Former Metallica bassist, Jason Newsted, stopped by Gator 98.7 FM’s Gator Garage for a VIP performance and Q&A session.
Newsted was asked what musical projects he’s working on, saying:
“Actually, I spent six months of last year putting together The Chophouse Band Volume 1′. The Chophouse Band has been together [and] making music since 1992. So it was our first album after 30 years.
”I spent a lot of time on that. And then, once I got that under my belt, I’m kind of stepping back into the heavy now. So the last couple of weeks I’ve been auditioning guitar players for a heavy project.
”I’m back on bass and singing with a metal drummer, double bass, you know; getting’ loud again. So I’ve got a couple of irons in the fire. I’m putting two new projects together right now, but loud.”
