Korn made their name– and subsequently helped define the idea of nu-metal — on their unique five-string bass sound. So, it’s a good thing that their newest member, the 12-year-old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, knows how to simultaneously slap and headbang with the best of them. Replacing your bassist with a kid is still a stunt, but it’s a stunt with some weight behind it.
Check out fan-shot video of Tye Trujillo’s first performance with the ’90s rap-metal act in Bogota, Colombia up top and below. Clearly the band are confident in his abilities. they even gave the newcomer a solo at one point in the show.
