Metallica’s Kirk Hammett Planning Follow-Up to ‘Too Much Horror Business’ Book

Kirk Hammett‘s love of horror movies is well documented and the Metallica guitarist says he already has plans for a follow-up to his book ‘Too Much Horror Business.’

The axeman showed off many of the items in his horror collection as part of the first book, but he has a different focus in mind for what will be his second book. “It’s going to be more based upon the pop culture of the ’60s and ’70s with a lot of hot rod culture and surf culture as well as monster and horror culture,” he tells Bloody-Disgusting.com. “There’ll be a lot of TV stuff, too, but all within collecting — toy collecting, artwork, posters and whatnot.”

However, it may be a while before we see the book. Hammett explained, “I said to myself that I have to give the next Metallica album priority. I’m going to wait until we’re two-thirds through the next Metallica album before I start work on the book. And so maybe the book will come out in the end of 2015, beginning of 2016, if the planet hasn’t blown up by then [laughs].”

The Hammett suggestion gives fans another hint on the new album timeline. He and Lars Ulrich recently granted an interview in which the drummer light-heartedly suggested that the disc would be released in a year with the first three digits ’201.’

That being said, Hammett concludes, “I’m definitely planning on doing another book and I haven’t started it yet, and I won’t start it until the end of this year.” The guitarist will next be seen at the FEAR FestEvil horror and music event in San Francisco this weekend.
