances.

Sure Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter removes his helmet at the beach -- he's enjoying himself on a not-so-private vacation... but these guys have to realize that the paparazzi will catch them sans-costumes and their faces will eventually be associated with their music. That's the name of the fame game... at least, that's what it has become.
