. Successful and happy collaboration with Cliff Burton did not last long - before the tragedy in Sweden. Metallikovtsy understand that they must continue to play even after such a loss ...
They did it with Jason Newsted. He was chosen by a group after listening to about 40 people, including Troy Gregory, Willy Lange and Les Claypool. Candidacy was proposed by Jason Brian Slagelom. Brian was a little familiar with the group of Jason, Flotsam & Jetsam, which was recorded in its Metal Blade Records.
Jason was a very difficult position - Cliff was more than just a bass player in Metallica. Jason was supposed to support a very high level of play group ...
He was born in Battle Creek and grew up in Niles. When he was 14, the family moved to Kalamazoo Newsted. He lived just 5 miles from the factory guitars Gibson.
The main reason that Jason took up the bass, was Gene Simmons from Kiss. Jason threw a few times to play, but then started to do it again - thirst for music prevailed.
Over time, Jason had saved money for a decent bass and joined a group of Gangster, a guitarist which was Tom Hamlin. Tom was Jason's mentor and taught him a lot.
In 1981, Tom and Jason moved to Phoenix. Jason found a job and often was on her busy. Soon they parted and Jason met with the drummer, whose name was Kelly David-Smith. They played together for a while, then moved to Scottsdale, and together with guitarists Mark Vasquez and Kevin Horton organized Dogz. Horton was replaced by Ed Carlson and in this part, they gave several concerts and recorded several demos.
In 1983, the group added vocalist Eric AK. and shortly afterwards they changed their name to Flotsam & Jetsam. Jason acted as a bassist, composer, lyricist and manager.
Flotsam & Jetsam signed up on a compilation Metal Massacre - exactly the same, like Metallica a few years earlier. Shortly thereafter, they signed to Metal Blade Records.
. While listening to Jason played not only all things Cliff, but also several times tried to improvise and make something of themselves, to show what he really a bass player ..
