Two former members of Metallica were part of this year's Gigantour 2013 — Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine and Newsted's Jason Newsted. As a result, fans were hoping the guys would — at some point — take the stage together to run through one or two tunes from the old days.
Jason Newsted and his band, Newsted, are streaming a new song — "Ampossible" — and you can check it out below. The song is from the band's debut full-length album, Heavy Metal Music, which will be released August 6.
At their June 23 Hellfest show in Clisson, France, Canada's Voivod were joined by a pair of special guests. In the 12-minute video below, you'll see former Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo join the band for a cover of Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine," one of the highlights of Floyd's early Syd Barrett era. Then, at around the 7:06 mark, Voivod are joined by their former bassist, Jason Newsted, for "Voivod."
It’s time to get metaled up. VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming, That Metal Show is returning for its 12th season. The hard rock and heavy metal talk show hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine kicks off the latest season 11 p.m. ET/PT June 1.
Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted walked away from one of the world's biggest bands to explore his own music. In the process, he worked with the progressive metal veterans Voivod and played with Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and many others.
Be sure to Catch Newsted, Hysteria and Christian Martucci at the official Revolver Golden Gods Pre-Party on Wednesday, May 1. Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and Newsted will take the stage at 10 p.m. Check out the complete schedule below!
