(Classic Rock) Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted has recalled his favorite moments recording the band's 1991 self-titled album. Newsted says he was particularly pleased with the song My Friend Of Misery, which opens with his bass guitar and which he says was a "real accomplishment" in a band which had previously released ...And Justice For All with the bass almost inaudible in the mix.

As the self-titled album, aka The Black Album, celebrates its 25th anniversary, Newsted tells Billboard: "It was the bass, by itself, introducing My Friend Of Misery, which was not the easiest thing to do at that time within that band.

"That was a moment where those guys kind of bowed and said, 'Here you go, man, put your song on there,' being the guy who came up with that. As opposed to being part of the team, I got to be myself for a minute there, which was a real accomplishment." Read more here.
