Remember a few weeks back we told you a drum lesson with Lars Ulrich was going up for charity auction? Well, the hammer has gone down and one lucky bidder has snapped up the hour-long tutorial - for a cool $35,000 (£21,800).

The Metallica man will give a private lesson to the winning bidder, as well as treating them to the full rock star treatment for the day, taking them to Metallica HQ for a nose around their studio and lunch.

Lars' lesson is one of a host of special lots going up for auction in aid of Andre Agassi's Foundation For Education. Other packages included dinner with Robin Williams and a trip to Grand Cayman with Agassi and Steffi Graf.
