    Robert Trujillo's son has very good taste in music. The Metallica bassist laughs, "My four-year-old boy loves Tool! When I take him to school, we're playing Tool all the time, so I definitely connect with them. There's a lot of bass in that group which is nice. They're a great band for a bass player to listen to. So believe it or not, my son and I are going through a big Tool phase!"

    It's good to hear that Robert's started his son off early on the good stuff. However, Robert's personal tastes are very diverse. In this exclusive feature for ARTISTdirect.com's Grammy page, the Metallica bass master opened up his iTunes and gave us a look at his playlist.

    Check out Metallica's Grammy nominated Death Magnetic, and see what Robert's spinning below—only on ARTISTdirect.com.

    Robert Trujillo's Playlist

    1. ToolEverything

    2. Jimi HendrixEverything

    "I just love Jimi Hendrix!"

    3. Black SabbathEverything

    "I always reconnect with my old Sabbath records as much as I can."

    4. MnemicEveything

    5. MeshuggahEverything

    "I go through these real technical phases, and I listen to bands like Meshuggah and Mnemic. It's stuff that's a little bit complex and takes a lot of patience. Lately, I've been jamming a lot to our music. I play through the new songs so I can keep fresh and keep them in my head. I can act crazier on stage if I can play them with proficiency."
