O músico Bradley Nowell nasceu há cinquenta anos

Bradley James Nowell (Long Beach, California, February 22, 1968 – San Francisco, California, May 25, 1996) was an American musician who served as the founder, lead singer, and guitarist of the band Sublime. Raised in Long Beach, California, Nowell developed an interest in music at a young age. His father took him on a trip to the Virgin Islands during childhood, which exposed him to reggae and dancehall music; he then gained a strong interest in rock music once he learned how to play guitar. Nowell played in various bands until forming the group Sublime with bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh, whom he had met while attending California State University, Long Beach. Although Sublime gained success in the 1990s, Nowell struggled with a worsening addiction to heroin. He eventually became sober after his son, Jakob, was born. Nowell relapsed, and on the morning of May 25, 1996, he died of a heroin overdose in a San Francisco hotel while Sublime was on tour.
