Son of Metallica Bass Player Debuts Onstage with Korn. He’s 12.

Korn was in a bind. Fieldy, their regular bass player, couldn’t make the trip to South America. Where could Korn find a fill in? They just called up Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and asked if his son was busy. Apparently he wasn’t, so Tye Trujillo accompanied Korn to Bogota, Colombia.

Did I mention he’s 12 years old?

Shouldn’t he be in school? Like it grade 7?

  • To hell with school – I hope he was paid well, and if that isn’t an opportunity to learn about a foreign culture for school, then what is?
