Despite rumors, Jason Newsted will not be joining Megadeth

Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted’s wife took to social media to shoot down rumors that her husband is joining Megadeth. There has been speculation that Dave Mustaine was recruiting Newsted after the band dismissed David Ellefson earlier this month.

Jason’s wife Nicole addressed the rumors on her Instagram page, writing: “Hi guys! Two things “1. Jason is not joining Megadeth. peace to them. Listen to metal 2. Jason does not have social media accounts; this includes but is not limited to TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Onlyfans and Tinder. If you are receiving dm’s from the Jason Newsted music account or any other account claiming to be Jason please know this is not Jason and proceed at your own risk”.
