It’s been eleven years since Jason Newsted left Metallica , and he says he would go back on tour with the band for a” squillion dollars.”
The bassist tells Swedish music blog Metal Shrine he'd consider it, "If they were 'brofessional' about it and if they came as my brothers and they were professional with the meeting and they're sitting there and looking me in the eye and the managers aren't around." And of course there's the money. He adds, "It would have to be these 30 shows in these 45 days for this squillion dollars. But it has to be that.''
Newsted was a member of Metallica for fifteen years, and despite quitting in 2001, he bears no bitterness toward the group. “'I love those guys and I always will and I will defend them to the end of time," he says.
