    I suppose this is bassist releated but it isn't so much about a bassist's tone or style so I decided to put it in here. I was just wondering how tall Jason Newstead is? I was reading a bio of him and it says he's only 5'9? :confused: He looks pretty big on the S+M DVD.

    +1 on 42.

    Or multiples if the issue seems really large.

    Idk, he HAS commented on being short and scrawny in HS. Not much changes once you hit 17.

    Really? He looks way taller than James Hetfield and James is apparently 6'1.

    I don't like him, really. His tone did not impress me at all on the S&M show.

    :eek: It's a very nice tone to my ears. I prefer him to Cliff Burton, as he was a more 'stay in the groove and make it heavy' type bassist. I know I will get flamed to hell for that, but it's my view.
