The rock band Korn has an interesting guest star on their current tour.

FOX's Laura Ingle reports:

Many kids aspire to be rock stars when they grow up, but what if you could be a rock star while still being a kid? That's what is happening to Tye Trujillo, the 12-year-old son of Metallica bass player Robert Trujillo. Tye Trujillo, who is the spitting image of his father with long hair he can headbang with, will be serving as stand in bassist for the metal band Korn as the hardrocking giants tour South America.

Korn announced its pint-sized edition on social media, siting unforeseen circumstances with their regular bass player "Fieldy", who will be back with the band in May.

Tye Trujillo is no stranger to the stage, he's gigged steadily for several years in his own band of middle schoolers named the Helmets, performing at Lollapalooza's Kids of Palooza and at the Bottle Rock Festival in Napa California, where he jammed on stage with his famous dad, giving concertgoers a good taste of metal to go along with their Merlot.
