For Whom The [Jingle] Bell Tolls

Our Rock 'n' Roll Santa for 2011 is none other than Metallica's Kirk Hammett, who lends a distinctly metal vibe to our December catalog cover. We spent an afternoon with Kirk at Metallica's San Francisco rehearsal space, where he graciously spoke to our video team about being a long-time fan of Musician's Friend, his relationship with ESP Guitars (makers of the Kirk Hammett HG-2 Ouija Signature axe he's holding on the December catalog cover), and his signature Dunlop KH95 Crybaby. And lest we forget, he also mentioned a thing or two about what the mighty Metallica is up to, in case you were wondering. Click on the Video tab above to watch the full interview now!
