Ex-Metallica Bassist Jason Newsted Displaying Art

The rhythm section of Metallica certainly digs art. While drummer Lars Ulrich is widely known for having collected an expansive cache of artwork, which he can be seen auctioning off in Some Kind of Monster, ex-bassist Jason Newsted, who bolted from the band in 2001, is displaying his artwork at a San Francisco gallery. Newsted told a local newspaper that he created drawings and paintings with his arm in a sling and that he threw shit at the canvas with a spatula. That's unorthodox and unconventional, for sure.

Should Newsted stick to playing bass? Was quitting 'Tallica the biggest mistake he ever could have made?
