Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett never seems to stop working, and luckily for fans, it sounds like he plans to keep working for at least another 20 years!

He says Metallica has no plans to retire. He said people may get to a point in their lives and careers when they just want to hang up their guitar, but fans really will never 'let' them retire. They'll always remind you of who you are and what you've done, so you might as well keep doing it.

In the meantime, Hammett is staying busy writing and releasing his first book and filming a 3D movie with Metallica. And can fans expect another Orion Music + More Festival? Hammett says to count on it, even bigger and better than the first.
