Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo recently attended Sirius XM for an episode of ‘Worth the hype?’ and answered if some of his experiences were overhyped or underhyped. He talked about the first time he rode a private jet and revealed that it was with Ozzy Osbourne.
Rob Trujillo was in Suicidal Tendencies for six years when he left the band in 1995. After leaving Suicidal Tendencies, he didn’t join any band for eight years. He continued to play bass with musicians such as Ozzy Osbourne, Jerry Cantrell, and Black Label Society. He joined Metallica in 2003 and has been with them ever since.
Because he worked with Ozzy Osbourne before, it is not a surprise that his first experience going on a private jet would be with Osbourne. Trujillo was asked if his experience of a private jet ride was overhyped or underhyped, so he replied by saying, ‘both.’ It must have been a unique experience to ride a private jet for the first time with a unique personality like Osbourne.
Osbourne is a musician who has been on the headlines multiple times due to his actions under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Trujillo stated that the jet ride was a ‘memorable’ experience and laughed, which could be because of Osbourne’s actions on the plane.
Here is what Trujillo said about his first private jet experience with Osbourne:
“My first private jet ride was with Ozzy. I mean, I don’t know if there are both possibilities. Amazing moment in my career, you know ‘I made it! I am on a plane with Ozzy.’ But, at the same time, there’s nothing wrong with a business class or first class sometimes. It was memorable, that’s for sure.”
