    1. This should be in Bassists
    2. I like him. He is one of my favourites, way up there. I think he made the right choice in leaving though, as Metallica treated him like crap. In fact, I have lots of respect for Newsted for leaving such a huge band.
    3. Echobrain is pretty cool, although Jason isn't with them anymore
    4. He is playing with Canadian metal band Voivod, who are awesome. He has played on only one of their CD's, their 2003 self-titled album. He also has many other side projects, all of them on his Chophouse record label. He plays guitar and sings in a few of them. Check http://www.chophouserecords.com/ for all of the bands.
    5. Try to use proper grammar and spelling, it makes stuff a lot easier.

  3. Jason left Metallica?

    I'll have to do a search! Maybe if I'm really really lucky I might find out what people think about him...

    Does he still play Sads? I didn't know, and haven't listened to anything since he left, kinda hope he does. I'd like to get one, but I dunno, my Spectors would get awful jealous...

    Yes Jason is still Rockin the Sadowsky's. I actually read that he said he will allways play them.
