Tye Trujillo, son of Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo, played with his father ex-band Suicidal Tendencies at the SoCal Hoedown in San Pedro, California.
The 15-year-old was recruited by the band to replace bassist Ra Diaz, who was unable to attend (for undisclosed reasons).
Since Tye has had an amazing bass technique since childhood, Suicidal Tendencies decided to thank the young musician for his support with a video on his Facebook page.

Wow… It's been 30 years since Robert Trujillo joined ST and did his firST shows with the band in Europe on tour with Anthrax.That firST show Robert came out like a beaST, going wild on ST all while slapping and bashing his bass with precision and a purpose. After the show, they were all "where did you find this guy?".An amazing bass player, incredible person, and of course also co-founder of Infectious Grooves, that was the STart of a lot of great shows, moments, memories and helping take ST to another level!Flash forward to laST Saturday night in San Pedro at the SoCal Hoedown. HiSTory repeats itself as a young Trujillo STeps on STage and bashed around it like a true Cyco! 🙂Huge thanks to Tye Trujillo for filling in for Ra for this one show. For showing what a bad ass he already is on bass, and at juST 15 years old, has already accomplished a lot, but huge things are STill coming his way. His youthful enthusiasm was contagious, his bass skills undeniable. JuST like Robert and Chloe, we were all super proud of him and an absolute blaST to be able to share a STage with him.On a side note, we warned him, over and over "watch out for Ben, watch out for Ben!". So firST song, "You can't bring me down", and guess what… It's Cyco that knocks him over! Well as we always say, you get knocked down in life, you get back up… And not only did Tye get back up… But with a smile and didn't miss a beat or a STep! There's a lesson there… Be like Tye!Again huge thanks to the Trujillo family and all people that came out to the feSTival to support us.STAY CYCO!ST

See Tye Trujillo playing with Korn in 2017
In 2017 Tye Trujillo has been accompanying Korn on his South American tour, replacing bassist Fieldy, who wasn’t able to be with the group. Remember the passing of the boy, at that time 12 years old, playing without being intimidated by the guys from Korn.
