Floyd "Bud" I. Gaugh IV (born October 2, 1967) is a rock music drummer who played in the bands Sublime (1988-1996), Long Beach Dub Allstars (1997-2002), Eyes Adrift (2002-2003) Volcano (2004), Del Mar (2006-present) and Sublime with Rome (2009-present). He was the oldest member of Sublime.
He met bassist Eric Wilson in 1979 and later started their first garage punk band, which was named The Juice Bros. They became founding members of Sublime in 1986. In 1996, Sublime ended due to the death of lead singer Bradley Nowell from a heroin overdose. The Long Beach Dub Allstars then formed in 1997. Their first album was released in 1999 called Right Back (Dreamworks).
Gaugh played drums in the Eyes Adrift with Krist Novoselic and Curt Kirkwood. After Eyes Adrift disbanded, he went on to form Volcano with Kirkwood. Since Eyes Adrift, Gaugh now spends his time at his home in Nevada, snowboarding, skating, skiing and kayaking in Colorado and Lake Tahoe and plays in a band called Del Mar. Del Mar was started in 2006, and plays classic surf.
It was announced in early 2009 that Gaugh would be reuniting with Sublime at Cantina Los Tres Hombres in Sparks, Nevada on February 28 with new frontman and guitarist Rome Ramirez, who is filling in for the late Bradley Nowell. Following positive response, the band decided to reunite properly in August 2009 for a possible tour and new album. However, not long after the October 2009 performance at Cypress Hill's Smokeout Festival, a Los Angeles judge banned the new lineup from using the Sublime name and was forced to change its name. The new lineup of Eric Wilson, Bud Gaugh and Rome Ramirez now performs together as Sublime with Rome.
