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 in the area

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.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The song Get Out! off of 40oz is a hodge podge of 10 or more songs and samples, including but not limited to: It's Expected I'm Gone (Minutemen) Slow Ride (Beastie Boys) Clean Up Woman (Betty Wright) If It Ain't Ruff (N.W.A) Clips from the film Scarface Fuck 'Em (The Geto Boys) Moby Dick (Led Zeppelin) Lemon Song (Led Zeppelin) Four Legged Zoo (School House Rock)

Zak,    There is not an exhaustive list of songs NOT played live. Likewise, if I told you a song was never played live, I'd likely be wrong; my guess is all have been played outside the studio at some
