Scott Weiland and Robert Trujillo’s Sons Debut New Band at Live Event
Noah Weiland, son of Stone Temple Pilots frontman, and Tye Trujillo, son of Metallica bassist, have launched their new band named Blu Weekend at a live event.
AceShowbiz -The band formed by the sons of Scott Weiland and Robert Trujillo made their live debut at the iHollywood Film Fest after-party in Los Angeles on Sunday (27Jun21).
Noah Weiland and Tye Trujillo, who previous played together in Suspect 208 with Slash‘s son London Hudson, performed as Blu Weekend at the bash.
Tye has been a big part of the metal world since he was 12 when he stepped in for Korn bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu when he was unable to tour South America.
He also previously played live with Suicidal Tendencies.
In a 2016 interview, Robert Trujillo insisted he never forced Tye to follow in his footsteps. “I always felt that if he wanted to embrace an instrument, great; I’d try to help him with it.”
In another interview, he gushed about his son being “an amazing bass player and a really great writer. The bass lines that he’s writing and the riffs, I’m like, ‘Man, I wish I had written that.’ “
Just like Tye Trujillo, London Hudson also has another band, playing in Classless Act along with Suspect 208’s guirtarist Niko Tsangaris. They opened for London’s famous dad on a 2018 tour.
London explained in an interview why he chose drums instead of picking up guitar like his father Slash. “I don’t want to live in his shadow, when I started playing in the band. That’s the main reason I don’t play guitar or stringed instruments,” so he said.
