Published Aug 27, 2014Tim "Rawbiz" Williams, a touring bassist who played with Californian thrash-metal crossover titans Suicidal Tendencies, has passed away.
Details are scarce, but Suicidal Tendencies announced his passing with the following statement:
It's with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of bassist 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 its best. We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally.
In addition to playing bass with the band in a live setting, Williams appeared on one song on Suicidal Tendencies' 2013 comeback LP, 13.
