Just read this on another site. NEWSTED JOINS OZZY!...MAYBE (03/06/2003) Although it has yet to be confirmed officially, Rock-Sound.net is reporting that former METALLICA bassist, and current VOIVOD bassist Jason Newsted has joined OZZY OSBOURNE's band, filling the slot vacated by Robert Trujillo, who left to join METALLICA. (My, what an odd 'Six Degrees of Separation' moment) "Jason has joined the band", said Zakk Wylde in an interview with Rock-Sound. "I just got off the phone to him and he asked me to show him the right key for the songs so he doesn't look like an idiot." Even though the two have yet to meet, Zakk says he's anxious to begin working with Jason, "he can play and I've heard from people who know him that he is a really nice kid." If this turns out to be true, Newsted will be playing on stage with Ozzy during this year's OZZFEST What an interesting development !!!!!!!
