In Memoriam: Tim “Rawbiz” Williams (Suicidal Tendencies)

Contributed by DesertBurst92. Posted by mark on Friday, August 29, 2014 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Image 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.

Bruce Springsteen plans to release graphic novel

Contributed by alex101. Posted by johng (g+) on Friday, August 29, 2014 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
Bruce Springsteen 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.
