In an interview with Spin, Tim Commerford, the bassist and co-founding member of Rage Against the Machine has been battling Prostate Cancer. The 54-year-old bassist has already had a surgery to remove his prostate just before RATM went on tour earlier in 2023, and has been dealing with the situation the last few years. Tim just released music from his new band 7D7D. Tim has remained optimistic and currently has zero PSA’s (prostate-specific antigen) in his system, which for the moment means cancer free. He will be tested every six months now. Best of luck, Tim.
He discusses his cancer journey so far in the chat.
