Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted left a generous tip and drew a crazy photo for a fan named Michael Swantek at a bar yesterday. Metallica recently confirmed Jason Newsted wouldn’t return for a surprising show.

Michael said, “Jason Newsted of Metallica came in to the bar today w his beautiful wife Nicole. Both such sweet spirits. Loved them both! Wo my knowledge, Jason doodled this for me and left it w a generous tip. BTW, notice the ‘MIKE’ he added to the shirt? He’s a class act!” You can view the photo below.

FuriouSherman recently wrote on Reddit about why he doesn’t understand ‘…And Justice For All’ being a favorite among Metallica fans, “A couple things right off the bat. First, a little context: I do not think that And Justice For All is a bad album. Far from it: I think it contains the band’s best songwriting as a whole; While there are lyrics and song structures I like more on an individual basis, they aren’t as consistently good on any other record. In fact, One is even my favourite Metallica song.

An AC/DC member was recently filmed drinking with Lars Ulrich. Secondly, if you are a person who considers AJFA their favourite Metallica album, I am NOT (repeat: NOT) saying anything bad about your choice or about you as a human being. All I am saying is that personally, I do not understand why you made that choice.

Now onto the rant itself: I refuse to buy the record itself or listen to any renditions of AJFA’s songs that aren’t live or properly remixed/remastered, and that comes down to one simple reason: The production is so completely, utterly, and inexcusably BAD. After being spoiled with Cliff Burton’s bass pyrotechnics and classically trained sensibilities for the previous three albums, how could the band, the producer, and the fucking record label possibly let an album with no bass whatsoever be released?! As a person who’s taken production classes as part of a radio program, it just makes me very angry. I don’t believe any of the excuses given by the band for the production, and neither do I believe any of the album’s strengths can counter the lack of bass. Jason Newsted’s stunning comeback performance video was recently revealed.

That being said, however, I do not think anyone is making a bad choice by saying this is their favourite. I suppose that in the end, the point of my rant is to ask you all this: If AJFA is your favourite Metallica album, then what is it about the album that makes you overlook the production? I love listening to and collecting good records, but I simply can’t bring myself to listen to it. Maybe I’m missing something, some hidden meaning to it all that would instantly make me no longer want for lack of bass once I find it. If any of you do decide to share how you’re able to get past that barrier, it’s greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
