I haven't had a chance to see a Metallica show with their new bassist, Rob Trujilo. I was wondering if he did a Bass solo act like Jason Newsted. Just curious since hes a great bassist..

And if so, how was it? And what was it from..?

Thanks..

Truijilo actually has years of experience over Cliff Burton, and is arguably better skill-wise.

Cliff, however brought an influence to the band that can never be brought back. Cliff was a GREAT bassist, but once you face the facts you come to realise Rob has more skill. Cliff = Overrated at times, Rob = underestimated at times...

As far as Jason, he was a good bassist. He really didn't bring much to the band, not that he was given much creative control anyway. He also didnt have any of the skill that Cliff or Rob posess. I can say, though, that he was good at backup vocals.
