Rage Against The Machine’s Timmy C Says He Has Prostate Cancer

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”.
