Jason's the sh**. I used to love watching his stage performance on Live Sh1t Binge & Purge when I was in high school. He's a cool dude. And Voivod's the sh**!

F Jason. He towed the McTallica company line: "Yeah, we sold out. We sold out every arena every night."

He deserves the RnR "HOF" the same as the rest of the cash-grabbing punks.

Congrats to jason........hes a good bass player, but robert trujillo blows him away.....ive never gotten into or appreciated the bass untill i saw robert play, first with suicidal, then ozzy, but metallica seems to have stepped his game up even higher, glad to see him with a band that fully displays his arsenal of talent

Jason at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame didnt even look as though he had any grudges against those dudes, so Metallica can play with Jason they should think about having Mustaine play a song or two, if they ever go on tour with Megadeth.
