Dave Nizaam Baksh was born on July 26, 1980 in Ajax, Ontario, Canada to West Indian-Canadian immigrants from Guyana. He is the former lead guitarist in the Canadian punk rock band Sum 41, and has since become a singer/guitarist in his own heavy metal/reggae project Brown Brigade. He currently plays guitar for Organ Thieves.
Baksh joined Sum 41 as the third member, after Deryck Whibley and Steve Jocz formed the band in the summer of 1996. In addition to being the lead guitarist, Baksh also provided back up-vocals.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
