Singer Deryck Whibley has thanked his fans for their "compassion and support" as he takes time to recover after being rushed to hospital.
The Sum 41 frontman was taken to hospital after he collapsed due to liver and kidney failure. Following the health scare Deryck admitted that he had been drinking a lot recently and the doctors had informed him that his drinking had been the cause of his organ failure.
"I was drinking hard every day" he revealed on his website, "If I have one drink the doc's say I will die" he added.
However Deryck is remaining positive and using the experience to re-ignite his "passion…for writing music", promising fans, "I will be better soon and back out on stage before you know it."
