Guitar Player - April 2017 – Metallica

Regular price $4.99

The April issue of Guitar Player features Metallica

James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett have come a very, very long way from playing crap clubs in San Francisco's East Bay. They are wealthy men, their band sells gazillions of records and fills stadiums, and they own tons of cool instruments that many of us would die to have in our collections. But none of that matters when they plug in their guitars and play. This is a story about how passion can transcend accomplishment, and still-after years and years of success and tours and recording studios-drive those who love the guitar to get chills every time they pick up their instruments. These guys mean it, man! Bonus: Hammett talks about his acquisitions of Peter Green's "magic" Les Paul. (Spoiler Alert: He means to play it-not hide it in a display case.)
