Kirk Hammett - Page 4
Legendary thrashers Anthrax have been busting out some mind-blowing surprises lately. On Wednesday night (March 27), Anthrax brought both legendary guitarist Slash and iconic Public Enemy rapper Chuck D onstage on Los Angeles. Now comes news that last night in San Francisco, Anthrax were joined by Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett for an explosive live performance of AC/DC's 'T.N.T.'
Metallica's Kirk Hammett is making the rounds showing off his 'Too Much Horror Business - The Kirk Hammett Collection' book of horror memorabilia, but during a stop in San Francisco to promote his page-turner, he worked in some music for those in attendance as well. Hammett welcomed Death Angel as guest performers at the event and joined them for a set.
Kirk Hammett has so many beautiful guitars. While he plays everything from Gibson Les Pauls to Jackson Flying Vs, his collection of axes stands out when he picks up his ESP custom guitars. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that his custom guitars display his other passion besides Metallica: horror movies...
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.
On Sept. 25, iconic Metallica axeman Kirk Hammett released his first book, 'Too Much Horror Business,' which chronicles his massive horror movie memorabilia collection.
