I got a call a couple of weeks ago from Jason Newsted’s “people” wondering if I’d like to have him back in the Hangar. It’s Jason Newsted, his face is tattooed on my arm as a member of Metallica, of course I wanted to have him back on. The deal was the he specifically wanted to talk about the debut full length from his band Newsted called Heavy Metal Music and that he was going to bring his new guitarist Mike Mushok with him. Mike is also the guitar player for the nu-metal band Staind. Now not only did they want to come in the Hangar but they also joined me on my hometown radio station along with a good friend of mine who is DJ there named Borna. So enjoy a conversation with myself, Borna, Jason Newsted and Mike Mushok right here.
