Suicidal Tendencies bassist Rawbiz dies

Suicidal Tendencies bassist Tim ‘Rawbiz’ Williams has died, the band have confirmed.

He was a member of Mike Muir’s outfit from 2011 until recently, and appeared on last year’s album 13.

The band say in a brief statement: “It’s with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of Tim. He 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 who were touched by his playing, and him personally.”

No further details have been released.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
