One of the great publicity stunts of the year goes to Korn for enlisting a 12-year-old to play bass for a few South American gig because Fieldy had to step down till May 6th for “unforeseen circumstances.”
That 12-year-old bass player is Tye Trujillo, the son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo!
Some fan shot video has emerged showing the 12-year-old rocking the shows. One video even has him smashing out a bass solo before handing it over to the drummer for a drum solo! Nice.
The kid appears to be doing his job and having fun. Fans seem into it, 10/10!
During “Falling Away From Me,” Jonathon Davis yells, “Go Tye!” while he slappa da bass beside some Stay Puft Marshmellow Man looking stage dancer.
