Happy Birthday today (March 4) to former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted who turns 54.Other rockers celebrating include current Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph (53) and ex Volbeat bassist Anders Kjolholm (46). In remembrance today, bassist and founding Yes member Chris Squire would have been 69.
Not long after departing Megadeth's Sidewave shows, Newsted is cancelling concert dates through March -- including a scheduled appearance at the Soundwave Festival in Australia. Details on just why remain sketchy.
Newsted are digging deeper into their 'Heavy Metal Music' album, with '… As the Crow Flies' being chosen as the next single. The group recently completed a video for the track and Loudwire is proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of the clip.
