Jason Newsted Comments On Possibility Of Rejoining Metallica

December 28, 2012 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with Swedish blog Metal Shrine (via NME), Jason Newsted commented on the possibility of rejoining Metallica.

Newsted left the band in 2001 and was replaced by Rob Trujllo. Newsted joined the band himself in 1986 after the death of Cliff Burton.

He said: “If they were ‘brofessional’ about it and if they came as my brothers and they were professional with the meeting and they’re sitting there and looking me in the eye and the managers aren’t around.. If it was like that again and the money was crazy, then I would consider it. But it would be only for that thing and it would be absolutely delegated. It would have to be these 30 shows in these 45 days for this squillion dollars. But it has to be that. I love those guys and I always will and I will defend them to the end of time. I’ll always have respect for those guys, because they gave me my chance. They gave me my chance and I’ll never ever forget that. Now, we’ve had our differences over time but that shit is under the bridge a long time ago.
