After being diagnosed with brain cancer last July, ex-Black Flag bassist C'el Revuelta has died. 

The news of the bassist's passing comes through a GoFundMe page that was set up to raise funds for his medical expenses after he was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma. The page revealed that since his diagnosis last summer, the cancer had effects on his vision and ability to walk.

"Today we lost a wonderful person, our hearts are broken Cel passed away this morning Wednesday May 3rd 2017, he was surrounded by his immediate family," a message on the page reads. "He fought til his last breath. Forever he is loved and will be missed. Love ❤️ You Uncle Cel!!"

Revuelta became a member of Black Flag in 1986, handling the low end for their final tour after replacing Kira Roessler. He rejoined the band's Greg Ginn for a handful of reunion dates in 2003.
