The first inkling appeared when
at the highly anticipated "VH1 - My music awards" aired
live. It was promoted in every way it possibly could, like
in commercials, on the web, and it even let us fans choose
the song to be played. As always, Metallica performed "Fade
to Black" perfectly, outside in the parking lot. And no
one was surprised when Metallica took home "Gods of Thunder",
over new bands like Creed.I guess Jason didn't feel much
like a god of thunder, considering he didn't show up for
the pre-show, or the recption,and even sitting his own section,
away from James, Lars, and Kirk. I was surprised, seeing
the band like that, and even more surprised that not too
many Met fans were aware of this. But it wasn't surprising
when Jason left Metallica,in January. Joining Metallica,
the band expected him to fill in Cliff's shoes decently,
and play good. Joining Metallica for Jason was not only
for that, but to contribute his all to Metallica in a different
way than Cliff. Considering out of 4 original albums, (not
including the cover album Garage Inc. or S&M) Jason only
helped write 3 songs. Those three songs (My friend of Misery,
Blackened, Where the wild things are) all happen to kick
mad ass. Who knows what Metallica could have produced if
they let Jason contribute to the albums more? It definately
would have made Re-Load and Load much heavier. Even Kirk
admitted it was bitchy of James to prohibit him from releasing
his Echo Brain album. Now that he's not in Metallica, he's
finally allowed to do whatever he wants, and Lars even claimed
they were much closer as friends now. What more could you
want from an ex member? I mean, they're in touch, still
close friends, and who knows, maybe they'll do a show or
two together(Keep those fingers crossed!). Sure, now Metallica
can't cover songs like Of Wolf and Man and?Seek and Destroy
very well now (We all love Jason's voice), but we all have
to thank Jason for 14 years of heavy shit, head-banging,
etc, etc. Rock on, Metallica (and Jason)!
