On March 28, Jason Newsted revealed some heartbreaking moments he lived with Metallica. He made fans emotional who read his words.

“Everybody else, whether they knew me, or they call me Jason anyway because they knew my name, but I didn’t know them, there’s millions of those people – millions of those people – and they all had something to say about it,” Jason stated. “‘How in the hell could you do that? You’re throwing away tens of millions of dollars? Why would you do that? Why would you step out of the biggest and best band of all time? What are you thinking?’

“You don’t know where I’ve been. But it took me a while to convince them. So, as I think about that ‘What if? What if? What if?’, it worked out exactly like it was supposed to. I’m not saying I could have planned it or anything like that. So it took for the years to subside, which is really nice, and now I’ve got 19 years. I’ve had a whole other two or three lifetimes since I was in that big thing that provided all of this for me.”

“I’ll never talk a bad word about anything like that or the guys; they gave me my chance and my life, and I worked as hard as I could,” he said. “I was always with the fans.

“Something back here told me I have to spend every minute I can with the people ’cause it’s not always gonna be like this. And so I did; that was my thing.

“They made fun of me for how much time I spent with the fans. Really – they ridiculed me for how much time I spent with the fans. And now I wouldn’t change one thing. I had my doubts at a certain time, but now I know.”
