Kirk Hammet

Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist for Metallica has become an avid surfer in the past few years and as the band is nearing completion on their upcoming album "Death Magnetic" is it possible Kirk and his wife Lani are thinking about business endeavors outside Metallica?

Hammett recently revealed he has had initial thoughts of starting a clothing line geared toward the surfing industry: "I've actually thought of a sportswear line, surf clothing line. I have the name and it's so good I'm not even going to tell you guys. But yeah, I have big plans. Whether they actually find the time to actually come to the surface remains to be seen."

Metallica are in the final stages of their highly anticipated album "Death Magnetic" which is set for release September 16th.

The band has enlisted the services of producer extraordinaire Rick Rubin and the band will be releasing the album as a box set dubbed 'The Coffin Box' which contains a Documentary DVD, bonus tracks and collectibles for their fans.

Metallica are currently touring Europe in support of "Death Magnetic".
