November 5th, 2017, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett visited the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA – the site of his exhibition, “It’s Alive! Classic Horror and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection” – for a book signing. Amidst all the busy preparations for the event, Kirk Hammett sat down with Metal Magnitude to offer some insight into his ever-growing collection, and of course, some outlook on the Metallica front.
