Metallica to reunite with Jason Newsted for HOF induction

Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted will join the group when they perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction next month, according to guitarist Kirk Hammett.

Fans can thank Blondie. Kind of.

In a recent interview, Hammett recalled the night Blondie was inducted in 2006. Former band members Frank Infante and Nigel Harrison asked to perform with the band, and Debbie Harry refused. Hammett said the band wanted to avoid such an awkward moment.

As we reported yesterday, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will induct Metallica. Now we’re wondering where current Metallica bassist Rob Trujillo will be.
