David and Patrick on Avril Lavigne/The New Cities show in Montreal ?
Simple Plan's friendship with a fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne is definitely a proof that friendships can last for many many years. Back in 2003 Avril took them to her “Try To Shut Me Up Tour”, where mostly David and her turned into really big friends (you may remember the scenes from A Big Packag For You DVD, where Avril carries David to the stage because he hurt his leg after some too risky skateboarding, or the scenes from Avril's DVD, where they ended up together in a closet etc.). And mostly because of all these little things, many rumours started in the past about a possible “more-than-friends” status between these two. Nothing has ever been confirmed.
After eight years we finally have a new picture of David and Avril together because David attended Avril's show in Montreal last night. The show was the last of her Canadian tour with The New Cities. And of course it wouldn't be David if he didn't take this opportunity to play with The New Cities on drums during the song Looks Minus Substance. It's pretty funny that in one of the reviews from last night, the author had mistaken David for “Simple Plan's drummer” and wrote that it was in fact Chuck, who played drums with The New Cities. :)
And it was not only David who spent some time with Avril yesterday – she also made some time for Patrick, who has been working in MusiquePlus for the past three years as a video journalist. Apparantly Avril even demanded that it was him, who would be interviewing her. The two also have many common memories from the 2003 tour, back from when Patrick used to work for Simple Plan
