Tim Commerford

Tim Commerford, alias Timmy C., Tim Bob, Simmering T, Y.tim.K, and tim.COM, was the bassist for Rage Against the Machine and is currently bassist for Audioslave. He was born in 1968, and is the youngest of five children.

His father was an aerospace engineer, and worked on the space shuttle. His mother was a mathematician, but died of brain cancer when Tim was 20 years old. Tim's father divorced and remarried, while his mother moved to Sacramento, California to live with his sister, until she died.

Zack de la Rocha and Tim were friends since elementary school, and it was Zack who got Tim playing bass.

Tim has numerous tattoos, including a design covering his back, arms, and chest.

Tim is a fan of jazz, and is an obsessive mountain biker, even going so far as to thank all of his bikes in the liner notes for The Battle of Los Angeles.
