That’d be both cool and weird.
I mean, I understand Jason Newsted playing old Metallica tunes with his new band, Newsted, but to do one with Mustaine.
Newsted is perhaps best known for his work with Metallica. But Dave Mustaine is clearly best known for his work with Megadeth.
His time in Metallica was a blip, relatively. Yet, the upcoming Gigantour may boast a collaboration between Mustaine and Newsted.
In a new interview with SkullsNBones.com, Newsted said “There is a chance that Mustaine and I will bust out some old Metallica that he was a part of. There is a chance. It has been talked about.”
But it is not set in stone.
“Whatever happens for sure, I don’t know [laughs], but I’m willing to throw down ‘Phantom Lord.’ Actually, whatever he calls out, I’m gonna throw down.”
