Korn Recruit Rob Trujillo’s Son, 12, As New Bassist

Tye Trujillo has been recruited by nu-metallers Korn to cover for Fieldy, their regular bassist, on their latest tour. Tye, who is just 12 years old, is currently the bassist for a band called The Helmets, but is best known for being the son of Metallica’s crab-walking four-stringer Rob Trujillo, who replaced Jason Newstead in 2003. Check out a statement from Korn below:
