Korn’s New Bassist Isn’t Exactly What You’d Expect

Now I know what you’re thinking. Why are we talking about Korn? But, stick with me because according to the Huffington Post– I’ll use their joke – “there’s a new child of the Korn.”

Posting on their facebook Korn said, “On April 17 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.”

While it’s unknown what happened to original bassist Fieldy, he is said to rejoin the band when they hit the U.S. again on May 6th at the Carolina Rebellion.
