I feel so sorry for James saying this about Jason.
Both bass players were under different unwritten rules and regulations under the auspice of James and Lars. Having been around for most of the Jason era I’d wish they’d give him the respect he is due. To say things like this only cheapens your opinion in the eyes of others. Jason was held back and not allowed o do projects outside of Metallica. Still he did just that with the likes of Jim Martin and others. Jason is also guilty in the eyes of the die hard Flotsam fans for just moving up to the next level. I figure it is hard for Jason with the strong arm of Metallica closing doors on him years after his departure. The real shame is on the fans that pay the ultimate price of not seeing a harmonious coexistence. Is this new Lp the last nail in the coffin that will send these guys into the world of going through the motion? Only time will tell.
