He claimed the raid occurred after a member of Linkin Park's entourage complained to event security about being allergic to cannabis smoke, and he subsequently branded the group "Linkin Nark".

Sublime bassist Eric Wilson was admitted to hospital last weekend (07-08Jul12) after dislocating his shoulder backstage at a music festival.
The rock group, now known as Sublime With Rome, played at Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin but the gig ended in a trip to the hospital for Wilson after a bizarre accident involving his dog.
Wilson was playing with his rottweiler, standing on a skateboard and being pulled along, when his hand became tangled in the leash and he was dragged to the ground by the animal.
Paramedics attended the scene and his dislocated shoulder was later put back into place by doctors at a local hospital.

Reunited punk stars Sublime have cleared up reports surrounding Bud Gaugh's departure from the band, assuring fans the drummer will return to the line-up after a hiatus.
Gaugh sparked speculation he was quitting the reformed group, now known as Sublime With Rome, after telling the crowd at a Los Angeles concert on Saturday (10Dec11) the gig would be his last.
However, Gaugh isn't ditching his drum kit for good - the rocker will rejoin Sublime With Rome after taking time off to welcome another baby into his family.
A statement from the band reads, "There have been some misunderstandings and miscommunication on what exactly is going down with us so we wanted to set the record straight... Our brother Bud is about to have a baby and, understandingly, taking some time off to be with his family. We couldn't be happier for him and welcome him back out on the road with us as soon as he needs a break from the diapers and baby bottles."

Reunited punk icons Sublime have suffered a blow as they continue their comeback - drummer Bud Gaugh has quit as he prepares to become a father again.
The percussionist reformed the group, now known as Sublime With Rome, with fellow founding member Eric Wilson in 2009 and they released their first album of new material in 15 years, titled Yours Truly, in July (11).
The duo and singer Rome Ramirez have spent the past year touring to promote the new music, but moments before taking the stage in Los Angeles for The Kroq Almost Acoustic Christmas concert on Saturday (10Dec11), Gaugh announced the gig would be his last.
The drummer says, "The story is that I'm gonna be a dad here again real soon, and I just wanna be there for my family."

Reunited punk icons Sublime are set to hit the studio again to record their first album of new material in 13 years.
Drummer Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson reformed the group last year (09) and have since settled a name dispute with late singer Bradley Nowell's family.
Now known as Sublime With Rome, the group has started work on a new album at the Radiostar studio in Weed, California.
The group has also earmarked a three-date European tour, which will begin in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 5 October (10). The band will then return to the U.S. for an extensive autumn (10) tour.

The Memorial Day weekend is coming up -- a time for remembering the dead, and, in the case of Sex And The City 2 , even a dead television series. The movie is opening tonight (Wednesday) in some markets -- in an apparent effort to grab women who have been granted an extra-long holiday. Critics would just as soon let the whole matter be forgotten. The new movie is, writes Claudia Puig in USA Today , "an insult to the memory of the cleverly written show and its celebration of friendship." Or, as Kyle Smith puts it in the New York Post "The transformation of the girls from winsome wisecrackers into whiny bling-obsessed chuckleheads is complete." Those characters, writes Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times, "make my skin crawl ... flyweight bubbleheads living in a world which rarely requires three sentences in a row." Sex and the City 2 , he says, amounts to yet another depiction of "the trivialities of their lives." Amy Diluna, described by the New York Daily News as a "guest reviewer" (she's the newspaper's fashion editor), concludes that "the clothes and scenery are sublimely sparkly and the zippy zingers fly. ... [but] this movie is like once-brilliant Champagne, carelessly left out overnight. And gone flat." Peter Howell in the Toronto Star uses a similar metaphor "The fizz is definitely off the champagne of the continuing saga," he writes, adding, "Film franchises usually don't flatline this quickly. This Sex feels more like a tired fourth go than a triumphant second." Rick Groen in the Toronto Globe and Mail awards it just one-half of a star, and his entire review amounts to an explanation of why he has given it even that, concluding, "But the best, most irrefutable reason why Sex and the City 2 deserves one-half a shining star It's worse than Sex and the City 1 , and that alone is a remarkable achievement." Indeed, most of these same critics had ripped the first movie -- but not like they have shredded the latest one. As Betsy Sharkey writes in the Los Angeles Times "When the girls first went big screen in 2008, the film could be forgiven for being such a dreary dud because it was so good to have the gold-plated four pack back. But there's no free lunch for 2."

Reformed punk icons Sublime have reached a deal with the family of late singer BRAD NOWELL so they can tour this spring (10).
Founding members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh regrouped as Sublime with new frontman and Nowell sound-alike Rome Ramirez for shows last year (09), but their big comeback at Cypress Hill's Smokeout Festival in California in October (10) was tainted when Nowell's widow threatened to sue the duo if they performed as Sublime.
The gig went ahead and the two parties have since settled on a new name, Sublime With Rome.
The new-look trio will perform six dates this spring (10) and if the short tour goes well, a full summer trek is planned.

Reunited punk icons Sublime are facing a lawsuit from the family members of their late singer if they go ahead with plans to perform at this weekend's (24Oct09) Smokeout Festival in California.
The surviving members of the band announced plans to stage a comeback at the event last month (Sep09), acknowledging it would be their first show together since the death of frontman Bradley Nowell in 1996.
But, on the eve of the show, Nowell's family threatened bandmates Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson, along with the singer's replacement Rome Ramirez, with a lawsuit if the band hits the stage as Sublime.
A statement from the family reads, "Prior to his untimely passing, both Bud and Eric acknowledged that Brad Nowell was the sole owner of the name Sublime. It was Brad's expressed intention that no one use the name Sublime in any group that did not include him, and Brad even registered the trademark Sublime under his own name.
