Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley announces memoir

Author Arto Mäenpää - 22.3.2024

Sum 41‘s Deryck Whibley is set to share the “highest highs and lowest lows of the band” as well as his own in his upcoming memoir, “Walking Disaster: My Life Through Heaven And Hell.”

The 43-year-old musician has put pen to paper to tell his life story as the band prepare to release their final album, Heaven :x: Hell, and complete their farewell jaunt, “The Tour of the Setting Sum.” A synopsis for the tome reads:

“Deryck takes you backstage, into the recording booth, and through the highest highs and lowest lows of the band whose story is inextricably woven with his own.”

Deryck recently admitted he’s looking forward to the next chapter of his life. He told Us Weekly:

“I’m sure it might feel a little bit different as we get closer to the end of the tour. But I’m also really excited about that, too. Not that I just want to get over Sum 41, but I feel excited about the future, of trying new things, expanding and growing and being creative in other ways and seeing where life takes me.”
