About The Artist
One of the most talented and well known guitarists of the past few decades, Kirk Hammett has been at the forefront of the music scene time and time again with his timeless talent and easily recognizable riffs. Born in 1962 San Francisco, California, Kirk Hammett had an ordinary childhood, with his love of music compelling him to buy a guitar at 16. From there he formed a band known as "Exodus" in 1980, marking his beginning into the fledgling but burgeoning thrash genre of metal music. He was involved in Exodus for a couple years before joining up with Metallica and becoming their lead guitarist as well as a songwriter. He joined up after the recording for their first album was finished, so he simply played the notes that he was supposed to, but that was definitely going to change afterwards. Doing incredibly well in playing the songs from the first album, Kirk grew to perform some of the most well known riffs and guitar work seen throughout Metallica's lengthy history, making him one of the most successful guitarists around. His work on Metallica's albums "Master of Puppets", "the Black Album", "Load", and others showed his musical prowess and just how far he could take his musical ability.
While joining up with Metallica before their first album was released, all of the tracks had already been written and laid out, leaving Kirk to only have to play the parts that were written for him, and doing so with incredible skill. After the release and tour for their debut album "Kill 'Em All", Kirk was able to strut his stuff and show what he was truly capable of on their second album "Ride The Lightning". From there his work became prominent in the metal and thrash world, eventually permeating into the mainstream culture as well. While his work on "Ride The Lightning" was stellar, it was with the riffs and guitar work that was put into place on "Master of Puppets" that really drew in audiences from all over, wanting to hear more and more of the amazing guitar player that Metallica had in their possession.
