Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim ‘Timmy C’ Commerford says he’s battling prostate cancer.

The 54-year-old told Spin: “Now I’m in the situation that I’m in, which is, hold your breath for six months. It’s not a good one and not one that I’m happy about. I’m just trying to grab ahold of the reins.

Commerford says he wishes he had sought treatment earlier: “I should have taken it more seriously“.

Commerford’s new band, 7D7D, recently released their debut single “Capitalism”.

When was your last cancer screening?  How can we make sure people undergo this kind of health-related maintenance?
