Sum 41 Lose Dave

(MTV) Sum 41 lead guitarist Dave 'Brownsound' Baksh has decided to leave the band. In a press release, Dave revealed, "I couldn't continue on creatively in Sum 41 without being a thorn in the side of the band. As people grow, they change." Brownsound added, however, that there is absolutely no animosity between him and the other members of the band, saying "we are brothers." According to Mike Renaud, the president of Upper Management, the split was simply a matter of Baksh wanting to focus his creative energies elsewhere. Brown Brigade will have more of a "classic metal" feel to it, Renaud said, adding that Baksh is currently working on songs and auditioning singers for the band.
