    Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley revealed he nearly died from his hard-partying and heavy drinking lifestyle, sharing that his liver and kidneys were failing. He was under a doc's care for a month.

    Now, a former guitar tech for the band has detailed what life was like on the road with the singer, who partied to excess.

    Brian Keith Diaz posted a VERY long blog about life as a tech for Sum 41, detailing how bad things got with the drinking and the drugs. It's certainly an enthralling read. Visit briankeithdiaz.com to peep it.
