Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted spoke in a recent interview with WZZR, and revealed an interesting details about a health problem from his neck because of doing hardly headbang so much.

According to Jason’s announcement on that interview, doctors told him ‘he needs to stop headbanging’. Here’s the entire statement:

“You can take the bullet out of metal, but not the metal out of the bullet – that type of thing. So that’s always gonna be there, the fangs are still sharp; so whatever we play, if it’s Johnny Cash or whatever it may be, it’s still gonna have that wallop, I think.

So, playing heavy music every once in a while, I never give up on the jam. Tuesday, we have J.P. and his drummer Chris Pete over to the Chophouse to rock a bit.

It’s been a lot of time, 25-ish years of headbanging, I gave myself whiplash. And so, through the years, doctors of all different languages and countries, they told me, you know, ‘No more that, no more spinning head.’

So where we are now, I still kind of do it, but it’s been 10 years after being told not to. So between that thing and going literally spine… like, all tangles and mangles, now the focus is still the same, the juice is still the same, the energy is still the same, the amps are a little smaller.”
