    I think Eric Wilson has been extremly overlooked in terms of talent. Anyone else agree? Some of the best bass line I've heard and there's no question he took a central role in sublime.

    I agree with you 1000 % He is the reason why I picked up the bass and he is my biggest influence. If you like him check out SHORTBUS, Corn Doggy Dog and the 1/2 lb. Del noah, The juice Bros. and Long Beach Dub Allstars. He also has other side projects in which he plays guitar. He is #1 in my book!

    I'm happy for him/his health that he's losing weight. Big influence of mine also.

    Yeah I love Sublime and he's pretty much the reason I picked up bass. For the most part his bass lines are pretty easy, and sound awesome. ( Santeria ring a bell? )

    But I love him because he's fat.. I mean fat men are jolly right?


    :D

    Wow he's lost a lot of weight since I last saw him. I'll always remember him as the chubby guy from Sublime though. :D He's definetely one of my favorite bassists, and one of my biggest reasons to start bass.

    Bad Fish is one of my fav Sublime Basslines. Great Bassist, he really nailed that Reggae feel.
