Former METALLICA Bassist JASON NEWSTED Sells Walnut Creek Home For .3 Million
Former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsed has sold his Walnut Creek, California house.

Newsted put the home on the market in August for for $2.89 million, but that price came down in October to $2.475 million. The house ended up being sold on November 26 for $2.3 million.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom home was built in 1986, and covers 6,720 square feet on a 1.37-acre lot.

Back in 2017, Newsted put up his Sula, Montana ranch for sale at $4.95 million. That price came down by $450,000 in July to $4.5 million. The property has since apparently been removed from the market.

Five years ago, the now-56-year-old Newsted canceled an appearance at Australia’s Soundwave festival with his band NEWSTED, citing “private and personal circumstances.” The cancelation followed more than a year of intense touring and promotional activity surrounding the release of NEWSTED‘s “Metal” EP and follow-up album, “Heavy Metal Music”, both of which were positively received by the critics and fans alike.

After staying mostly out of the public eye for a couple of years, Newsted rejoined Canadian metal innovators VOIVOD on stage during June 2016 concert at Slim’s in San Francisco, California. He has since formed a couple of new acoustic projects, one of which completed a short West Coast tour.

Jason left METALLICA back in 2001 but was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, along with guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett, and the man who replaced him, bassist Robert Trujillo, in 2009.
