Migs Blog: What were you doing at 12?

April 11, 2017

So when I was 12 or 13… I was in a band, we were called “Elderly Destruction”, and we did our best impression of bands like Nuclear Assault, Overkill, D.R.I., etc with our attempt at being a bad ass thrash metal band. 

We had one problem… we were not very good. 

Need proof…check it out:

When I look back on those days, I chalk it up to being too young to be that good, but thanks Tye Trujillo for pooping all over that theory.

Who is Tye Trujillo?  Well he is KoRn’s temporary bassist…and he is 12 years old.


KoRn is about to play some South American dates that their bassist Fieldy can’t play (he will be back with the band for Pain In The Grass), so they enlisted the 12 year old son of Robert Trujillo – the bassist from Metallica.

Here's the thing… the apple definitely is not falling far from the tree, as Tye is a damn good bassist.  Check him out with his band, The Helmets.

I can’t wait to see videos from his stint with KoRn…Tye looks like a 12 year old, shocking I know…since again, he is 12!  So seeing this kid up on stage with KoRn is going to be awesome!
