Heavy rockers Voivod are so thrilled to land former Metallica star Jason Newsted as a guest on their new album, they've shelved release plans to allow the bassist to recover after hurting his arm in a freak accident. Newsted reportedly tore his bicep and rotator cuff trying to catch a bass that had fallen off an amplifier last October (06), forcing him to pull out of a tour with supergroup Rock Star: SUPERNOVA. But he is on the mend and will record his bass lines separately to Voivod. Drummer MICHEL LANGEVIN (corr) says, "He needs time to recover from the surgery he had."
