“It’s with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of bassists Tim ‘Rawbiz’ Williams. Tim played bass for Suicidal Tendencies for almost four years until recently.
Tim was a monster on bass, running around on stage in the pit, giving his all, even when his body wasn’t at it’s best.
We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally.”
