Sublime With Rome drummer Bud Gaugh announced in an interview earlier tonight at their performance at the 22nd annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas that he will be leaving the band as he’s expecting a baby and is planning to focus his time on his family.
We wish Bud good luck and want to say congratulations to his new child. Yes, we’re sad to hear that he’s leaving, but this is not the end of Sublime With Rome. Bassist Eric Wilson said in the KROQ interview that Josh Freese (The Vandals, Devo, Guns N’ Roses, A Perfect Circle, touring member of Nine Inch Nails, and session musician of The Offspring, Social Distortion, Suicidal Tendencies, etc.) might take Bud’s place.
