Sublime died with Brad. I'm sure he is rolling over in his grave... in fact this will probably end up defiling his legacy. **** Rome.

I really tried to like it, I really wantedto like it but I really don't. Rome looks and sounds like a huge douche.

Zing!

You can't say they don't have similar voices. Are they actually touring or recording stuff or are these just a select few events of Sublime songs being played by a group of people featuring original members of the band. Like lots of big artists they might have a couple people accompanied by hired musicians. Is this looked at as different because it happens to be the singer whose the one not present.

rome sounds okay i guess for a cover singer, but there's already a sublime cover band that's pretty popular called badfish so this guy's just useless. what about long beach dub allstars? eric wilson should have just kept that going if he really wanted to do more with the sublime style.
and that bitch Kat completely f'd away saw red. she sounds like mtv. she should be shot for trying to infiltrate sublime.

Yeah, if they're bringing Rome in, they should do it under the Long Beach Dub All Stars...not sublime

I think they should have just carried on with LBDAS, anything under the Sublime name should just be deaded sorry. Kinda how I feel about Alice in Chains.

You don't think that Brad would agree with the Rome decission? Or you don't think that Brad would appreciate everybody being so critical?

I'm amzed that this guy is fronting Sublime. I admit he sounds similiar but its just mind boggling to watch

Brads family aren't impressed - check out this from myspace, official blog

"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.
As Brad's heirs, and with the support of his entire family, we only want to respect his wishes and therefore have not consented to Bud and Eric calling their new project 'Sublime.' We have always supported Bud and Eric's musical endeavors and their desire to continue to play Sublime's music. We wholeheartedly supported Bud, Eric and the many talented members of the Sublime posse that formed the Long Beach Dub All-Stars, soon after Brad's death, to honor him through their original recordings, live performances and Sublime music until they disbanded in 2001. But, out of respect for Brad's wishes, we have always refused to endorse any group performing as 'Sublime,' and now with great reluctance feel compelled to take the appropriate legal action to protect Brad's legacy.

Our hope is that Brad's ex-bandmates will respect his wishes and find a new name to perform under, so as to enhance the 'Sublime' legacy without the confusion and disappointment that many fans have expressed upon seeing the announcement.[13]


Gaugh and Wilson also commented on the the lawsuit, saying:

On behalf of the band Sublime, founding members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson are thrilled by the opportunity to reconnect with their fans around the world. While we all mourn the passing of our brother and bandmate Bradley Nowell some thirteen years ago, Sublime still has a strong message of hope and love to share a message that is especially important in these difficult times.
Brad's heirs apparently do not share this vision and do not want the band Sublime to continue and tried unsuccessfully to file a temporary restraining order to prevent the band from carrying on. Despite those objections, we are pleased that the United States District Court has allowed us to perform as Sublime for all of our fans.

We urge everyone to join us in our message of peace and love, and we look forward to sharing the music we created the music that defines us

If they're truly fans of Sublime I'm sure people will be able to recognize them as Bud and Eric without having them tag on the Sublime name. I gave them the benefit of the doubt at first but now I'm sure their just doing this for the recognition and money.
