Metallica frontman James Hetfield is putting the 1967 Camaro that he drove in the video for “I Disappear” up for auction, via eBay.com, starting Monday (September 22). Hetfield, who has owned and driven the car for three years, received it as a gift after the band finished filming the video. Money raised from the sale of the car will be donated to school music programs.
Metallica has been nominated for an American Music Award in the category of favorite alternative artist, along with Coldplay and Linkin Park. The band will perform at the awards show, which will be broadcast from L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (November 16), at 8 p.m.
The band will tour South America from October 25 to November 1, with stops in Argentina, Chile, and Brazil.
