As we reported last week, Tye Trujillo, the 12-year-old son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, is playing bass for Korn during a run of South American shows.

Most of our readers were dubious, given this smells an awful lot like a publicity stunt for a once-relevant band, but footage has emerged of his first show with the band, in Colombia, and it would appear the kid has chops.

Check out footage of him performing below; there is no word as to whether he is required to hate his dad as part of his new role.
