Jason, happy birthday man, I know you’ll never see this, but your the best inspiration not just on the bass, but also in real life situations and how to deal with things, a guy could ever wish for. Your music has helped me through tough times and always has me amazed and drifting off to some random nether. Throughout your career, seeing you play and your technique and use of notes has been the driving force that’s kept me playing the instrument trying be as awesome a bassist as you.
Your my inspiration and without you I wouldn’t have the passion I know and love today. I only picked up a bass a decade ago because of you man. I just wanted to thank you and wish you all the best. I know one day when you come to the UK I’ll finally meet you! Hopefully soon.
Newsted is what the world needs, the Metal needs keeping alive, and your one of the best pioneers we’ve got.
Happy birthday man, stay metal. |„/
