An Eddie Van Halen guitar sells at auction for nearly $4 million


Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. One guitar collector must have got it bad, got it bad, got it bad, because the iconic guitar played by Eddie Van Halen in the music video for "Hot For Teacher" just sold at auction for nearly $4 million.

The lot also included a pair of white gloves and a straitjacket from the video, so the lucky buyer won't be no uptown fool. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
