Metallica Supportive Of Robert Trujillo's Side Projects


(Classic Rock) Robert Trujillo says his bandmates couldn't be more supportive of his various projects outside of Metallica. As well as his work with the thrash giants, Trujillo has been working hard on his Jaco Pastorius movie and also performs and records with his funk collective Mass Mental.

And frontman James Hetfield and guitarist Kirk Hammett have both encouraged Trujillo's Jaco documentary. Trujillo tells Metallica's So What blog: "I remember James sent me an iPhone photo that a friend of his took who happened to be at the Sweetwater Cafe event we had done for Jaco in Mill Valley.

"And he said it was really cool, which made me feel good. Why? Because he said his friend was there, and he said it was awesome. Rather than saying, you know, 'What the f*** are you doing?'

"So that made me feel good, and the fact that Kirk actually came out and jammed with me that night. You know, it was really, really fun, and he helped me celebrate something that's important to me, so that was really, really cool and encouraging." Read more here.
