Some really interesting music news as Korn have revealed today that Robert Trujillo’s (Metallica) 12 year old son will join them for the South American leg of their tour later this month.
Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu is unable to make the tour “due to unforeseen circumstances.” Tye Trujillo plays in a band called the Helmet and will cover “Fieldy” for the shows in Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru. “Fieldy” will be back for the North American leg of their tour, which starts May 6th.
Korn have released a statement saying, “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.
“We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye.
“We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May.”
Check out Tye playing bass for The Helmets below. Fair play to him, he can certainly play!
