In a new interview with Kerrang, Deryck Whibley (Sum 41) talks about how Iggy Pop and Tommy Lee have been helping him with advice in regard to his sobriety.
"Now I'm sober, I don't get calls from certain people that I used toÖ the drinking friends," Whibley said. "Now I'm the bum-out to them. Who wants to invite the sober guy to the party? Y'know who has been incredibly supportive? Iggy Pop. He had a lot of great advice; he's been through it all. We've been friends for years."

Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 recently sat down for an interview with Geoff Nixon at CBCNews:
"When everything that happened to me after years and years of drinking so much, I never realized that I was taking it that far, I never realized that I would end up in the hospital like that," he said. "I just wanted our fans to know that it can happen to you, too, if youíre not careful."

Today Sum 41's Deryck Whibley dropped the "Lavigne" from his name - which he secretly got added on after marrying pop star Avril Lavigne in 2006. A judge granted the name change recently, as reported here.
The rockerís request to drop Avrilís name was stamped on Thursday. As we first revealed, Whibley had secretly taken her name during their 2006 marriage Ö to become Deryck Jason Lavigne Whibley. Deryckís name change was filed a few months after Lavigne married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroger Ö which is probably not a coincidence. The fact Deryck has a new fiancťe probably influenced the change too.

Brian Diaz, formerly of The Reunion Show and a long time tour manager, wrote up a great blog about Deryck Whibley of Sum 41.
The party animal in me loved it but it had already started to take a toll on my body after several months. I couldnít believe how far Deryck could go, though. I couldnít get myself to walk from the bus to the venue some days, and here this guy was playing shows every single night for an hour or more, sweating, running around like a maniac, and killing a bottle of whiskey. It was insanity.
