Hammett's forthcoming book Too Much Horror Business examines his lifelong passion thoroughly and with as much fervor as he speaks on the subject. The legendary guitarist's understanding of horror is inspiring and thought-provoking as he offers a guided tour of his impressive collection of genre artifacts. He tells the story in captivating fashion, matching the rhythm with which he plays guitar. He remains one of history's best guitarists, and one reason is his diverse knowledge of all art forms - including horror.

For the past three years, Hammett has spent his down time at home and in dressing rooms working on his first book, "Too Much Horror Business", which comes out in October. The title might imply a treatise on his time with Metallica, but the coffee-table tome actually catalogs his collection of horror movie memorabilia.
