A master of metal bass, Roberto Agustin Trujillo has distinguished himself on stage and on record with Metallica, Suicidal Tendencies, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society, and Infectious Grooves, among others.
Plying his craft with a decidedly funky disposition, Robert varies his tools from traditional four to extended range with deft expertise and purpose.
Inspired by James Jamerson, Jaco Pastorius, Sly Stone’s Larry Graham and Geezer Butler – Robert is a versatile finger, plectrum, slap player. Though he studied music “formally” Trujillo developed his own code for bass charts and arrangements. Among Robert’s main weapons of choice include Fender Precision, his signature Warwick bass, Zon, and Yamaha instruments.
In addition to his well-earned status as a world-class player, Mr. Trujillo was a major force as co-producer in the creation of the Jaco Pastorius documentary and occasionally plays Jaco’s restored “Bass of Doom” in concert.
