Watch Korn’s New 12-year-old Bassist Shred During Tour Debut

When we were 12 years old, we were just trying to get good grades, and this kid is playing bass for Korn.

This past weekend, nu-metal band Korn announced on Facebook that they will be touring their upcoming South America shows with a “special guest.” That special guest happens to be Tye Trujillo, the son of Metallica’s bassist, Robert Trujillo.

“We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye,” said the band in the statement about not having their regular bassist with them. “We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May.”

The long-time bassist (Fieldy) pulled out of the tour due to unforeseen circumstances.

The young Trujillo is currently the bassist for a band called The Helmets. His famous dad has played live with him onstage in the past, which you can watch below.
