JASON NEWSTED is strumming a goodbye tune to his Walnut Creek, CA, home. The former Metallica member has listed his modern farmhouse in the Bay Area for $2.89 million. And you don't have to be a head banger to appreciate this rockin' five-bedroom home - the melodious mansion has been updated with custom touches. Inside the spacious place, you'll find hardwood floors, designer fixtures, and custom moldings. The current decor also shines - bold hues and floral motifs run throughout the interior spaces. The new, cool kitchen features bright Moroccan tile and high-end Elise appliances. The kitchen opens out to a casual dining nook that looks out to the patio. In addition, the 6,720-square-foot spread features a living room, formal dining room, and family room. Upstairs, the master suite comes with a balcony, fireplace, and updated bathroom. On the third floor, find a bonus room that could be used as an office, workout space, or media room. A finished basement on the lower level completes the layout.

Metallica frontman and very longtime HardRadio friend JAMES HETFIELD has donated his collection of ten highly regarded custom cars to the Petersen Automotive Museum. The announcement was made at the museum's annual press conference at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, along with news on the Petersen's upcoming "Hypercars" exhibit, and the institution's acquisition of 30 vehicles new to the facility's collection. Additionally, Hetfield was named a Founding Member of the museum, an honor reserved for its most generous donors. His collection includes Voodoo Priest, based on a '37 Lincoln Zephyr, a '36 Auburn roadster named Slow Burn, a Delahaye inspired '34 Packard, Aquarius, a '36 Ford in bare metal called Iron Fist, a purple '56 Ford F-100 pickup truck, and three cars by custom fabricator Rick Dore: Black Pearl, a custom 1948 Jaguar, a '52 Olds named Grinch, and Skyscraper, a 1953 Buick Skylark. The Hetfield cars will go on display next February. Visit the Petersen Automotive Museum's official website at petersen.org.
