Former Suicidal Tendencies Bassist Bob Heathcote Passes Away

Former Suicidal Tendencies bassist Bob Heathcote has sadly passed away at the age of 58. The musician’s death was related to injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident

Heathcote’s son Chris issued the following statement:

“My father Bob Heathcote has left this earth after 58 years and nearly two months, due to a motorcycle accident. I cannot put words together other than the fact that this is a loss I will hardly recover (if ever), and the fact that he was a hard working father who raised five children, including me. His interests included music, traveling, race cars and attending race tracks. He was also a supporter of the Dodgers.

In addition to his work in the technology and photography industries, dad gained a bit of publicity in the late 80’s as the bass player of the legendary punk/metal act Suicidal Tendencies. His tenure with S.T. lasted for just one album, the Epic Records release “How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can’t Even Smile Today”, which spawned the hits “Trip at the Brain” and the title track “How Will I Laugh Tomorrow”. Those two songs garnered airplay from Headbangers Ball on MTV and active rock radio stations, including the defunct legendary Long Beach-based radio station 105.5 KNAC. After that album, he left S.T. and the band would replace him with future Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo.

Each and every moment I’ve shared with my dad will forever remain as a treat. Thank you dad for everything you did for me and my family. I will miss not only your keen sense of humor, but you and me doing a lot of things we loved doing together, including talking about or listening to music, traveling, going to the beach, going to Mexican restaurants, attending Dodger games, etc.

R.I.P. Robert Monroe Heathcote
May 27th, 1964 – July 24th, 2022″

Suicidal Tendencies’ Instagram Account Was Down For Three Weeks After Being Removed Due To Their Name

Suicidal Tendencies have revealed that their Instagram account was down for three weeks. The profile was apparently removed after being flagged due to their name.

The band commented:

“So as a lot of you already noticed, our Instagram account was down for the last 3 weeks. Long story, this had nothing to do with “us”, but everything to do with our name 🙂

This isn’t the first time we’ve been flagged but hopefully it will be the last. We’ll go into that more later, but right now we want to focus on the positive and give our beST to you all and say thanks for always STanding with us!

What you missed, we’ve done a few festivals, more on that later too.

What’s coming up… @aftershockfestival in Sacramento. ST playing this Friday at 6:10PM closing the Coors Light STage.

During their September 11 set at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Danville, VA, Suicidal Tendencies performed with guest bassist Tye Trujillo, the son of Metallica and ex-Suicidal Tendencies bassist Robert Trujillo.

Suicidal Tendencies Cancel Spring/Summer Dates

Suicidal Tendencies have cancelled their spring and summer dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. The group also confirmed that Infectious Grooves’ June show has been cancelled as well.

The band commented:

“Unfortunately due to the Corona virus, concerts and gatherings pretty much all around the World are being cancelled.

Obviously peoples health and safety come first at this time and it’s out of our hands.

Hellfest in France that both ST and IG were supposed to play this year has been cancelled and they are hoping to move to June 2021.

All the upcoming ST shows and festivals in May, June, July and August have been cancelled or postponed to next year.

We hopefully will have info on the postponed shows.

Also, the Infectious Grooves show at the Warfield Theatre on June 13th has been cancelled.

If you purchased your tickets via AXS online or phone, a refund will automatically be issued to the credit card you used to purchase within 30 business days. Otherwise, refunds are available at your original point of purchase.

Because no one really knows at this time when they things will go back “to normal”, most festivals and events can’t be moved and are setting up for next year or cancelling.

Again, we’ll have more info as we get it, but it will probably be awhile before anyone really knows what’s going on.

ln the meantime, STay Safe and Sane!”

Suicidal Tendencies Working On “Old-School Vinyl Release” Featuring Instrumental Songs

Suicidal Tendencies’ Mike Muir has shared a lengthy post about the coronavirus pandemic. As part of his message, he also revealed some of the band’s current plans, which include an instrumental “old school vinyl release with songs from ST members and people related to ST.”

Muir said the following:

“Hello All!

Don’t need to tell anyone these are some crazy times. We all are going thru our own things in our own way.

As lots of us are basically on lockdown, hopefully we can all get thru this with some sanity and compassion besides just toilet paper.

