# CLX…Out Of Their Shadow…

It was on this date in 1963, in a little town known as Battle Creek, Michigan, that former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted was born into this world.  He was the core bassist for the group after the late Cliff Burton was prematurely taken from us in 1986 until his departure in 2001.

Upon leaving the band, however, he did have a string of bands that he went on to play bass for (most notably being Robert Trujillo’s replacement with Ozzy Osbourne, after Trujillo signed on with Metallica).  Starting his career with the metal band Flotsam and Jetsam, he later (after Metallica) played with Ozzy and also with the band Voivod (playing bass with the three original members) as well as being involved in a short-lived reality show called “Rock Star Supernova”.

It is his current endeavor, however, that earns him the title of this post…if you check out Post # CXVIII…which is the hot metal group with his name on it, Newsted.  Their debut album is nothing short of phenomenal and should be added to your collection.  From all his time in Metallica, the only time that he’s sung had been at live concerts…the new album is all HIM and he rocks it like he’s be doing it for years.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Newsted…and many happy more!!!!
