Simple Plan is a Canadian pop punk band consisting of Pierre Bouvier (born May 9, 1979) on vocal, Charles 'Chuck' Comeau (born September 17, 1979) on drums, David Desrosiers (born August 29, 1980) on bass and backing vocals, Sebastien Lefebvre (born June 5, 1981) on guitar and backing vocals, and Jean-Francois Stinco (born August 22, 1978) on lead guitar.
The band first formed as Reset in the late 90s by high-school friends Bouvier and Chuck at the age of thirteen. Reset released their first record called "No Worries" and toured with some bands like Blink 182, MxPx, Face to Face, and Ten Foot Pole. Chuck, whose first job was a writer in a music magazine, was the first to leave the band after being uncomfortable with the music they played. Two years later, Chuck reunited with Lefebvre and Stinco and decided to start making music again. They unexpectedly met Bouvier, who was a cook in a barbecue chicken restaurant, at Sugar Ray's concert in late 1999, who later rejoined the band. They then asked another Reset's personnel, Desrosiers, to join the new band, Simple Plan.
