On The Road With Sublime With Rome

In 2009, former band members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson started performing under the Sublime name again, with singer Rome Ramirez as their lead vocalist. After some adjustments and name changes throughout the years, Sublime With Rome is now touring with original bandmate Wilson still on bass, Carlos Verdugo on drums, and Ramirez leading with vocals. Verdugo is the newest addition to the band, offering a different writing style, which helped them record their latest album, though much of their sound is influenced by Sublime itself. Ramirez and the band is also influenced by cannabis, because smoking helps take the edge off, to where they can just focus on what they're trying to say or play. Sublime With Rome has been touring long enough nowthat they have a wide net of people everywhere, so they can smoke and hang wherever they play, because cannabis will always be part of the Sublime With Rome culture.

Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
