That’s not as cool as walking scurvy, but almost as deadly.
I’m kidding, folks. Jason Newsted will be just fine, but yes, the Newsted leader has fucking walking pneumonia, which means he won’t be playing much anytime soon.
He needs to rest.
The band will be forced to miss this week’s Gigantour dates in Canada, a press release says.
“I’d been feeling a bit under the weather while performing the most recent Gigantour shows, so I went to the doctor on my day off today and I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia,” writes Newsted online.
“So under doctor’s orders, I’m taking a week to rebuild… My apologies to our Canadian brothers and sisters in regions where we will not be appearing this week. I’m gonna work on keeping me alive so together we can keep the metal alive!”
Canada will never forgive you, Jason.
