I happen to know Mike aka Qball, and he did NOT know Brad. I knew both of these guys quite well. Mike is the biggest story teller you will ever meet. 99% BS

only the names he drops are real...then he spins crazy tales that he makes up on the fly. He has been on the punk scene in H.B. and Fullerton but more of a spectator His record label was actually New World Records and a total failure. I was his neighbor and know him VERY well. He is quite delusional and in an unstable mental state.

Expertise

I lived with Brad for two years and I was a close friend of his so I feel like I am pretty qualified to answer some questions about Sublime. I will do my best to answer questions about Bud, Eric, Miguel and of course Brad. I should also be qualified to answer a few questions about Brad's lyrics that are in Spanish. With many topics though, like merchandise, bootlegs, and many other things I am completely under qualified. Refer these questions and any others that require extensive research to Matt (ha, ha, ha.)

Experience

Most of my experience in the area obviously comes from living with and hanging out with Brad. I've read the Crazy Fool book twice and I've also watched Stories, Tales, Lies, and Exaggerations along with countless other interviews and videos. When it really comes down to it though, I have not become a Sublime scholar like Matt has. If you want a personal insight on some questions then I am your man for the job.

Publications
Some of my writings about Sublime have appeared on the Sublime Forum and on the Sublime Wiki.

Education/Credentials
I am not sure if it matters but I am a college graduate. Adequate writing skills combined with my personal experience enable me to answer many questions. If I don't feel like I can answer a question well, I will tell you so or refer you to Matt.

Past/Present Clients
I do not financially benefit from anything Sublime. I do not sell or deal with Sublime merchandise, bootlegs or other recordings. My interest in being a Sublime "expert" is mostly altruistic. I've seen a lot of lies, half-truths and exaggerations out there about Brad and Sublime so I would like to debunk some of these myths or falsifications if possible.
