Dave Mustaine To Perform Metallica Song With Jason Newsted on Gigantour
With former Metallica members Dave Mustaine and Jason Newsted both on Gigantour this summer, there has been rampant speculation the two would jam an old-school Metallica song from the band’s Mustaine era.
In an interview a few weeks ago, Newsted told SkullNBones that he and Mustaine have talked about playing some vintage Metallica songs together. “There is a chance that Mustaine and I will bust out some old Metallica that he was a part of,” Newsted said. “I’m willing to throw down ‘Phantom Lord.’ Actually, whatever he calls out, I’m gonna throw down.”
Now Mustaine has all but confirmed the collaboration by asking fans for suggestions as to which Metallica song the two musicians should perform together:
