ABC Columbia: Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett talks about his ‘It’s Alive!’ exhibit at CMA
‘It’s Alive!’ showcases over 100 pieces from the private collection of Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist in the band Metallica. Hammett said he’s been growing his collection for the past 35 years. “I’ve always been into this type of stuff, ever since I was 5 years old,” said Hammett. “As I got older, and I started getting a steady source of income from that, I started collecting this stuff intently.” The pieces of art include movie posters, props, toys, guitars and more from horror and sci-fi movies.
