Rob Trujillo’s 15 year old son plays with Suicidal Tendencies

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.

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.
