KORN Release Awesome Doc on Touring with METALLICA Bassist Robert Trujillo's 12-Year Old Son, Tye
When Korn went on their South American tour this past April, bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu couldn't make it. The band went a pretty unlikely route for a replacement and recruited Tye Trujillo, 12-year old son of Metallica bassist and overall killer bass player Robert Trujillo. Footage from the crowd surfaced, and Tye looked like he didn't miss a beat. The big question was how did it all go down?
All is answered in a new mini-documentary Korn just released over at Rolling Stone. The majority over the narration is from an interview with Robert Trujillo, who reveals just how big an influence he had over the band's formation. Turns out Robert hand a hand in writing "Divine" and Korn were hoping he would produce their first album, but Trujillo opted instead to go on tour. The story of how Tye got to tour with Korn is worth the viewing alone.
