If you could change one singular event in musical history, what would you change?
For me, it would have to be Jason Newsted going to the specific Super Bowl Party he went to in 1995. Either the vehicle he was in breaks down, or he becomes deathly ill, or whatever. He just plain doesn't make it to the destination, that's the important part.
>He never meets the Echobrain guys at that party
>He never teaches them things he learned while in Metallica
>He dedicates his full time to Metallica
>He never gets the need to take time off, and even if he does it's not for a spinoff project
>Lars and James never get pissy over Jason wanting to do something else
>Jason Newsted never leaves Metallica
>St. Anger is never made, and even if it is, it's not as shit
Granted, we'd lose the SKOM documentary and all those lulzworthy moments and we'd probably never see the Mexican Crab become its bassist, but I think they're worthy sacrifices.
