Watch The 12-Year-Old Son Of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo Make His Live Debut With Korn

Written by Tom Williams on April 19, 2017

Korn have kicked off their latest South American tour with a new 12-year-old band member.

Tye Trujillo, the 12-year-old son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, has made his live debut with Korn, who he’s set to play bass for on a number of upcoming shows, filling in for Korn bassist Reginald ‘Fieldy’ Arvizu.

Debuting with Korn in Bogotá, Colombia overnight, Tye rocked out with the best of them, sitting in on songs like ‘Freak On A Leash’, ‘Somebody Someone’ and ‘Falling Away From Me’, while ‘Shoots And Ladders’ reportedly included a snippet of Metallica’s ‘One’. Watch footage from the show, below.

Tye already plays bass in his own band The Helmets, and this footage of him and his dad jamming together is further proof that he’s got bass running through his veins.

Korn have also revealed to Music Feeds that they’re plotting a new Australian tour for 2017, while it looks like Metallica may also tour down under later this year.
