Before joining Metallica, Robert Trujillo honed his skills with crossover legends Suicidal Tendencies. Trujillo joined the band in 1989 and played on every record from 1990’s *Lights… Camera… Revolution!* to 1994’s *Suicidal for Life*.

Although he left the group nearly 30 years ago, Trujillo returned to play with Suicidal Tendencies on October 27 in Mexico City, filling in for his son Tye, the band’s current bassist. Speaking to Metal Hammer before the show, Robert expressed his enduring connection to his former bandmates.

“It’s incredible to see what’s happened with Suicidal over the years, especially now with my son [Tye] playing bass in the band,” he said.

Trujillo also admitted to feeling a natural sense of pride seeing Tye succeed with the group. Tye has not only been playing with Suicidal Tendencies but has also formed his own band, OTTTO, and provided the iconic “Master of Puppets” solo for Netflix’s *Stranger Things*.
