Guitar World made history in Milan, Italy, on July 6, 2011, by getting Metallica’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Slayer’s Kerry King and Anthrax’s Scott Ian to pose for group photos — the first photos ever to feature all the guitarists of thrash metal’s Big Four tour.
The Big Four Poster Book presents eight of those incredible photographs on 16-by-22-inch posters suitable for wall hanging. Below, you'll find a photo gallery of outtakes from that photo session.
If you buy Guitar World DVD, you can get the Big Four Posterbook for $5! Be sure to use coupon code B4PSTRBK5.
Shot by legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin, these images celebrate five of metal’s greatest guitarists and the thrash metal tour of the century.
