Sublime With Rome bassist and Sublime founding member Eric Wilson was rushed to the hospital on Thursday after a freak ATV accident left him seriously injured.
According to TMZ, Wilson was working on his avocado ranch in California when his ATV rolled over and crushed him. Paramedics were called to the scene and took him to a hospital near San Diego, where he was diagnosed with a broken arm and four broken ribs. Wilson underwent surgery that lasted nearly five hours. He’s expected to recover nicely, and be released from the hospital this week.
But that doesn’t help Sublime much right now – their tour kicks off tonight in Augusta , GA and I would expect they’ll have a sub of some kind. It’s pretty tough to play bass with a broken arm. Hell, I have two reasonably functional arms and I’m no good at it!
Sublime With Rome will drop their new album BLESSINGS on May 27.
