mindyourmind.ca caught up with singer Joey Cape of punk band, Lagwagon, and talked about the loss of the bands late drummer and friend, Derrick Plourde. Derrick, diagnosed with bipolar disorder and battling a drug addiction, tragically committed suicide on March 30, 2005. His friend Joey tells us a bit about who he was and about some of his struggles, as he knew them. With 8 albums to date, Lagwagons latest, entitled Resolve, is all about the life of Derrick, with every single song being about or for him. Written almost entirely by Joey in 2-3 weeks, the album was therapy, he notes, and provided him with an outlet for his grief.
