Sacred Reich, “Jason (Newsted) was an instrumental figure in the formative days of Sacred Reich.”

Sacred Reich: “Happy Birthday Jason. Jason was an instrumental figure in the formative days of Sacred Reich. He was a constant cheerleader for our band. Whether it was singing our praises to Metal Blade Records before we had a deal or putting our demo on the backside of interview tapes he would send out to magazines around the world. Jason wrote our first bio, gave us his mailing list so we could send out our demos, role modeled how to be and championed our band to anyone that would listen. When he joined Metallica he wore our shirt in photos and arenas across the globe. We are eternally grateful to Jason for his love and support. Peace and love forever. ✌️❤️🙏”
