Watch ROBERT TRUJILLO's 15-Year-Old Son Perform With SUICIDAL TENDENCIES At 'SoCal Hoedown'

Tye Trujillo, the 15-year-old son of METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, played bass with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES this past Saturday night (October 5) at the SoCal Hoedown in San Pedro, California. He was filling in for regular SUICIDAL TENDENCIES bassist Ra Diaz, who was unable to make the gig for reasons that have not been disclosed.

Earlier today, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES posted video footage of Saturday's concert, along with the following message: "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."

METALLICA shared video of Tye performing with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and wrote in an accompanying caption: "Like father, like son!! So proud of Rob's son Tye for bringing it full circle and throwing down with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES last weekend!"

When he was just 12 years old, Tye Trujillo filled in for bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu for KORN's South American tour after Fieldy was unable to make the shows due to "unforeseen circumstances."

Robert Trujillo was first invited to join SUICIDAL TENDENCIES for a European tour in 1989 supporting East Coast thrashers ANTHRAX. While with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, Robert appeared on some of the band's most successful albums: "Lights, Camera, Action" (1990), "The Art Of Rebellion" (1992) and "Still Cyco After All These Years" (1993). During Trujillo's years with SUICIDAL, Muir heard some of Robert's homemade demos and they collaborated on a funkier, more progressive sound under the name INFECTIOUS GROOVES. They produced a number of albums such as "The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move..." (1991), "Sarsippius' Ark" (1993) and "Groove Family Cyco" (1994).

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.

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.
