New book chronicles Simple Plan's story

Quebec's "Simple Plan" has sold more than 9-million albums and travelled to 52 countries since 1999. Their story, from a Montreal area high-school to stages all over the world, is chronicled in a new 300-page book, available in both English and in French, called "Simple Plan: The Official Story/L'Histoire Officielle." Two of the five guys, Chuck Comeau and Sébastien Lefebvre, sat down with the CBC's Rachelle Solomon to flip through this literary release about a musical journey.
