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.
