Kirk Hammett – Kirk Lee Hammett is the lead guitarist and contributing songwriter for the heavy metal band Metallica and has been a member of the band since 1983. Before joining Metallica he formed and named the band Exodus, then joined Metallica as their first permanent lead guitarist. In 2003, Hammett was ranked 11th on Rolling Stone's list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. In 2009, Hammett was ranked number 15 in Joel McIver's book The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists. A child prodigy, he first focused on his musical aspirations after receiving a Les Paul guitar at age eight from his father on Christmas Day followed by an electric guitar one year later for his birthday. He joined his first band Cry For Dawn also known as "The Howling Dog" that same year with whom he performed cover songs during high school parties but never recorded or played live shows; instead playing original music with friends Greg Handevidt and Mike Montgomery in "M-80". Post-graduation saw him focus entirely on music, moving to Los Angeles to pursue opportunities within its burgeoning underground death metal scene which ultimately provided little more than disappointment due to lack of success between 1987 -- 1988 before calling it quits upon returning home six months later until forming Exodus soon thereafter alongside former M-80 rhythm section Tom Hunting/Gene Hoglan respectively along with bassist Mike Butler (the latter two now currently part of Megadeth).
