A Metallica fan paid $35,000 for an hour-long drumming lesson with Lars Ulrich.

The one-on-one class with The Heavy metal star was auctioned off for the huge sum as part of a charity fundraising scheme by tennis player Andre Agassi and his Foundation for Education.

Before the auction ended, bidders were told they would be treated to a rock star lifestyle for a day for pledging the highest amount.

The advert read: "Want to be a rock star for a day? This is the experience you never dreamed money could buy.

"You and your guest are headed to Metallica headquarters in San Francisco. Here you will meet the co-founder of one of the greatest rock bands of all time; Lars Ulrich.

"Lars will begin your unbelievable day with a tour of Metallica headquarters, which includes Metallica's recording studio, rehearsal space and home of their fan club. Once inside the studio, you will have the privilege of receiving a one-hour private drumming lesson from one of the greatest drummers of all time.

"After Lars shows you a thing or two, you and your guest will join him for a private lunch. Almost too extraordinary to believe!"

The 46-year-old drummer's gift was auctioned off during the Grand Slam for Children benefit gala at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas - which eventually collected over $8.5 million with the help of global stars.
