Baby Korn! Metal legends Korn recruit 12 year old son of Metallica bassist for South American Tour

Tye Trujillo certainly has a lot going for him. Not only is he lucky enough to be the son of the famous Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo but now, at the tender age of just 12, he is living the daydream of every teen metal-head and playing bass himself for the metal giants Korn. Talent clearly runs in the family!

Korn, famous for such tracks as “Freak on a leash” and “Twisted Transistor”, had previously announced that due to unforeseen circumstances their usual bassist Reginald ‘Fieldy’ Arvizu would not be able to fulfil his duties for the South American leg of their 2017 tour. Instead a “special guest” would be filling in for him until his return later in the year.

To the surprise and delight of everyone enters little 12 year old Tye, looking every bit the part, with his gloriously metal long locks, traditionally metal monochrome attire and acting like a true professional.

Tye is hardly a new comer to the spotlight though as since the age of eight he has been a member of the Helmets, a rock group that has performed at festivals like BottleRock, Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza’s Kidsapalooza stage. He even lets his dad join him on stage!

Korn have said on their new addition, “We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye.”

I never thought that I would be jealous of a 12 year old but I suppose 2017 really is full of surprises!