Long story short, my dad will be 91 next month. He had two operations at the end of last year and then fell and broke his neck at the beginning of the year. He just got out of the hospital and rehabilitation center and is back home now, but know what this virus can do to him and my mom.

Our tour manager’s family is in lockdown in Italy and he doesn’t know when he will be able to see them.

I went on and on about the people that we work with all around the world and how they are in basic lockdown, but decided to stop and leave it at this… you may not know the people, but we all have lots in common…

Friends who have businesses they don’t know what’s gonna happen. People out of work that don’t know how long. On and on. Lots of people going thru the same thing and others with unique situations that are made extremely difficult… And of course the unknown is the toughest for lots of us.

As for the band, as you know lots of tours and festivals have and will be postponed or cancelled. Promoters are scrambling and we will let you know more as we find out.

Hopefully we’ll all get thru this and we’ll all learn something. I don’t want to make this about right or wrong or what who should do what or not do. Just say, be safe and do what you can for your loved ones and when you can for those that don’t have any to help them.

Lastly, since we are basically on lockdown here, we discussed doing some things we probably wouldn’t have or didn’t have time to…

Ra and I got in the studio and did a new version of “Scream out” from the album “Freedumb” in Spanish. Being from Chile, Ra took extra pride in this and being that my Spanish is “no bueno” I did my best and hopefully it will come across in a good way. I sure know it was good to “gritarlo”, scream my lungs out again in any language.

Also, they say it’s good to know when to be quiet… And in the past we have done a few instrumental tracks. Now we are finishing those up and gonna do an old school vinyl release with songs from ST members and people related to ST.

Ra is doing a bass instrumental of “Gonna be Alright”. Dean Pleasants is doing a guitar instrumental of “This World”. Ben Weinman is doing a guitar instrumental of “Happy Never After”. Also on Bass we have instrumental tracks from Josh Paul, Bubby Lewis and Saya Grey. Tim Stewart and Ricky Tillo from “thebandknives”. Plus two cover songs: 22 below with, “Monopoly on Sorrow” and Nisha STar doing “Asleep at the wheel”.

Ra will be doing some “interviews” with all involved and get some behind the scenes input. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this project and we will have more info soon.

Lastly, the artist of the month for March will Mark Geltch from Australia. Mark did the “World Gone Mad” cover and back cover of “13”, etc. Mark choose to do a design for “Heaven” off the album “Freedumb”. We will post a video he made about it this week, which includes an acoustic version of the song “Heaven” sung by Nisha STar and acoustic guitar by Tim Stewart.

Thanx to all for the continued support.
STay Safe, STay Sane, STay Cyco!”

Wow… It's been 30 years since Robert Trujillo @robtrujillo joined ST and did his firST shows with the band in Europe on tour with Anthrax. . That firST show Robert came out like a beaST, going wild on ST all while slapping and bashing his bass with precision and a purpose. After the show, they were all "where did you find this guy?". . An amazing bass player, incredible person, and of course also co-founder of Infectious Grooves, that was the STart of a lot of great shows, moments, memories and helping take ST to another level! . Flash forward to laST Saturday night in San Pedro at the SoCal Hoedown. HiSTory repeats itself as a young Tye Trujillo @tyetru STeps on STage and bashed around it like a true Cyco! 🙂 . Huge thanks to Tye for filling in for Ra @ra_diaz for this one show. For showing what a bad ass he already is on bass, and at juST 15 years old, has already accomplished a lot, but huge things are STill coming his way. His youthful enthusiasm was contagious, his bass skills undeniable. . JuST like Robert and Chloe Trujillo @chloetrujillo , we were all super proud of him and an absolute blaST to be able to share a STage with him. . On a side note, we warned him, over and over "watch out for Ben, watch out for Ben!". So firST song, "You can't bring me down", and guess what… It's Cyco that knocks him over! . Well as we always say, you get knocked down in life, you get back up… And not only did Tye get back up… But with a smile and didn't miss a beat or a STep! There's a lesson there… Be like Tye! . Again huge thanks to the Trujillo family and all people that came out to the feSTival to support us. . STAY CYCO! ST . #SuicidalTendencies #TyeTrujillo #RobertTrujillo #InfectiousGrooves #Metallica #SuicidalAndProud #WeAreFamily #SUICIDAL #STAYCYCO
