10/23/06 - Jason Newsted Will Not Participate in Super Nova Tour
Jason Newsted has been sidelined by a torn anterior labrum in his left shoulder and a rotator cuff and bicep tear in the right. The former Metallica / Flotsam & Jetsam will head to surgery immediately to repair the injuries, but is not expected to be able to play for nine months. Apparently, the injuries were caused by a 90-pound bass amp head that had fallen from the top of his amp and Newsted tried to catch it.

"I'm freaking out. My heart was set on finally getting on the road with these guys, but my main focus now is to build myself back to 100%. The stage is set for the band, I wish them the best of luck."

Tommy Lee had this to say, "When we started this project, I was handed a list of names guys who could potentially anchor our rhythm section, I responded by crumpling up the paper and asking, 'Where's Newsted?' Jason was always the right guy for this band and we'll miss having him with us as we kick off our album and tour, but we know he'll be back as soon as he can pick up and play. As for who will handle bass duties until then, we've got a few monster guys in mind, any one of which can hit the ground running. Stay tuned."
