Tate Gunning was a star athlete in high school and accepted a baseball scholarship to Arizona State University. It was not long before Tate had a taste of the party life in college, which led to a 15 year battle with addiction. Finally, while living homeless, he overdosed on heroin and nearly died—this was also the experience that changed his life.
Todd ‘Zman’ Zalkins grew up during the Long Beach punk rock scene, where surfing and back yard parties were nothing but the norm. When Sublime first started playing shows, Todd was right there in the middle of it all, and as Sublimes success grew, Todd stayed close with the band, especially lead singer Bradley Knowell.
