Biography

Deryck Jason Whibley (born March 21, 1980) is a Canadian musician and producer, best known for his work as the guitarist and lead vocalist, songwriter and producer of the multi Juno Award-winning pop punk band Sum 41. As a producer he was one of the founders and directors of Bunk Rock Productions. Sum 41 has sold over 40 million albums and won multiple awards all over the world. Whibley was born in Scarborough, Ontario and brought up by a single teenage mother, Michelle. He moved to Ajax, Ontario at age 12 and started Sum 41 a few years later. He married fellow Canadian singer Avril Lavigne on July 15, 2006, in Montecito, California and publicly separated from her on September 17, 2009. His parents are of English descent.

Deryck was in several bands before he met Steve Jocz in high school, but was in a band called “Doors of Draven” with Dave Baksh. His first band was called “The Powerful Young Hustlerz”, a hip hop band that covered rap songs from The Beastie Boys, and N.W.A. Deryck and Steve became good friends and started a band called Kaspir. The band consisted of Whibley as lead singer, Jocz on drums, Mark Spicoluk on bass, Dave Baksh and Marc Costanzo on Guitar. They later kicked Spicoluk out due to him getting into too much trouble, and Costanzo left to form the pop band, Len. Deryck then became the other guitarist. They changed their name from Kaspir to Sum 41 for a supernova show. They got Cone McCaslin to play bass in 1999 after having many other bassists.
