The guys of Sum 41 are often referred to as “juvenile prancksters” and with reason, if you’ve been to their concerts or have seen their videos. This Canadian band’s members include Deryck “Bizzy D” Whibley (vocals, guitar), Steve “Stevo 32” Jocz (drums), Dave “Brownsound” Baksh (guitar) and Jay “Cone” McCaslin (bass). These guys used to be members of rival bands back in their hometown of Ajax, Ontario but one fine day in 1997, they got together and formed Sum 41.
Pretty much right out of the gates they achieved success. With the 2001 release of their debut album All Killer, No Filler, the band announced their intention to bring pop punk to the masses. “Fat Lip” was a huge single for them reaching number one on the Rock charts and remains their top selling song. “We Are All to Blame”, “Pieces” and “Still Waiting” all from subsequent albums did well as well.
The band has always been big tourers sometimes playing 300 shows over the course of a year. They take world tours seriously and regularly go out on the road for a year at a time.
