I know you don't wanna hear it, but..


..I have to do it. emoticon

Ok. It's about Jason (Newsted emoticon)

I don't know why I'm writing this here but, I'd alway's want to ask you one Q. Just one. or two. *cough*

I know, it's in a way stupid what I'm doing here, but hey.. I really love you girls, then I really love to know your opinoins and reasons.

So.. uhm..

It's just a simple Q.

Why in the hell are you girls (I know, Anna, Jill, Jenn, Tamz, Simone.. etc.) don't like Jason? Give me one reason. I don't wanna change your opinion about him, I never would. I just wanted to know that. I really love to read about the issues between Jason and the "Fans" (allthought he was the fave member in 'tallica, behind James), because I want to understand the reasons. So, please girls?

Re: I know you don't wanna hear it, but..


My reason? Is a very silly one.

I acknowledge that it's silly. I admit that it's silly.

For me it was that I was around when Cliff was in the band. And I was devastated when Cliff died. I was a young teen at the time & it was the first time I ever had to deal with one of my "idols" dying. So Cliff's death was so very hard to deal with.

And the truth is, Michi? ANYONE that stepped in to replace Cliff - I would have disliked.

It's not the fact that it's Jason. It's the fact that it's NOT Cliff - dyaknowwhatimean?

It's stupid. And silly. And I know that. emoticon

But that was pretty much the reason for me. And then - after he left the band - there was some back & forth talk in the press from him that I didn't like too much.

However - I'll let you in on a secret?

While I have nothing against Rob - I think he's a great bass player & I think he's pretty cool & funny ... there are times when I see him performing? And I miss Jason. A LOT. Heh heh. Rob is a great musician. But Jason was the better performer on stage. emoticon

Do you know what? I totally understand that. TOTALLY. I would never said anything against that because for whom who grown up with Cliff I understand when they dislike Jason. And the most ppl have that reason. But just a little know that Jason have appricate Cliff as a Idol.

..that? My heart is thanking you!!

Nothing against Rob, I like him really much. But I think it's for me in a way the same like you when Cliff died and Jason came. Jason disappeard.. Rob came.

But thank you so much for your post. You have no idea how much it means to me. No idea..

Hey [sign in to see URL]'s not that I "don't" like [sign in to see URL]'s hard to explain I guess. I just think a lot of things could have been handled a lot differently and it came off to me that Jase was a tad bit [sign in to see URL] was at the time. Now I look back on it in a more "adult" way, and find that it wasn't just Jason, it was James [sign in to see URL] a lot of the alcohol and the control freak in Het coming out. I just wish him the best, and while I love Rob, think he's great, I have to agree with Anna and say that I miss Jason on stage. I guess it's because we have an advantage of seeing 15 years of Newsted and only 3 (one tour) with Trujillo.

Time will tell...

ok you know I like Jase and it's your fault emoticon and I have to admitt that I miss him on stage and that has nothing to do with me liking him.
I believe that many people don't like Jason because he left the band. But they never try to see behind that. The man was fed up and the relation between him and especially James were not very good. Besides the true reason, I think, he left was to hurt them and show the other guys that he's present and that he can hurt them like they hurt him. I don't think he actually wanted to leave the band. But you know too many egos together!!!

It's not that I don't like him, it's just that i don't have anything special with Jason. I do appriciate the years of work he put in metallica but the way he left imo was a bit weird. Even though in some way I do understand why.

Conclusion. I don't dislike him, i just wanted to give you more Jason so you don't have to share emoticon

I don't dislike Jason at all. I respect his reasons for leaving, because it seems that he and Het had major issues, and I'm sure what we know only scratch the surface of everything that was going on.

However, I'm a new fan compared to alot of you. I've casually listened to Metallica for years, but I didn't know their names, what they looked like, all the albums, nothing like that, my interest was very casual, until about the time St. Anger came out I fell in love with the black album, and the rest is, as they say, history. So, in a way, I don't know Metallica with Jason. However, I don't wish I had. I've seen both him, and Rob with them live, and I most definatly prefer Rob.

I do however respect Jason, totally. He was a great part of Metallica for a long time.

Re: I know you don't wanna hear it, but..


I never disliked Jason either-- I have to agree with Anna, that while Rob is a good fit for where the guys are now, and will be in the [sign in to see URL] place where I miss Jason is his live performances. Rob is a tremendous bass player, but it's the extras like Jase's backing vox and just how he would come across live. For awhile I had a hard time seeing his side of things w/his conflicts with James because I always supported James in whatever he did. Of course over time, I realize James was at fault for many things involving Jason (and of course we dont know all of it either)and I had to look at the situation with more of an "open mind".

I am thankful for what Jason gave to Metallica and to the fans, He busted his ass 110%. I hope that he has been able to speak off the record with James and things are better between them now since the SKOM days. James is a different person now,and Im willing to bet they've had a conversation or too. I hope to see Jason be presented on stage with them when they are (hopefully first year eligible)inducted into the Rock Hall in 2008. Usually past members are invited to attend, it would be quite touching to see.
