The surviving members of Sublime will be reuniting with the son of late frontman Bradley Nowell at this year’s Coachella festival.
Bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh will be joined by 28-year-old Jakob Nowell on guitar and lead vocals.
The trio performed together for the first time at a charity concert last month, and shortly afterward it was announced that the longtime tribute band Sublime with Rome was breaking up.
The 28-year-old Jakob was less than a year old when Bradley Nowell died on May 25th, 1996. He wrote, “It’s an honour to carry on with our family’s name and legacy with Sublime.”
What would Sublime’s career have looked like if Nowell hadn’t died so early?
