Dave Baksh, the guitarist of music act Sum 41, has at last decided to leave the Canadian pop-punk group in order to concentrate on his own band, Brown Brigade.
And due to such fact, Sum 41 who is in the middle of recording a new studio album, will keep on going with the recording process and will not seek a permanent replacement for Baksh.
Speaking on Baksh's leaving, lead singer Deryck Whibley posted message on the band's Web site (http://www.sum41.com) saying "He was sick of this whole life and would have more fun playing in his own classic metal band. So we respect that. There's no hard feelings whatsoever."
