Sublime bassist suffers serious injuries following ATV accident


Eric Wilson suffered a broken arm and four broken ribs after being crushed by his ATV.

Sublime with Rome bassist and founding member of Sublime Eric Wilson was seriously injured in an ATV accident on Thursday, April 4. Wilson’s manager Cheez tells TMZ he sustained a broken arm and four broken ribs.

According to the report, Wilson was working on his avocado ranch in California when his ATV rolled over and crushed him.

Rescuers responded to the accident, rushing Wilson to a hospital near San Diego where he had to undergo surgery that lasted nearly five hours.

Wilson is currently still admitted to the hospital, but is expected to recover and be released this week.

Sublime with Rome released an updated on Wilson’s health via their Twitter page on Saturday.

“Eric says thanks for the well wishes! He’s doing much better. Fuckin’ avocados, man. They’ll get you every time! #donttrythisathomekids”

Sublime was formed in 1988 by Wilson, singer/guitarist Bradley Nowell and drummer Bud Gaugh.

The band broke up in 1997 after Nowell died from a heroin overdose.

Wilson and Gaugh went on to reform the band in 2009, adding guitarist Rome Ramirez to the lineup and changing the band name to Sublime with Rome the following year.
