Here’s the statement Kirk shared about the photo:
“Alright, fine. #topnine2019 – so what I’m getting here is that unless I’m wearing my fantastic hat, you’d rather not see me by myself…”
In the first photo, Kirk was with his old bandmate Cliff Burton, who died on September 27, 1986. Also, the other photos are included Jason Newsted, a former bandmate, famous actor Johnny Depp, and Slayer legend Tom Araya.
