Suicidal Tendencies released the following statement earlier this morning:
“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.”
No official cause of death was given. It is believed that he was only 30 years old at the time of his death. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music, Williams went on to work the low end for artists like Kesha Cole, Boys II Men and Toni Braxton before landing the Suicidal gig. Our condolences to his family.
