Jason Newsted Says Alex Van Halen Approached Him And Joe Satriani About A Possible Van Halen Tribute Tour

During an interview with The Palm Beach Post, Jason Newsted (ex-Metallica) revealed that Alex Van Halen approached him and Joe Satriani (Chickenfoot) about doing a Van Halen tribute tour. The bassist went on to say that he agreed to jam with the drummer and guitarist in California, but he didn’t think they could honor the Van Halen legacy:

“How could you? There’s nobody that can top it, so how do you show it honor? I didn’t want it to be viewed as a money grab. And then it kind of just all fizzled.”
