Jason Newsted spoke with CDNow where he admitted that Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich had phoned him about having a “sit-down” with singer James Hetfield to clear the air. Newsted said, “Lars called last week and said that we [James and Jason] should really have a meeting together and do all that kind of thing. I think that would be really good, after a year to be able to come back and talk to each other.” Metallica still hasn’t found a replacement for the bassist since he left the group a year ago, but they have reconvened and plan on recording in the next few weeks. Jason’s current band, Echobrain, is planning a March 5 release of its debut.
