Mustaine and Newsted to Play Metallica's 'Metal Militia' Live
Although Newsted are currently off the Gigantour bill due to frontman Jason Newsted's walking pneumonia diagnosis, the bassist/singer might be in for the ultimate metal return. After wishing Jason a speedy recovery, Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine confirmed that the stage is set for a performance of Metallica's early classic "Metal Militia" once he gets back. "I hope you are feeling better Jason," Mustaine tweeted. "We miss you and are ready to do 'Metal Militia' when you get back." The talk about two former Metallica members jamming one of the band's early tunes began about two months ago. Megadeth mainman then specifically asked the fans which song would they like to hear, listing "Ride the Lightning," "The Call of Ktulu," "Metal Militia," "Phantom Lord," "Jump in the Fire" and "The Four Horsemen" as given choices. As far as Newsted's health is considered, the bassist should be up and running by next week. "I'd been felling a bit under the weather while performing the most recent shows, so I went to the doctor on my day off today and I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia," he said in an official statement. "So under doctor's orders I'm taking a week to rebuild." The bassist ended the statement with his signature optimistic tone, saying, "My apologies to our Canadian brothers and sisters I'm going to work on keeping me alive so together we can keep the metal alive!" Debut full length Newsted record, "Heavy Metal Music," is scheduled to drop on August 6 via Chophouse Records.
