Handwritten lyrics and original album art from heavy metal's halcyon days are set to go under the hammer at the biggest hard rock auction ever.

Memorabilia linked to acts like Ozzy Osbourne, Anthrax, Metallica and VAN HALEN will be sold off next month (06NOV04) as part of a 100-lot auction held at New York's Hard Rock Cafe.

Highlights will include original album cover artwork from Metallica's MASTER OF PUPPETS, the 1989 MTV MUSIC AWARDS gong given to GUNS N' ROSES for their SWEET CHILD O' MINE video and handwritten lyrics by late Metallica star CLIFF BURTON.
