Deryck's Interview with Kerrang!

Postby Heather on Thu Jan 26, 2012 1:30 am

Sorry for the small scan, only one available right now courtesy of Sum41Bandaids. I wrote out the good stuff.

Image

"We were so looking forward to these shows. They were really important to us and I feel terrible about letting the fans down. My back injury has got to the point where I just couldn't even walk anymore and had to be in a wheelchair."

"The problem is that it's a slipped disc, so the disk is basically dead and two of the vertebra are sort of rubbing against each other and not functioning right. I'm not a back specialist and I don't remember every little detail they tell me. I just know its restricting me doing just about anything beyond walking. I thought by this point it should be fine but, having the X-rays and all that stuff, the doctors are saying that I could be in a wheelchair. So as much as I wanted to be able to do it, I've got to look at reality and for the first time I've got to listen to somebody else and not just myself. I can't really do anything else other than walk"

The frontman admits that he began to worry about whether he would be physically fit enough to perform in the New Year."I thought that if I wasn't able to do certain things by that point then I wasn't going to be able to prepare. That was my cut off where i said I couldn't start exercising and getting ready for the tour I've got to have a lot of physiotherapy in the next few months."

Deryck dismisses the idea that he could have preformed the hour on a stool. "No, never. I would never do a show without making it 100 per cent. I can't even have a guitar on my back! I know people have done that and its been something a lot of people have said to me, but I would never do that. Our shows are all about energy and I'm the frontman so I've gotta be the entertainer - I've got to do stuff. I mean, I don't think anyone would want to see [Metallica frontman] James Hetfield sitting on a stool at a show (laughs) I don't want to see that and I would never do it. We're all really upset about this and we didn't want to let anyone down"

Anything from them before 2015 would be incredibly epic.

Finally, a scan! Thanks for posting. Deryck's answer about the idea of him performing was exactly what I knew it would of been. It's a good idea, just not the right one for Deryck. It sounds as if after playing shows immediately after being told not to, Deryck's finally realized that he needs to put himself first to fully recover. I hope things start to look up for him soon for not just the bands sake, but his own aswell.

Sounds like a proposition ^^

Yeah, just repeating what we know already really. But good to hear it from the horses mouth, glad to hear he's opposed to the idea of doing a show on a stool lol

HELL YES! I love that idea. I want Deryck to know how much we really care and want him better. Just wish we could include some type of message instead of just our Usernames. It could even be a sentence or two max. I dunno if that would work or not though. Too bad we couldn't put together something that had messages, drawings, ect.

I've done a fan scrapbook with messages and pictures, took me like a month to get all the entries and complete it though. The only way I could do messages is with a video.

Yeah, that'd be something we'd have to give to him in person. But still, I'm up for what was done for Matt's card.

how about we all make a video telling deryck to get better and maybe a message along with it, send it to me ill put it all together and put it on youtube and he would be able to see that without giving it to him in person, and for those who cant make a video but can do the card thing you could do that and when the cards finished take a pic and send it to me and i would put it at the end of the video. does that sound good?

I say no. A video for me is too hard to do with my pc and internet and video camera. You could just use a picture of us..?
