Mustaine and Newsted Plan Metallica Jam On Gigantour
The idea first appeared in an interview SkullsnBones.com conducted with Newsted where he said, "There is a chance that Mustaine and I will bust out some old Metallica that he was a part of. it has been talked about. I'm willing to throw down Phantom Lord – actually, whatever he calls out, I'm gonna throw down."
A short time later Mustaine told Grammy.com, "There's a really cool new relationship between the two of us. I saw he said something about us playing a song together and I thought, 'Wow, that's pretty interesting. It's doable, and I think it would be fun.'"
It now appears that Mustaine wants to make it a reality as he tweeted the following question to fans last week, "If I play a song I wrote in @Metallica w/@JasonCNewsted, which should it be? Ride, Metal Militia, Phantom, Jump, Khutulu, or Four Horsemen?"
