Kirk Hammett – Guitarist and Author?

Posted on June 21, 2012 AT 06:30am

Fans of Metallica’s lead guitarist, Kirk Hammett, are no strangers to his love of the occult and macabre. While it’s not only a topic he speaks on frequently during interviews, the musician also has several customized guitars, such as the one featured above, that pay homage to the genre. Hammett will be sharing his private stash of horror goodies by publishing his first book through Abrams Image this October. Too Much Horror Business: The Kirk Hammett Collection is a 9”X12” coffee table book featuring Hammett’s extensive and legendary personal collection of horror memorabilia. The 228 page hardback book will feature over 300 full color images from Hammett’s collection and words from the guitarist covering the role collecting has played in his life, as well as captions for specific featured items in the book.

Whether you are a fan of Metallica, who have sold 100 million albums worldwide or a horror nerd, Too Much Horror Business: The Kirk Hammett Collection will certainly be worth picking up.
