Rolling Stone: Kirk Hammett Talks Seeing Metallica Before He Joined the Band
Kirk Hammett looks back on his career — including the time he played in Exodus before joining Metallica — in Gibson TV’s upcoming Icons interview. In a preview clip, Hammett recalls seeing interest in Metallica seem to blow up overnight in San Francisco, going from a gig with 15 people to a packed house in 1982 or 1983 as the thrashers’ legend spread. The full interview will be available on Gibson TV’s YouTube page Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET.
