You read that right. Nu-metal titans Korn have hired Tye, the 12-year old son of Metallica bassist Rob Trujillo, to play during their upcoming shows in Latin America.
Taking to their Facebook page, the band released the following statement:
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fieldy is unable to make the shows so the band will be joined by a special guest. Filling in for bass duties will be Tye Trujillo, the 12-year old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo and member of NorCal group The Helmets.”
While this will merely be a short stint, with the regular Korn bassist returning on May 6th, the band cannot help but be admired for this bold move. And it’ll be some great work experience for Tye.
