Joining the ranks of famous musician's kids bands like Next To None, another little tyke is about to take up his father's profession. Korn just issued this announcement about bringing on a 12 year old session bassist for upcoming shows:

"On April 17th, 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. Fieldy will resume Korn’s 2017 tour at Carolina Rebellion on May 6."
