Best Kirk Hammett Live Pictures

We never tire of looking at photos of Metallica. There is just something about the energy and intensity of the band that is so easily conveyed through photos. We recently shared some of our favorite live shots of James Hetfield, and now it’s time to check out the other axeman, Kirk Hammett.

Hammett is a shredder, plain and simple. Whether you’re listening to him display his ability or watching videos or staring at photos, one thing is obvious: this guy is a six-string master. While we could never create a collection that covers Hammett’s entire history with Metallica, we’ve picked a handful of some of our favorite photos showing the guitarist rocking out and having fun on-stage.
