Anthony Morgan of Metal Forces recently conducted an interview with former METALLICA, VOIVOD and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM bassist and current NEWSTED frontman Jason Newsted. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.


[...]

On ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA:

Jason: “If you think about that one, you’ve got the two biggest Hollywood rock star bands involved with a guy from the purest metal band. You’ve got GUNS ‘N ROSES, which is so much fakey, Hollywood stuff. You’ve then got MÖTLEY CRÜE which is even more fakey, Hollywood stuff, and then you’ve got real metal. It was not easy to get them to come to rehearsals, or even play songs. We only got to have like five rehearsals in the entire existence of the band. That’s not the way I do things. I work hard and I practise hard, and I always have. I don’t do that kind of Hollywood shit, man. [laughs]“

The only problem is Metallica is not a real metal band since 1995....
Btw i agree with the rest of the article

Unless we start boycotting them nothing will ever change.
 
Stop seeing GnR concerts. Stop buying shit from them.
 
2 things will happen:
- They will actually step up and release new music.
- Or they will quit.
 
And quite frankly, both options are better than this.

we were the left overs... the "hardcore" fans

I can understand paying out on Motley but to call Guns fake he should shut the fuck up and go stand back in Cliff's shadow.

Oh and WTF learn how to paste in normal fonts. Fucking hell.

God, some of you are so touchy...

Newsted is the shit! So is Guns. And to some extent Mötley too. At least, Nikki and Mick are.

Newsted's awesome. You guys suck. He's wrong about GnR, though. Can't blame him though... Axl fucked them up so bad I'd hate him too.

Jason was "injured" before the tour started, and Johnny Colt from the Black Crowes replaced him.

I love Newkid as a big Metallica fan (great bassist, miss his backing vocals, no crabwalking) but calling Guns fake is a pile of shite.

Of course, as it's a lie but you gotta take it from his side. Metallica had a TERRIBLE time touring with GnR.

He's a dork for doing Rock Star Supernova. Maybe Gilby, Dave and Tommy were being douches.

I can't imagine Gilby being a douche. He seems like a cool, laid back dude. Tommy Lee on the other hand...

Navarro wasn't a member of the band, just one of the judges.

Fake? The whole point about the Appetite era is the reality of it. GN'R pulled their lyrics from the experience of being dirt poor and living in a sort of debauced hedonistic poverty. GN'R did not write cheesy cock songs (sans Anything Goes) and power ballads but songs about drug abuse (Mr B), urbanised hell (WTTJ), police harrassment (otgm) and various damaged women (my michelle, rocket queet). Slash did not merely imitate countless shredders that were doing the rounds, CC Deville for instance, but pulled his licks from the great Anglo-American 60s and 70s bluesmiths.

UYI era? Yes, there is an element of fakery, of rock star bullshit, which enters GN'R's world. The ten minute videos for instance. The 1992 band and Axl's ego. But Jason is incorrect in regards to Appetite era Guns.
