Kirk Hammett, the wah-loving shredder of thrash icon, Metallica, is a huge horror fan. Most metalheads already know that. Well, he loves it so much, that he’s kicking it up a notch with his own horror convention. Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil will begin February 6-8 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. Guests will be treated to tours of his insane horror collection, meet and greet, autographs, panel discussions, and some killer metal bands. Don’t hold me to that last part, but I’m sure Kirk will book some great music for everyone.
Kirk released a coffee table book last year, Too Much Horror Business,
that shares his extensive, and I mean extensive, horror memorabilia collection. Still the coolest member of the band, Kirk is spending his hard-earned cash on horror toys while James and Lars collect the tears of children.
Go see Kirk. He’s awesome.
