Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine is living with prostate cancer.

Durante uma entrevista com Spin’s Daniel Kohn that went live on Monday, the bass guitarist, 54, disse, “I’ve been dealing with some pretty serious s—.”

Ele continuou, “Right before I was about to go on tour with Rage, I had my prostate removed, e I have prostate cancer.”

The rocker’s girlfriend and his two sons — Xavier, 20, and Quentin, 18 — have been by his side amid his health journey, pela saída.

I’ve been someone that’s taken a lot of pride in being in shape and taking care of myself,” Commerford told the magazine. “But it’s something where either you’re either lucky or not.

He confessed that he’s struggled to stay positive.

Prostate cancer is a very, muito, very tough one because it’s connected to your sexuality,” Commerford said in part. “It’s hard to disconnect from that and when you’re forced into that situation, it’s a brutal psychological journey. I’ve been trying to find support groups, and it’s hard to find people and hard to talk about it.

He went on to say that he didn’t plan on revealing his diagnosis, but changed his mind.

” … Ao longo da última 24 horas, I’ve been thinking about it more, and a weird thing happened,” ele explicou. “I was with my girlfriend and we were watching the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony on TV. Duran Duran was on and I was like, _ Ah, f—, I used to learn those songs when I was a kid. I saw them on stage and wondered, where’s Andy Taylor and why do they have this other guy in here?! Then it was like, ‘Andy Taylor is suffering from stage four prostate cancer and is unable to make it.My life is sort of like that.

Commerford, who found out he was sick when he tried to get life insurance but was refused coverage, said that he’s on the road to recovery.

Every day I get closer to that test is like, ‘F— homem, is this going to be the time when the number is going to go up and I’m going to the next thing, whatever that is?’ I already went through some pain and s—. And I’m continuing to go through like, some crazy s—.”
