Metallica Reveal Bass Playing Fourth Member
Former Ozzy bass player Rob Trujillo has joined metal supergroup Metallica
Metallica have announced via their website that they now are a ‘full unit’ again. Bass player Rob Trujillo has joined the band after being with a string of metal bands over the last ten years. Metallica first got to know Trujillo in 1993 when he was part of the legendary hardcore/metal band Suicidal Tendencies. They said that they had been fans of the bass player since the early 90’s. They played together with Suicidal Tendencies in Europe back in 1993 as part of the ‘Nowhere Else to Roam’ tour. They also saw him again during 1994’s ‘Summer Shit’ tour. They also said that they were impressed by his ‘roaring bass style and his very cool, unique vibe onstage’.

Rob was also one of the masterminds behind the 90' cult band Infectious Grooves. He started Infectious together with Mike Muir, the lead singer of Suicidal. Infectious delivered classic album titles like 'Plague That Makes Your Booty Move.' He then he joined Ozzy Osbourne in 1996

Rob Trujillo said “I must say Ozzy, Sharon, Zakk, Mike Bordin, all the team and family members mean the world to me. Love and respect, my family 100 percent. I am very stoked, excited and look forward to my new journey with my Metallica brothers.”

Metallica went on to say that it had taken a long time to find the right bass player and that being a good bass player is important but that it was also very important that whoever they found would fit in as a family member, a brother with a huge vibe. They wanted a fourth band member, not just a new bass player.
