Mustaine and Newsted to Play Metallica Songs at Gigantour?
Jason Newsted has admitted that there's a chance he and Dave Mustaine will play Metallica songs on the upcoming Gigantour. Newsted famously quit Metallica in 2001 after clashing with his bandmates. Today he fronts the band titled Newsted, who were recently added to the Gigantour lineup. Mustaine, of course, was also a member of Metallica until similar clashes forced him out to be replaced by Kirk Hammett in 1983. When asked if by Skulls N' Bones (via Blabbermouth) there was a chance if the pair would bust out Metallica songs that they were a part of, Newsted replied with a wry smile: "There is a chance. It has been talked about. Whatever happens for sure, I don't know, but I'm willing to throw it out." The Gigantour will also feature Megadeth, Black Label Society, David Draiman's Device and Death Division among others in its lineup. In the same interview, Newsted was asked what advice he would give his younger self. "Don't take sh-t personally," he said. "It's really important in life or in a big band, where you're all relying on each other and it's all dudes, and there's a all the puffing of chests and posturing ... you really gotta maintain your ground and not take sh-t personally. That's the biggest deal." Watch the original interview with Jason Newsted here:
