A short documentary about Tye Trujillo’s time playing with Korn has been released.
Earlier this year, he joined Korn for seven tour dates after original bassist Fieldy was unable to commit due to family obligations.
Tye is the 12-year-old son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, who narrates the short film. Korn’s official videographer, Sébastien Paquet, created a 15-minute film, titled ‘Korn and the Prodigy Son.’
Speaking of his time with his son on the road, Robert Trujillo told Rolling Stone: “I didn’t have to help him with anything. When you see your kid with that much pride, energy and focus, it was a beautiful experience.
“He doesn’t even play five-string bass, really. And he’s not a slap-bass player per se; he slaps for fun. He had an afternoon with Munky, the guitar player, where they ran through the songs, and I was there basically to offer him snacks and water.”
