Subliminal Messages: Please Shut Up say Brad Nowell’s Estate

Thirteen years after reggae, ska, harcore band Sublime’s Brad Nowell died of a drug overdose, the remaining band members have begun playing under the Sublime moniker. This has upset Nowell who stuck a restraining on the new Sublime. Apparently the order has been kicked out and bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh alnong with a new lead singer are free to play.

Sublime were a great band and seconds from a worldwide success that could’ve rivalled their sister revivialists No Doubt. But without the lead guitarist, lead singer and songwriter is Sublime Sublime? I say yes for the same reason I think there can be two dozen Kiss bands touring. Many people never got the chance to experience Sublime so let them experience the next big thin.

wise. Call  it creative assistance and give em 20%.

Me? I’d go and see a Sublime without Nowell. He was a great but he can be replicated for a song or two and anyway, this is reggae based music and the bass and drumms axis is very important. Let the rest of the band make some money in peace…
