Metallica guitarist to appear at Comic-Con

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett will be making an appearance at San Diego’s Comic-Con convention this Friday.

Hammett will be on hand to sign "a few pre-determined cool thingies” pertaining to his forthcoming book, "Too Much Horror Business - The Kirk Hammett Collection."

The guitarist will be at the Tokyo Toy Booth #5336 in Hall G from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

In addition to the above details, Metallica posted the following:

“A word to the wise...this will ONLY be open to those who ALREADY HAVE CONVENTION CREDENTIALS and those who have ALREADY REGISTERED via our "cryptic" sign-up last week, but if even if you DIDN'T get in the sign-up, if you have your badge, drift on by the TOKYO TOY BOOTH and eyeball the Too Much Horror Business action, organized by our old friend Pushead who may be lurking around!”

"Too Much Horror Business - The Kirk Hammett Collection" will be released in October via Abrams Images.

Documenting Hammett's love of all things horror and the legendary collection of horror memorabilia he has amassed over the years, "Too Much Horror Business" is a 228-page, hardback, large-format coffee-table book featuring well over 300 full-color images from Kirk's private collection and exclusive set photography by Mark Leialoha and Joe Gibbs.

There will be three extensive conversations with writer Steffan Chirazi covering the importance of collecting in Hammett's life from childhood, plus written captions by Kirk for many of the items displayed in the book.

Last month, the inaugural edition of Metallica’s Orion Music + More presented Kirk’s Crypt, a showcase of his passion for all things horror - vintage film posters, movie props, collectables and more.
