Cesar Gueikian of Gibson had this to say,"As Gibson TV continues to grow as a channel dedicated to music and music culture, having the icon Kirk Hammett share his stories and journey with my producers Todd Harapiak and Mark Agnesi, is a privilege for all music fans around the world.

"Kirk has inspired generations of hard rock and heavy metal guitar players, me included, to pick up a guitar and learn how to play his shredding guitar lines and Metallica riffs.

"I am grateful that in this episode of 'Icons,' Kirk goes beyond his inspiring guitar playing and invites all of us to immerse ourselves in the story behind this Icon. I can't wait for all the Metallica fans to watch this new episode of 'Icons' with the ripper, Kirk Hammett." Watch the episode below:
