Pierre Charles Bouvier MSC (born 9 May 1979) is a Canadian singer and musician, best known for being the lead vocalist and studio bassist of the rock band Simple Plan.[1]

Personal life

Bouvier was born to Réal and Louise Bouvier. He has two older brothers, Jay and Jonathan.

Before and partly during his early musical career, Bouvier worked as a cook at St-Hubert in Montréal. Bouvier has two daughters, and has been married to Lachelle Farrar since 2013.[citation needed]

Career

When Bouvier was 13 or 14 years old, he founded the punk rock band Reset with his best friend Chuck Comeau in which he was the bass guitarist and lead vocalist. He was not happy with Reset and left the band in 1999, a year after Comeau's departure in 1998. His former bandmate David Desrosiers took his place as lead vocalist and bass guitarist. He later met Comeau at a Sugar Ray concert and joined him in creating Simple Plan with old schoolmates Desrosiers, Jeff Stinco, and Sébastien Lefebvre.

He hosted the MTV reality show Damage Control.[2][3]
