Jason Newsted and Megadeth's Metallica Jam Finally Happens

(Gibson) They'd talked about doing it, and for a while it looked like it wasn't going to happen, but Megadeth and former Metallica bass player Jason Newsted finally shared the stage on the final night of the touring Gigantour festival.

Newsted joined Dave Mustaine and co on stage in Toronto, Canada last night to perform lead vocals on a cover of Metallica's "Phantom Lord," one of several songs from Metallica's debut Kill' Em All that were primarily written by Mustaine. (You can watch video of the jam here.)

The other Kill 'Em All songs were "Jump In The Fire," "Metal Militia" and "The Four Horsemen," which was originally titled "The Mechanix" and was featured on the first Megadeth album, Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good). more on this story
