    Newsted leaves Metallica
    By blppt January 18, 2001, 01:51 AM

    Looks like at least one member is not happy with the backlash after Napster. He claims he left because of the touring schedule, but i think it sounds like it was something else. You can read about it on mtv.com (if you dare venture to that horrible network's site) or metallica.com.

    "Backlash after Napster?" Enlighten me.

    By BloodRed January 18, 2001, 06:16 AM

    This is a truely sad day. I've been a Metallica fan since I was in Jr. High. I always wondered who would be the first to leave, but I didn't really want to know.. if you know what I mean. I say they'll replace him with Les Claypool if they can. We'll just have to see.

    Napster? I dont see how that plays into it. He said becuase of the constant touring and health problems. He has been with them for 14 years... I dunno, it is a sad day but oh well. I haven't like Metallica that much lately.

    They were the ones that started the whole Napster legal stink last year. Got a whole bunch of people banned for sharing Metallica songs, and brought up a case against Napster for harboring pirates. It caused a big split in the music community and a lot of people directed their anger at Lars Ulrich, the dummer for Metallica who was the de facto leader of the whole thing.

    Exactly, but a lot of people took it out on thw whole band. For example, when they played 'tattoo the earth' in NJ this year, they were booed and things were thrown at the stage when they came on. Things quieted down after that, but you can imagine all of the metalheads, who were already pissed at Metallica for 'selling out' (i put that in quotes for a reason) then get blasted by the band they used to like for mp3s, must have been. I'm sure, at some point, there must have been some death threats or even just a lot of rather insulting mail sent Jason's way. Since he never seemed to be as active as Lars or James in the battle against Napster, maybe all this hatred got to him. Some foolish people even blame Jason for the way Metallica shifted to their new, decidedly less heavy sound, since it happened after he joined. (Of course these people should realize that he wrote maybe 4 or 5 songs the time he was here). So people must have rode him about that too. Thats my theory of why he left anyways.

    Please write out the words correctly in your post. Then we could understand you.

    I really don't think it was napster. Do you know how many other artists have went against napster? I think after 14 years with a band, he needed a change. Numerous reasons were given and one was his health wasnt that great.

    He was probably sick of that damn orchestra! Heh...

    I kinda liked the orchestra

    I think he figured this was the only way he'd ever really get to express himself. Have you ever heard any of the music he's made outside of Metallica? He's into more bluesy stuff, and that seems to be what he would love to play. IMO, he thinks that if he stayed with Metallica he would have been stuck playing heavy metal for his entire musical career, instead of being able to write his own music. He'll always be remembered as a part of Metallica, but it'll be strange to see them up on stage with a different bass player.

    By NOS January 18, 2001, 10:53 PM

    Their music was getting real weak anyway! I'm an early 80's metallica fan but thats about it these days!

    By Grizzly January 19, 2001, 01:24 AM

    That is sad news. There's alot of folks who are "old" school Metallica fans, and alot of folks who are die hard fans of the 90's Metallica.....myself....I'm BOTH! I love every single song they've ever made (With the exception of the Unforgiven II).
    It pains me to see the possibility of Metallica stopping making their incredible music someday. They've been around longer than I've been alive, which amazes me to no end.

    Hats off to Metallica.
