Sublime With Rome Bassist Eric Wilson Seriously Injured in ATV Accident
Eric Wilson, a founding member of Sublime and the current bassist for Sublime with Rome, was seriously injured in an ATV accident in California last week, TMZ reported. The musician, who formed Sublime with drummer Bud Gaugh and late singer-songwriter Bradley Nowell in Long Beach in 1988, is expected to make a complete recovery.
Wilson's all-terrain vehicle rolled over and crushed him while we was working on his avocado ranch, the musician's manager told the tabloid. Breaking an arm and four ribs, he was rushed to a hospital in nearby San Diego, where the bass player underwent surgery that spanned nearly five hours. Still admitted at press time, Wilson should be released from the hospital early this week.
With Sublime, the musician scored hits such as "What I Got" and "Santeria" in the '90s, the tunes taken from the band's self-titled final album. The songs were released shortly after frontman Nowell died of a drug overdose that same year.
In 2009, Wilson and Gaugh reactivated Sublime with new singer Rome Ramirez, later amending the group's name to Sublime with Rome after reported legal trouble with Nowell's estate. Gaugh has since left the band.
