Tim ‘Rawbiz’ Williams, one-time bassist for Venice Beach, California’s Suicidal Tendencies has passed away, aged 30. The band announced the sad news via their Facebook page today, although no cause of death has been given as yet. The bassist had been in the group for around four years and contributed his bass playing skills to one track on the most recent Suicidal album ’13.’
The band released the following statement about the bassist, “Tim was a monster on bass running around on stage or 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.”
Williams was an extremely accomplished producer and has performed with and lent his talents to acts like Toni Braxton and Boyz II Men. His talents and contributions to music will be sorely missed and the All Axess team wish his family the best during this time.
