Rob Trujillo’s Son Is Digging The Art Of Metallica

Metallica guitarist Rob Trujillo’s son Tye recently sat down to have a chat with Chuck Armstrong for Loudwire Nights’ Artist Spotlight. During the interview when Chuck asked what it’s like to be a fan of the band that his dad is a big part of, Tye replied:

“It’s pretty normal for me because Metallica inspired me to play music. When I listen to Metallica, I just think of it as a band that I looked up to growing up. It’s weird that it’s not weird, you know?”

It’s not been weird for Tye since he had previously shared with Loudwire that when he was learning to play the guitar he asked his dad to teach him Cliff Burton’s bass parts of the track ‘(Anesthesia) – Pulling Teeth’ from the ‘Kill ‘Em All’ album.

So when Chuck asked whether it was hard for him to listen to and appreciate Metallica as a fan, Tye said:

“I think it’s normal. I’m a fan of the band. I like their music. So when I listen, I’m just digging the music and the art of it.”

Besides growing up with Metallica and enjoying his father’s music, Tye has also been in several bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Feed the Beast and more recently OTTTO. With their debut album ‘Life Is a Game’ instead of focusing on a single genre, the music can fit into multiple boxes. Tye also told Chuck:

“All I can tell you is that you’ll hear our sound and you can identify it with whatever you think.”
