Paget has been with Bullet for My Valentine since their formation in 1998. He plays alongside Matt Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jamie Mathias (bass, backing vocals) and Michael Thomas (drums).
He has released five albums with Bullet for My Valentine: 2005's The Poison, 2008's Scream Aim Fire, 2010's Fever, 2013's Temper Temper and 2015's Venom. They have also released the Bullet for My Valentine and Hand of Blood EP's, both in 2004.
He was about 17 years old when he got his first guitar—a 3/4 size classical guitar. He couldn't even tune the guitar for a month. His cousin came to his house and helped him tune the guitar. Then he started to learn some chords from the little booklet that came with the guitar. The first song he ever learned on guitar was "Polly" by Nirvana, off the band's 1991 album Nevermind. He used to play drums when he studied music at Bridgend College, where he met the members who would form Jeff Killed John, later to be known as Bullet For My Valentine.
Michael Paget used to play many guitars and was endorsed by ESP Guitars in 2008. He has a signature ESP guitar, as well as two signature ESP LTD guitars. His preference is his ESP Michael Paget V.
