Why: He is the son of Bradley Nowell (the guy from Sublime), born in June of 1995. (Brad died of a heroin overdose May 25, 1996(1996-05-25)). Last time I saw this kid, he looked like this:
Answer: He's in high school in San Diego! And wearing a mohawk! According to the Internet's resident expert on Sublime:
Jake is now 16 or 17 and he plays guitar but has no plans (as far as I know) to start a band & he's not in one as of yet. He and Troy (who has since remarried.) live in San Diego. They usually come up to Brad's headstone on his anniversary so you might be able to catch them there sometime.Here is a [tacky?] video of Jakob and his mom Troy visiting Brad's grave in 2009:
For the most part, they just keep a low profile,.... Jake's just going to school and Troy's just doing the "Mom" thing. At one point, she had a little store down there but I think she has since closed it down.
Jake sports a Mohawk, Troy's still got mad style, and they both just want respect for Bradley & for his legacy to be respected as it should be.
The More You Know: Sublime was on tour this year! with some guy named Rome Ramirez! calling themselves "Sublime with Rome"! Eh?
Here is how widow and child feel about that:
As far as the whole "sublime with Rome" thing goes,... at first, they were adamantly against it(as well as the Nowell family) because they all didn't want the name that Brad OWNED (and had copyrighted) to be disrespected, however, they all reached an amicable settlement which included the stipulation that they could not go on tour (or sell merchandise)under ONLY the name "sublime"; they had to (and HAVE to) use "Sublime with Rome".
