#TBT 2007: Sum 41 Supportive of Guitarist Dave Baksh's Departure
It's never easy to lose a band member, but Sum 41 handled lead guitarist Dave Baksh's 2006 departure with grace and positivity.
In a 2007 interview with Fuse, the Canadian musicians explained that Baksh's decision hadn't exactly surprised them.
"I think we all sort of saw this coming," Steve Jocz recalled. "When Dave actually called—he never calls—I knew he was gonna quit."
While Jocz wasn't "tap dancing" after hearing the news, he and the band were definitely happy for Baksh "because he was happy."
