BLU WEEKEND is a new band that features the sons of late STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland and METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo who made their live debut this past Sunday (June 27) at the iHollywood Film Fest after-party at Woman’s Club Of Hollywood.
Noah Weiland and Tye Trujillo previous played together in the outfit SUSPECT208, which was the short-lived band that also featured GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash’s son London Hudson on drums.
When Tye was asked by the blairingout show how BLU WEEKEND’s sound differs from that of SUSPECT208, he replied: “I guess we have more of a punk vibe. What we’re gonna play tonight is gonna be more of a punk vibe to it. ‘Cause we’re gonna play a song [called] ‘Shark Attack’, playing one of Noah’s old songs. So it should be pretty fun.”
Tye filled in for bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu on KORN’s South American tour when he was just 12 years old, after Fieldy was unable to make the shows due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Asked if he is open to playing with KORN again now that Fieldy is once again sitting out of the band’s upcoming tour, Tye said: “I’m ready. I know the songs from a while back, so I have my experience playing. If they’re interested, I’m obviously more than down to go play with them.”
