Remember Korn? If you used to wear skate shoes and black hoodies nine sizes too big, then you probably do. The heavy metal band are about to embark on a South American tour, without their regular bassist. He can’t make it due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’. So they drafted in a replacement. Tre Trujillo, son of Metallica‘s Robert Trujillo… Oh. And he’s just TWELVE YEARS OLD!
Here’s what the band said about the bold move in a recent statement: “On April 17 Korn is heading down to South America for a run of dates in Columbia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fieldy is unable to make the shows so the band will be joined by a special guest.”
“Filling in for bass duties will be Tye Trujillo, the 12-year old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo and member of NorCal group The Helmets.”
