It's the son of Metallica's Robert Trujillo...
Robert, Tye Trujillo

Korn have recruited a 12 year old bass player for their upcoming South American tour.

Prodigal musician Tye Trujillo is the 12 year old son of Metallica's Robert Trujillo, and will stand in for Korn's regular bass player Fieldy.

The metal giants explain: "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."

Some fans have naturally raised eyebrows at the inclusion of the young musician, but - as you can see in the video below - he's got what can only be qualified as mad skills.
