(Radio.com) Korn fans raised eyebrows when the band announced that Tye Trujillo, the 12-year-old son of Metallica's Robert Trujillo, would join the band for South American tour dates.

The preteen bassist is talented by all accounts, but it still raises the question: "Is this really necessary?" There are plenty of grown-up bassists who don't need school permission to join Korn on a nu-metal tour of Latin America, but then again. "We're having fun! He's having a great time," Korn guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer told NME. 'His dad's out here with us, just hanging out, shootin' the s---- and catching up. [Tye] knows like 17, 18 Korn songs, and he knows them really well--it's crazy. All the stops, and the breaks' it's crazy to see somebody that young so talented. He's gonna be a professional musician, and to know that at that early of an age is just inspiring."

You might wonder if a 12-year-old would feel a bit out-of-place on the road with guys in their mid- and late 40s. Tye, who was born in 2005, seems to be adjusting to his newfound fame like a pro.

"When we go to the shows, he's got people wanting his picture and his autograph - he's a little overwhelmed, but he's handling himself just like his dad, which is cool, collected and modest," Shaffer said. Read more here.
