Question
Wazzup I've jus found this site and have read through a few pages of questions. I have to say this is awesome and thanks for being da informa on Sublime.

I wanna know what it was like to hangout with the band and more importantly to party with the band. If you have memorable stories about all three members. What kinda phrases did you guys use and say like "15 will get you 20""89 Vision"
What kinda jokes did they tell or thing sdid they talk about. Basically what was it like to kick it with sublime

Answer
Hey Cobain,

I never hung out with the band. Sorry if any past answer made you believe otherwise, but I am just a fan like you.

Jack Maness did tell me that the lyric "Lord have his grilled cheese" was an inside joke of a variation of "Lord have mercy".

Sorry I can't be more help.

Expertise

Guarantee: you will receive an answer within 2 days of posting the question -- whether it is a referral to a different expert or a straight answer to your question. I can answer most questions about the band, the significance of the lyrics, the show dates, the unreleased albums and tracks, misinformation, and, above all, I am an expert on their influences and related music. Additionally, if you're looking for that hard to find track or a cheap alternative to the $300 book Crazy Fool: Portrait of a Punk, I might be able to help.

Experience

I have been a huge fan for 16 years, I ran a server which distributed Sublime's live and unreleased music 24/7 for 4 years, I have answered questions about the band daily for a decade on their old website, and I know some of the largest collectors in the world. I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview.

Education/Credentials
I did not study music in college, but I majored in English, so I can write a clear response. I worked as a research assistant in the past, so I have skills in research if I need to figure out an answer.

Past/Present Clients
Sublime fans aren't my clients, but I have distributed swag and rare tracks to all those who want them for years at little cost.
