If I knew then what I know now, I'd have payed attention
Now I do live by
these words. You mean to tell me Jason is gone? Well, thank
God he's not dead. It's not the end of the world you know.
Really. I was a wee lass of 13 or so when my hears were
bestowed with the beauty and grace that is Fade to black.
But I never did the crazed fan thing most girls my age did.
It wasn't until Justice came out that I was truly hooked.
I still argue I've been a fan since 85, but such is life.
I didn't care what they looked like, I cared how they sounded.
So 14 years later, I'm still hooked and now, for some odd
reason, I dig the looks too. But I have to say, Jason is
inspiring. His power and hunger to play the music he loves
no matter what if just awesome. You never saw Jason's demons
or ego. You just saw the Jason you saw. Maybe this was the
true Jason, or maybe it was his master plan to be a wall
and let nothing get to him. I don't know much about Bass
except I love the thump. Pick your fave Met CD and a killer
stereo system and go to heaven. It's really simple. You
see, Cliff was the man. His work on the first 3 albums kicked
pure ass. Jason never got the chance to really shine they
way we all saw that he could, given half the chance. His
release was on stage. Maybe that was on purpose.
I'm 9 hours ahead
of California time, and on Wed. evening, I left "the net"
rather early and in much pain from a toothache. On Thursday,
I kicked my self for noticing, I made one last post on the
boards (encycmet) and 5 minutes later, it had been announced.
I'm actually glad I didn't see it first. Technically I should
have. Oh and to top that, I did'nt get online the next morning
until after Noon.. I checked my mail first and tons of emails
"Hey jib, are you ok??" and I was like.. it's just a tooth.
I had no clue. Then when i saw the news on Encycmet, I cried.
I literally did. You have to understand the little "competition"
between myself (and fellow Jason fans) versus the "James"
fans.. so it was really hard on me. Metallica was the one
thing you could count on as being stable. Now what? Life
does go on.
For whatever reason(s)
Jason truly had, let's leave them to him. They are his,
not ours, and who are we to tell him he's wrong for what
he's done. It's his life and love. We will go on, Metallica
will go on and Jason will too. I hope to see Echo Brain
soon, and even though it may be obvious that he left to
follow other musical avenues, I'm satisified with the press
release. Maybe it was time for him to go pursue his true
calling. Maybe Metallica was his true calling and he's made
a mistake. Thank you Jason, for 14 wonderful years and looking
forward to the next.
