As we reported Friday (Nov. 16), Jason Newsted has reconnected with fans through a new website, but now the former Metallica bassist has laid out details of his musical comeback. In an appearance on the 'Friday Night Rocks' radio show, Newsted revealed that he's ready to rock more than just your Web browser.
Some of the biggest names in rock will converge on South America for the ‘Titans of Rock‘ tour. Among those already confirmed as part of the all-star lineup are Duff McKagan, Jason Newsted and Vince Neil.
Last night, Metallica kicked off their string of intimate 30th anniversary shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco, Calif., in smashing fashion featuring a never before heard track and several special guest appearances throughout the show.
When CJ Ramone was approached a decade ago about possibly replacing Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, he declined the chance even though he took Dee Dee Ramone’s spot in the final years of the legendary punk band the Ramones.
Ramone’s reason was simple: Touring with the metal band would not have been beneficial to his family, specifically his son Liam, who had been diagnosed with autism.
