Earlier this month, Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley revealed in an update on his website that he had been hospitalized after his liver and kidney started to fail as a result of irresponsible drinking. More recently, Whibley posted the above image on the band’s Facebook page with the following caption:
“Hey everyone, I just wanted to thank you all so much for sending gifts and all of the compassion and support you have shown me. It really means a lot to me in this time of recovery. I will be better soon and back out on stage before you know it.
See you all soon, Deryck Whibley”
According to a recent post on former Sum 41 guitar tech Brian Keith Diaz’s blog, Deryck had been trying to cut back on his drinking when he last saw him a year ago. We sincerely hope he follows through this time around and has a quick recovery.
