Sum 41 Wants To Find Former Member Who Quit The Band And Was Never Seen Again

Sum 41 singer/guitarist Deryck Whibley has expressed his desire to reunite with the band’s former frontman, Jon Marshall. Marshall was the original vocalist for the Canadian pop-punk band in their early days, but he left the group after only a year in 1997. Whibley told the Daily Star that “Johnny Libertine,” from Sum 41’s latest release, Heaven :x: Hell, was written about Marshall. “[The song] is a reference to Jon. He was the most punk-rock guy I have ever known,” Whibley said. “We were 16 when we knew him and he was in this delirium, no plan B, we destroyed everything. He was my best friend, then he left the group never to be seen again.” Whibley revealed that he has had no contact with Marshall after he left the band, saying he’s heard “nothing at all” from the former frontman ever since. “I would like a ‘goodbye,’” Whibley shared, claiming that the last Sum 41 album is his band’s way of saying goodbye to their fans.
