Vocalist and Guitarist for the punk/ska band Rancid. He started his career in Operation Ivy helping creating a following that is still strong to this day. When that band broke up, Tim lived many years as a junkie. With help from Lars Frederiksen, Tim has virtually brought himself out of the gutter. He has helped forged Rancid with Lars, Matt Freeman, and Brett Reed and formed his own record label called Hellcat Records.
