Not being in Metallica anymore kinda sucks


17 years ago he was smearing feces all over himself in a music video, as Metallica were reinventing themselves as artsy fartsy softer rock guys. Now things aren’t any better, as Jason would probably prefer smearing shit again all over himself for Metallica, rather than be thrown off the stage by a crazy fan.

Happens at around 3:08

It’s not like Jason isn’t used to falling during concerts, though.


Fourth Metallica anniversary night – the recap

So the fourth and final anniversary show has been recapped by Metallica in a 45 minute video. You can see Dave Mustaine jam along with the guys and alongside their first and second bassists — Rob McGovney and Jason Newsted.

Jason even sings during “Seek & Destroy,” reminding me why I miss him so much as ‘Tallica‘s bassist.

Pretty good video, some of my friends went to these shows and said they had a blast.They have another recap online, by the way, in case you forgot.

Sadly, Metallica hasn’t formally invited me to this event to document it for DoM, so I haven’t gone. Maybe on their 40th birthday.

Oh by the way, remember Beyond Magnetic? You know, the digital release that sold twice as much as Lulu? They’re releasing it as a CD on January 31, probably just to spite Lou Reed.


I miss Jason Newsted

“Harvester of Sorrow,” with Jason… I miss the old days.


Whocares? I do and so should you

Do you care that Whocares have released some singles details? Perhaps you will if I were to tell you that Whocares is the name of the new music project staring none other than the legends that are Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath etc), Jon Lord, Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden), Mikko “Linde” Lindström (HIM) and Jason Newsted (Metallica). Seriously, this must be the superest super group ever. Like Superman on speed.

Whocares will release both ‘Out Of My Mind‘ and ‘Holy Water’ on  May 6: The CD single will also contain the video clip of ‘Out Of My Mind’ and a 40-minute documentary that displays Gillan’s and Iommi’s involvement with the Armenia cause over the years.

Check out the trailer above, and read Blabbermouth for more information.


Newsted got a job

At least a job that doesn’t involve flipping burgers…

I kid, I kid, I love Jason… Well, loved him more when he was relevant, but… Ok, enough hasbeen jokes. He’s made an appearance ‘all-star’ band (we told you about earlier) whose name pretty much sums up how we feel about it.

“Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and Mikko “Linde” Lindström, guitarist for the Finnish “love metal” band HIM, have recorded guest appearances on the track “Out Of My Mind” from the all-star charity project Whocares — featuring Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi and Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan alongside keyboardist Jon Lord (Deep Purple, Whitesnake ) and drummer Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden).”

IDONTREALLYCARE, but to be honest, it doesn’t sound as bad as other ‘all-star bands’ like let’s say Velvet Revolver. Will probably have to check out their song(s) anyway when I’ll post about them in the future, so color me mildly interested.  If you’re a skinny Asian chick with huge tits, color me green and do me like I’m Godzilla.
