Hello everyone and welcome to Navel Gazing: your look back in the week in Punknews.

This is John G and we're closing out the summer with a festival review! (Yeah, yeah, we all know summer actually ends in September, but you're in school and I'm in work... which is every day for me, so really, I guess I don't get a summer at all...) But, check back tomorrow for a cool photo set from said cool summer festival!
Today's reviews are:
Tim "Rawbiz" Williams, bassist of Suicidal Tendencies, has died. The long-running band released a statement on their Facebook page.
"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."Williams joined the band in 2011. Previously he had worked with other artists such as Toni Braxton and Boys II Men, as well as appearing on the 2009 series "Making the Band," which followed producer/artist Diddy as he searched for members of his backing band.
Our condolences to his family and friends.
The Copyrights are heading to Europe for a string of dates in September.
The band is also streaming another song from their new release, Report. For the Love of Punk is streaming the song, titled "Basement." You can listen to the song here.

Bruce Springsteen is working on releasing a graphic novel. The comic will be based on the Boss' 2009 song "Outlaw Pete" which was based off the children's book, Brave Cowboy Bill.
The comic is out November 4 and features words by Springsteen and illustrations by Frank Caruso. (It's not clear if "words by" means Springsteen provided the book's text or not.) In a release, the pair stated that the book is "based on the celebrated song about a bank-robbing baby whose exploits become a meditation on sin, fate, and free will."
Bruce Springsteen released High Hopes earlier this year.
Against Me! recently appeared on an episode of Amoeba's online feature, What's In My Bag?. In the episode, the band goes through their Amoeba shopping selections and tells a little bit about some of the records that they've chosen, including releases by X, Neko Case, The Doors, The Damned and many others.
