Rumor has it that Jason Newsted turned 50 this year. I call B.S. on that. Something's just not right, or at least not fair.

How could a heavy metal icon like "Jasonic" - a man who played and partied with both Metallica AND Ozzy, for God's sake - still look the same as he did when I saw him decades ago? And how can he still rock so damn hard?

Anyway, Newsted's new band totally crushed it Saturday, and their debut full length album, "Heavy Metal Music," doesn't even drop until August 6th.

Check out the photos and decide for yourself. Is it clean living or a secret deal with El Diablo? Whatever works, I guess. Just keep the metal coming, man!
