Former METALLICA Bassist JASON NEWSTED Sells Montana Ranch
July 1, 2021
According to Trulia, former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted has sold his ranch in historic Sula, Montana. The listing price was $4.95 million but the final sale price hasn't been disclosed.
The property, named "Rockin JN Ranch," which had belonged to Newsted for more than a decade, was previously put on the market for the same price four years ago, but that price came down by $450,000 in July 2019 to $4.5 million. It was eventually removed from the market before being relisted in June 2020.
Newsted and his wife Nicole have been longtime residents of Jupiter, Florida.
Last October, Newsted bought a home on Skaneateles Lake in the village of Skaneateles, New York for $6.1 million.
In late 2019, Jason sold his Walnut Creek, California house for $2.3 million.
Seven years ago, the now-58-year-old Newsted canceled an appearance at Australia's Soundwave festival with his band NEWSTED, citing "private and personal circumstances." The cancelation followed more than a year of intense touring and promotional activity surrounding the release of NEWSTED's "Metal" EP and follow-up album, "Heavy Metal Music", both of which were positively received by the critics and fans alike.
After staying mostly out of the public eye for a couple of years, Newsted rejoined Canadian metal innovators VOIVOD on stage during June 2016 concert at Slim's in San Francisco, California. He has since formed a couple of new acoustic projects, one of which completed a short West Coast tour.
Jason left METALLICA back in 2001 but was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, along with guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett, and the man who replaced him, bassist Robert Trujillo, in 2009.
