Sublime Bassist Rushed To Hospital After Getting Crushed By ATV

April 9, 2019
The band's manager Cheez told TMZ that 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. Though he's still in the hospital, he's expected to recover and be released this week.
Over the weekend, the band took to Twitter to update fans on Wilson's status. “Eric says thanks for the well wishes! He’s doing much better. F***in’ avocados, man. They’ll get you every time!
#donttrythisathomekids” they wrote before posting a photo of the bassist in the hospital.

Sublime With Rome have a slew of tour dates coming up. We expect them to find a replacement for Wilson, as we imagine playing bass with a broken arm is essentially impossible, but they haven't announced their plans yet. Check out a list of tour dates below, and look out for their new album BLESSINGS on May 27.
