I'll just wait until you realize you didn't list a new name.

Never mind my new rule, it's kind of dumb, but no poor links like that.

Bradley Nowell was also compared to Kurt Conain on other occasions too. That was just one of the instances I could think of.

I think that verifiable face-to-face meetings ought to count too.
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

Well yeah they do OE, of course they do, but I mean a poor link like Barney Killer made "such and such was compared to such and such" it's too poor.

Not sure if this fits the rules, but you can also make the connection through Jim "Kimo" West.
Jim produced and performed on the album, The Hawaiian Tribute to Sublime: Livin's EZ. Jim, along with some other musicians, recorded Hawaiian-style versions of some Sublime's songs.
