Robert Trujillo gotthe job of being Metallica's new bassist and family that will doubtlessfit this most righteous and cheerful of Southern Californians like a glove.Although he sometimes does use a pick, Trujillo is best known as a finger-playin' bass monster who's dexterity, tones and attitudehave seen him grace the bass of Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves and OzzyOsbourne's band since his first professional work with Suicidal in 1989. It allstems back to a childhood filled with variety and spice. Growing up in Venice Beach "Dog Town", Trujillo heard everything, from Led Zeppelinto Motown with a chunk of funk in between. Joined with a young love of surfing,Trujillo developed a rhythm and a vibe that saw him play with a variety of localbands through his early 20s until he met Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies via hisHigh School buddy, Suicidal guitarist Rocky George. the two got on infamously well,and thus began a rich and fruitful relationship which saw Rob establish himself asone of the most exciting bass talents in the rock world. In the early '90s, he and Muir formed the experimental funk-rockers InfectiousGrooves, and then in the mid-'90s Trujillo joined up with Ozzy Osbourne. Togetherwith drummer Mike Bordin, Trujillo formed one of rock music's most soild andreliable rhythm units.Rob's name first floated by the Metallicamp during Suicidal's supporting role on theSummer Shed tour of '94, when all the band noted his enthusiastic style andperformances. Thus when it was time to consider who could step up and take the bassfull-time in Metallica, Rob's name was an obvious choice.By all accounts, Trujillo's audition dared the band NOT to give him the job, andeven producer Bob Rock was heard saying how complete and unequivocally whole theband sounded with Rob playing.And so it was that on Thursday, February 24th 2003, Robert Trujillo walked in to theHQ and saw Ulrich, Hammett and Hetfield immediately start applauding him. Again, Robis the perfect fit, a calm, even-keeled man with experience and full bassprops...and genuinely one of the nicest guys around. It all adds up to the 4thmember, an equal part of the Metallica family and an exciting new stage inMetallihistory.
