Rocker Deryck Whibley is overcoming his booze battle with the help of reformed hellraisers Iggy Pop and Tommy Lee.

In May, the Sum 41 star revealed he had been hospitalized in an intensive care unit after his kidneys and liver collapsed following years of hard boozing.

He has now quit drinking and is determined to keep on a straight path, and he has revealed several fellow stars who have battled booze demons are helping him adjust to a life of sobriety.

Whibley tells Kerrang! magazine, “Now I’m sober, I don’t get calls from certain people that I used to… the drinking friends. Now I’m the bum-out to them. Who wants to invite the sober guy to the party?

“Y’know who has been incredibly supportive? Iggy Pop. He had a lot of great advice; he’s been through it all. We’ve been friends for years. Same for Tommy Lee from Motley Crue. He told me what to expect from people, that not everyone will understand. Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum from Guns N’ Roses have been great too. We go out for coffee and talk about (expletive).”
