So apparently Dave isn't responsible for Jason Newsted getting kicked off of the Soundwave Festival. 

Megadeth released a statement denying any responsibility for Newsted being dropped by the festival and that Jason and Dave are friends and this story got blown out of proportion. 

Jason Newsted posted on Facebook that he would be releasing an announcement soon

Hopefully soon Jason will clear the air so he and Dave can go back to being BFFs.
