Robert Trujillo (Metallica) Gets His Son A Bass Gig With Korn

From, this is totally cool news: Robert Trujillo, the bass player from Metallica, has a son that is just as awesome as he is at bass. Apparently, his son has been playing playing big shows with the band Korn in Brazil!

As we reported here last week, Tye Trujillo, the 12-year-old son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, is filling in for Korn bassist Fieldy during that band’s South American run.

Yup! Here’s a video of him absolutely shredding it on stage:

Wow, can you believe that? Bass playing runs in that family. Apparently, you can catch him in May, too:

Tye played his first show with Korn on April 17, and you can watch video from it below. The youngster, who plays for a SoCal band called the Helmets, will perform with the group through April 29 (see tour dates below). Fieldy returns on May 6 to perform with Korn at Carolina Rebellion.
