    While their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is less than two weeks away, Metallica has just confirmed a reunion with longtime bassist Jason Newsted for the ceremony. Speaking to The Pulse of Radio, guitarist Kirk Hammett said, "Jason Newsted will be there, and he will be playing with us at one point. We went as a band when Black Sabbath was being inducted, and at that time Blondie was also being inducted that night. And there was so many politics and so much drama that, you know, we collectively said to each other, 'We don't want any of that,' because it kind of, it puts a really bad, sour note on the whole celebration itself."

    Fuse will air the whole Hall of Fame shebang on Saturday, April 4.
