He's recovering from his alcoholism...
Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley drew some serious attention after he revealed that his heavy drinking over the years has brought him to the edge of death. Whibley revealed earlier this month that doctors told him one more drink could kill him and that he has been in the hospital for a month recovering in an intensive care unit following his liver and kidneys collapsing. Whibley has posted an update to his personal website, thanking fans for their support and posting a picture of himself looking incredibly thin.
The update reads:
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.
