Rock bass player Jason Curtis Newsted has an estimated net worth of $40 Million as of 2012 amassed upwards of a profession with some of the most important names in rock music. A native of Battle Creek, Michigan, he first rose to prominence after joining the group Metallica in 1986 following the death of their preceding bass player, Cliff Burton and played on a number of their largest selling records, eventually leaving them over a difference of opinion in 2001. Since then, he’s played together with his side project, Echobrain along with short stints with Ozzy Osbourne and Voivod and continues to record and tour, along with establishing Chophouse Records, a California-based label and recording studio before lately forming another new group just understood this time as Newsted.

Following a shoulder injury in 2006 Ozzy was temporarily unable to play music, instead turning to art to be able to express himself, and creating many exceptionally original works, some of which were shown at San Francisco’s Michaela Art gallery in 2010. Newsted also makes time for more philanthropic work, sitting in the board of the charity, Little Kids Rock, which provides free instruments to under privileged children.
