Jason Newsted Net Worth: Jason Newsted is an American heavy metal musician who has a net worth of $40 million dollars. Jason Newsted was born March 4, 1963 in Battle Creek, Michigan. He is best known for playing bass guitar with the bands Metallica, Voivod and Flotsam and Jetsam. Joining Metallica in 1986 after Cliff Burton's death, Newsted remained a member until 2001, making him the band's longest-serving bassist. After he left Metallica, he continued with his project Echobrain, played with Ozzy Osbourne and joined heavy metal band Voivod. Newsted uses the pseudonym Jasonic, which serves as both his alias in Voivod and the name of his music publishing company. He is also the founder of the Chophouse Records studio and label, based in California. His first instrument was a guitar, which he started to play at 9 years old, but he moved to bass at 14 after being exposed to Gene Simmons of Kiss. Newsted cites Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath as his major influence and lists Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, Steve Harris of Iron Maiden, Peter Baltes of Accept, Geddy Lee of Rush, Rob Grange of Ted Nugent and Bill Church of Montrose as other significant influences. Newsted co-wrote three Metallica songs, to include Blackened, My Friend of Misery and Where the Wild Things Are. Newsted left Metallica in 2003 and Robert Trujillo became their new bass player. Newsted joined Canadian thrash metal band Voivod and also, ironically, replaced Robert Trujillo in Ozzy Osbourne's band during Ozzfest 2003, which included Voivod as a second stage act. During an MTV interview, both Osbourne and Newsted showed extreme enthusiasm in writing a new album together, with Osbourne comparing Newsted to "a young Geezer Butler." This would not come to fruition, as Newsted left Osbourne upon finishing tour duties in late 2003. On April 4, 2009, Newsted was present with Metallica and played with the band alongside current bassist Robert Trujillo at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio. He currently plays in his self-titled band Newsted, in which he provides lead vocals as well as bass.
