Jason Newstead Gets Sued By Good Ole' Boys





Ok, work with me here, because this lawsuit is so lame that you might want to pull away and blow your head off. Jason Newstead, the former bass player of the mighty Metallica, created a side project/new band under the moniker EchoBrain. Stupid name, but I digress. A Dallas-based band, who know more about dollar signs and raping millionaires for all of their cash than playing a tune, have filed a lawsuit against Newstead citing trademark infringement. Their name is Echo Drain (with a ìDî and a space). Allstar reports that the Echo Drain dildos, who have toured with the likes of Willie Nelson, Dead Kennedys, and ìothers,î are seeking more than $100,000 for each infringement in the suit. Apparently Newstead and company knew about the name Echo Drain, and liked it and the power that it posessed so much that he flat out stole it. This brings up the ultimate question to Newstead, ìWhy the hell did you ever leave Metallica, you jackass?î
