MUSIC NEWS: Aaron Lewis "Country Shovel"

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis was asked about the band's guitarist, Mike Mushok, recently joining forces with the group Newsted while Staind continues its current hiatus. Lewis told Loudwire, "I think it’s awesome. It takes pressure off of me having to abandon what I’m really focused on right now. I think it’s great.” Lewis added that he thinks joining a full-on metal act like Newsted has been good for Mushok. Lewis continued about Mushok, "When I met that kid, he was like Yngwie Malmsteen. He was literally the most prolific shredder of a guitar player. I’ve done nothing throughout our entire career except hold him back from doing that; we always simplified everything. I’m so happy for him that he’s finally getting to show everybody how unbelievable of a guitar player he is.”
