Interview reveals why Jason Newsted left Metallica
Encyclopedia Metallica posted a summary of Jason's interview with KNACK FM yesterday where he talked a lot about Metallica, his past and present. If you're wondering [like me] what exactly what all of this talk of "the toll it took on me" as a reason for leaving is, here's your answer:
He has severe cervical spine damage from the headbanging and the heavy basses. No surgery yet, just Accupuncture and Phys Therapy.
I didn't find anything else very shocking, but it's a good read if you're a Metallica fan.
