    It's Official: ROBERT TRUJILLO Joins METALLICA! - Feb. 24, 2003

    As first predicted here last week, METALLICA have officially announced the addition of bassist Robert Trujillo to the group's ranks.

    Trujillo, a former member of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and OZZY OSBOURNE, fills the slot left vacant by the departure of Jason Newsted.

    "We've all known, and have been huge fans of Rob since the early '90s when he was a part of the legendary hardcore/metal band SUICIDAL TENDENCIES," the band said in a statement posted at www.metallica.com. "We got to know Rob when we played together with SUICIDAL in Europe 1993, during the 'Nowhere Else To Roam' tour. We were impressed by Rob's roaring bass style and his very cool, unique vibe onstage, things we got to see again during the '94' 'Summer Shit' tour when SUICIDAL joined forces with us.

    "My visions of Rob are when we did Summer Shit 94 Tour with SUICIDAL, and DANZIG," METALLICA frontman James Hetfield said. "I remember being blown away by the fierce-ness and seeing Rob, as this monster on bass. He brings an awesome new strength to the band, and makes us step up."

    "I must say Ozzy, Sharon, Zakk, Mike Bordin, all the team and family members mean the world to me. Love and respect, my family 100 percent. I am very stoked, excited and look forward to my new journey with my METALLICA brothers. STEP UP!" revealed a pumped up Rob Trujillo.

    "We've taken a long time to find the right bass player for us," continued the band's statement. "Obviously being a good bass player is important (!!) but it was also very important that whoever we found would fit in as a family member, a brother with a huge vibe. We wanted a fourth band member, not just a new bass player.

    "I am very excited for Rob to be in the band and it feels like we are a new band, yet again," said guitarist Kirk Hammett.

    "When Rob came to San Francisco the first time and jammed with us, we all felt this incredible magic between the four of us. It was just something that we could not describe, we all just knew it. Bob Rock told us right after the jam, that it sounded like a fucking 747 taking off!!"

    "I am soo fucking excited to be a full unit again," said drummer Lars Ulrich. "The last two years of just being the 3 of us have taught me soo much about myself, about James and Kirk and about METALLICA. And to welcome Rob into METALLICA in 2003 after all the growth and soul searching we've been through for the last two years, feels so fucking awesome. Being at full strength again is at this moment indescribable.

    "We're fuckin' bristling with new energy, new respect, new vibes and a huge fucking appetite for everything METALLICA is. Having Rob here, and him choosing to become a part of our family, will enable us to get to yet another level. So welcome Rob!"

    Go hispanics! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] .It wouldve been nice if Jason would come back,but that was never gonna happen,or Mike Inez from Alice In Chains,that wouldve been sweet,but either way good luck and congratulations Rob Trujillo.
    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows

    Cool choice, yes, but I swear I read a few days ago that he was joining Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society.

    He's a good bass player, but I don't like his stage presence. I hope that Ozzy get's someone cooler to replace him.

    Congrats!!! Too bad he'll have to play shit like, "hero of the day", and "when it sleeps",

    When Jason came in he got to play Master of Puppets, One, Battery, Whiplash, etc. etc.

    Metallica 2003 sucks ass no matter who plays bass...they fuckin' blew it!!!

    I posted the bit about him joining Black Label. I found on a UK rock site. Must have been a rumor. Sorry about that, I try to post only legit info. It didn't cite a source so I should have known better.

    The quote was,
    "Trujillo Joins Black Label Society Posted Wednesday, 19 February, 2003
    Ozzy bassist Robert Trujillo is to join Black Label Society for their upcoming tour to promote new album ‘The Blessed Hellride’. This effectively knocks him out of the running for the vacant slot in Metallica."
