He's most known for his time in Metallica, but he's contributed so much more to the rock music world. He's been in Flotsam and Jetsam, Papa Wheelie, Echobrain, toured with Ozzy, and is currently in Voivod. He's looked over a lot due to his leaving of Metallica, and trying to fill Cliff Burton's shoes. I think he deserves his own thread, he's definitely one of the best rock bassists out there today.

i think its a shame he got booted from metallica, as he said in s.k.o.m there was no way echobrain would effect metallica. if Death Magnetic had Newstead it wouldh've been alot better imo
#3
No doubt he's a great bassist etc...
But his personality grinds on me for some reason
#4
He didn't get booted from Metallica, he quit. Newsted is without a doubt one of the most underrated bassists. One of my biggest inspirations. Although most people won't admit it, he was definitely the best bassist for Metallica.
#5
^I totally agree with that. He wasn't the best bassist (cliff was) but he fit the band way better.

jason was awesome he wasnt cliff but he was still great idc if he played with a pick he still had some awesome lines and solos like the one from the cunning stunts dvd

1) No one should care if any bassist plays with a pick.

He seems overrated to me. Just like everyone else in Metallica, he is a pretty average player. Except for Ulrich, who is on par with most monkeys.

No worries. If English isn't your first language, then I'm sorry about that.

this thread isn't necessarily about metallica.

I don't see how it's a problem if it is either.

You seem stupid.

ON TOPIC: Jason Newsted got me into playing bass, when I heard his solo from cunning stunts. Needless to say, I really, really like Jason Newsted.

Really? Well apparently you aren't particularly aware of how forums work.

You see, if multiple threads are started on the same subject, chaos and general disorganization ensues. It's like having multiple dictionary entries for the same word scattered throughout its pages. Multiple threads are ridiculous when a single one will suffice.

Ok ok, I might as well make threads about every person who plays in a band.

Seriously man, there's a Metallica thread, there's a Voivod thread, fuck there's even a thrash thread. You can take your dumbassery there.

I like how you shamelessly pulled that 'you seem stupid' line out of your roach infested ass.
