Newsted: “I’ve Always Wanted To Be In Voivod”
“I guess, over the years at different times, it was always a secret, true aspiration to be the bass player of Voidod,” said the four stringer on www.voivod.com. “We’ve talked somewhat seriously about this actually happening since 1995. I also feel strongly about my hard-earned ability to bring some long deserved recognition to these brilliant musicians, whom I’ve looked up to since the early days of this music that the four of us helped to invent.
“I’m not starting over again… I’m just continuing. A positive rebirth has occurred for me in the case of joining Voivod. It is a new beginning for all four of us.”
Newsted is currently recording with Voivod in California.
