    I only read the press release. I initially thought the "physical damage" he referred to may have been hearing loss...anyone got the 411 on this?

    I don't know either. It could very well be his hearing, but if it was, why wouldn't he have just come right out and said that? It doesn't seem like the kind of thing that Jason would feel the need to hide.

    According to www.encycmet.com, Jason left Metallica because he just wasn't getting his say in the band, something that had been speculated for quite a while.

    He's going to work just about full-time on his solo project, Echobrain.

    I also heard that an amp blew in Jason's ear, and he's got permanent hearing damage, though that definitely doesn't work with the Echobrain story.

    I fear we may never know the truth, similar to a situation in 1999

    Because he realized after this whole Napster thing that the rest of Metallica are just money grubbing pricks and that no one is going to buy any of their new music. He also realized that he's made his money and will continue to get rich off of the back catalog, so he doesn't have to put up with Lars the lizard, Mr Mascara-Kirk, and Mr.Monotone-James to still get paid. Can't say I blame him!!

    You think that they might have gotten some tipps from Gary on how they should act on stage?
