That’s kind of cool. I mean, dude was a major part of the band for years. Why shouldn’t he?
I don’t think any fans’ll complain about Jason Newsted playing Metallica tracks on the road. It’s probably a highlight of the show.
I bet Staind’s Mike Mushok was instrumental in convincing Jason to play some old ‘Tallica tunes.
Over the weekend, Jason’s eponymous band played “Whiplash,” “Creeping Death,” and “My Friend of Misery.”
See some fan-shot footage from the show at the end of this post.
