NEWSTED AND THE ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME

Some interesting reports of Jason Newsted’s participation in Metallica’s performance at the induction ceremony for the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Jason, Lars and Kirk have already been quoted as saying that Jason will indeed perform with the band.

Now, it seems that Metallica will perfom two songs during the ceremony… both with Jason Newsted on bass. Rob will not play with the band… but should be present at the actual induction, as will Cliff’s father, Ray Burton.

Billboard states (about Lars’ call to Jason) He said, ‘We want you to rock with us,’ ” Newsted recalls. Ulrich told him that Robert Trujillo, Metallica’s current bassist “‘is not gonna play at all. we want you to play.’ And my first question was, ‘How’s Robert with that? How does he feel about that? I don’t want to create any kind of negative anything. I want this all to be proper.’ and… The group plans a sound check/rehearsal for Friday night, then will play “something old (and) something new” on Saturday — though both songs will be from Newsted’s tenure with the band. “One louder than the next — that’s all I know,” he says with a laugh.

Rolling Stone has a similar report, but adds… Does that mean Newsted likes Death Magnetic?
