Former OZZY OSBOURNE and current VOIVOD bassist Jason Newsted has checked in via the Chophouse Studios newsletter. Here's what he had to say:

"I would like to thank the Osbournes for including VOIVOD in their tours this year. I am honored to have had the privilege to share the stage with Ozzy, Zach and Mike through a very successful summer. It was a blast playing old BLACK SABBATH songs with this band!

My agreement with the Osbournes was to play bass for the gigs that Ozzy had committed to through December 2003. I wish Ozzy the best as he continues to fly the flag for metal!

I am excited to be back making new music with VOIVOD. The Chophouse studio is fired up and ready for the creation of the next album."

Hey, good for Jason, he really marches to his own drummer (bad pun). If he wants to stay with Voivod, good for him, especially with Ozzy in medical turmoil (get well Ozz). Jason made the right decision leaving Metallica, and has the power, and money to do what he wants in terms of music. So what if he is not in the "mainstream" he still continues to make good music, so why not support him.
