Today is the 53th birthday of Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo. We share a video that shows how he’s involved in Metallica. You can watch the video from below.

When bassist Jason Newsted left Metallica in 2001, the band was in a tough spot in terms of finding his replacement.

The need for a bassist arose during the recording of their 2003 studio album, St. Anger, which happened to coincide with the filming of a new documentary about the band, 2004’s Some Kind of Monster.
