In 1996 the music video for ‘Until It Sleeps’ premiered on MTV. It was one of the first times the audience had a chance to glimpse at Metallica‘s new style & sound. The song starts with Jason Newsted’s distinctive bass line, adding a very dark touch into the band’s then new Rock & Blues adventure. Today (March 4th) is Jason Curtis Newsted’s birthday, as he probably celebrates 52 years of being pure awesome. Newsted gave so much to the world of music throughout his years in Metallica and his other musical projects. This is for the fans: Now you can play ‘Until It Sleeps’ with the chords and lyrics in perfect sync. Happy Birthday Jason!
