Sublime Wasn’t Supposed to Reform

The last time all members of Sublime performed with Bradley Nowell was on May 24, 1996.  The next day, Bradely died of a heroin overdose.  Well the rest of the Sublime members and new vocalist Rome Ramierez played at Cypress Hill’s 2009 Smokeout Festival on October 24th against Bradley Nowells family’s wishes.  Nowells family released a statement on this and here is a portion of it:

“It was recently announced that Sublime bassist Eric Wilson and Sublime drummer Floyd ‘Bud’ Gaugh are ‘reuniting’ and teaming with singer and guitarist Rome Ramirez in a band they intend to call ‘Sublime.’ Prior to his untimely passing, both Bud and Eric acknowledged that Brad Nowell was the sole owner of the name Sublime. It was Brad’s expressed intention that no one use the name Sublime in any group that did not include him, and Brad even registered the trademark ‘Sublime’ under his own name…..”

Well a District Court Judge allowed the show to go on.
