METALLICA Guitarist To Publish First Book: 'Too Much Horror Business - The Kirk Hammett Collection' + Collectible Toys!
“This is my gift to all the other horror nerds out there who are just like me,” says Kirk, “it’s been made with great love for all the many characters and movies which guided me through childhood, into adulthood and which still keep me on track today.”
On June 23rd-24th, at Orion Music + More, the new annual festival founded by Metallica and taking place in Atlantic City, NJ, fans will see a preview of what’s to come in Too Much Horror Business. Hammett will be hosting Kirk’s Crypt and offering fans an extraordinary glimpse into his collection. More information on Kirk’s Crypt and Orion Music + More can be found by visiting www.orionmusicandmore.com.
In addition to "Too Much Horror Business", Hammett will also commence producing collectible items through his Kirk Von Hammett line, specifically toys. Each of the collectibles will be limited to only 500 pieces, with the first one being available on October 1st at www.kvhtoys.com. In the meantime, "Too Much Horror Business" t-shirts are now available, with other surprises due as the publishing date gets closer.
“I’ve spent my life collecting toys, so what could be more fun than making a series of toys which indulge my childhood fantasies AND which people can collect! “It’s more about fulfilling a huge ambition than anything else, and I hope I get the first one!”
