Jason joined us inside the Hangar recently to talk about his history and what brought him to the point of starting his own project Newsted. Click play below or download for free our conversation with the one and only Jason Newsted.
Jason Newsted got his start in the band Flotsam and Jetsam in the early 80′s. The band saw a little success but after Metallica bassist Cliff Burton passed away, Jason ended up taking his place as Metallica became the biggest band in the world. After 15 years Jason quit in 2001. After that he played in and with many different bands including Voivod and Ozzy. After being out of the limelight for a few years he his back with his own band simply called Newsted, and he’s inside Hangar 19 this weekend to tell you all about it and play some tunes of course.
Speaking of Flotsam and Jetsam we are going In The Vault with them at the time of their first album ‘Doomsday for the Deceiver.’
This week’s Power Set is from Seputltura and will include a song that Jason guest on for their 1998 album Against. Which was the first album to feature Derrick Green on vocals and not Max Caverla. The other three songs will be from the Max days.
Our Then and Now comes from Zakk Wylde and JD of Black Label Society as they have joined forces with Kevin Martin from Candlebox and Morgan Rose from Sevendust to record a song for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. It’s for charity and you can purchase it here.

Once again join us for the 3 hours of classic metal plus the stuff we just listed, this weekend inside Hangar 19.
At least that’s how Ozzy describes the new album. The band and legendary producer recently did some interviews with Rolling Stone Magazine about the process of ’13′ the band’s first album with Ozzy since 1978′s ‘Never Say Die.’
Ozzy says the disc will start with the song “God is Dead” but then jokingly told the magazine ”but at the end it says, ‘I don’t believe that God is dead.’”
Legendary producer Rick Rubin on the sound of the record: “I wanted to make an album that stood alongside their first four albums. The first album wasn’t a straightforward heavy metal record. You could hear the jazz influence, so that was the goal and to capture that live interaction.” Rubin also had suggested that Cream drummer Ginger Baker take over the skins for the band, and it was the band that preferred the idea of having Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk sit in instead.
That doesn’t mean the band didn’t give Wilk a hard time fo course, “Tony was constantly fussing with me. I’d come in and he’d say, ‘Did you get the email I sent last night with that new song?’ I’m gullible as hell, so I’d say, ‘No, I didn’t get that,’ and then he’d start playing some riff I’d never heard before. And I’d say, ‘Uh, no — wow!’ He kept doing it until I knew he was just kidding.”
