Before Robert Trujillo played bass in Metallica, he was in a few other bands, one of which was Suicidal Tendencies. Trujillo played with the band between 1989 and 1995. Now in 2019, Trujillo's son Tye Trujillo filled in for usual Suicidal Tendencies bassist Ra Diaz at the SoCal Hoedown.
Tye Trujillo has also filled in for Korn live. The kid is just damn good at his instrument and clearly practices a ton, which also makes sense given who his father is and his profession.
Wow… It's been 30 years since Robert Trujillo joined ST and did his firST shows with the band in Europe on tour with Anthrax.
That firST show Robert came out like a beaST, going wild on ST all while slapping and bashing his bass with precision and a purpose. After the show, they were all "where did you find this guy?".
An amazing bass player, incredible person, and of course also co-founder of Infectious Grooves, that was the STart of a lot of great shows, moments, memories and helping take ST to another level!
Flash forward to laST Saturday night in San Pedro at the SoCal Hoedown. HiSTory repeats itself as a young Trujillo STeps on STage and bashed around it like a true Cyco! ?
Huge thanks to Tye Trujillo for filling in for Ra for this one show. For showing what a bad ass he already is on bass, and at juST 15 years old, has already accomplished a lot, but huge things are STill coming his way. His youthful enthusiasm was contagious, his bass skills undeniable.
JuST like Robert and Chloe, we were all super proud of him and an absolute blaST to be able to share a STage with him.
On a side note, we warned him, over and over "watch out for Ben, watch out for Ben!". So firST song, "You can't bring me down", and guess what… It's Cyco that knocks him over!
Well as we always say, you get knocked down in life, you get back up… And not only did Tye get back up… But with a smile and didn't miss a beat or a STep! There's a lesson there… Be like Tye!
Again huge thanks to the Trujillo family and all people that came out to the feSTival to support us.
