La Storia

Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the whirling dervish of creative energy that is Robert Trujillo, Metallica’s four-string horseman.
This baddest of motherpluckers (he favors fingers over pick when he plays that bass!) enjoys his instrument to the farthest corners of devotion and simply never ever stops honing his craft, often burning the midnight oil at HQ just working on his chops.
The Venice, CA born Trujillo was exposed to many different types of music growing up, from Led Zeppelin to Motown with hunky chunks’ funk in the mix too, all of which gave him a voracious appetite for music.
Combined with an inherent love of surfing and skateboard culture, it was inevitable that Rob would join Suicidal Tendencies in 1989, thanks to his high school friend (and Suicidal guitarist) Rocky George.
Rob went on to form Infectious Grooves with Suicidal frontman Mike Muir, before teaming up with Mike Bordin in 1995 as the backbone of Ozzy’s band for what was a rock-steady rhythm section.
Rob’s name was first whispered in the Metallicamp during Suicidal’s support tour with Metallica during the Summer Shit tour of ’94, his rip-roaring performances raising eyes, thus when it came time to consider who the next Metallica bassist was going to be in 2002, Rob was quickly invited to audition.
And on February 24, 2003, Rob walked into HQ to be greeted by a round of applause from his new bandmates, Hetfield, Ulrich and Hammett. Their journey thus far has been enormously fruitful, Death Magnetic proving to be somewhat of a renaissance release for the band in 2008, and it could be said that Rob’s enthusiasm and sheer hunger for the music has allowed the band to enjoy re-visiting some far-reaching corners of their catalog.
Rob also been produced a documentary film about the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, titled Jaco: A Documentary Film.
When not accumulating tens of thousands of Southwest Airlines miles traveling between NorCal and SoCal, Rob enjoys spending family time with wife Chloe, daughter Lula and son Tye, who is following directly in Dad’s footsteps as the bassist in his own band, the Helmets!
