Sébastien Lefebvre (born 5 June 1981) is a French Canadian musician, who is best known as the rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist for pop punk band Simple Plan. Lefebvre grew up in Laval, Québec, and used to work as a janitor at his old high school; Collège Beaubois in Pierrefonds, Quebec.

Lefebvre's surname is properly pronounced, among French speakers, "le-fave", but English speakers generally pronounce it "le-fevra". He has commented on the difference, without pronouncing the French, in his podcasts. On the DVD A Big Package for You, he pronounces it "le-fever" when he introduces himself; however the other band members can be observed smirking as he does so.

Lefebvre's parents divorced when he was in high school. Both remarried, according to the "Simple Plan" credits where he thanks "My four parents." His mother, Lorraine Pépin, works as a children's psychologist and social worker in East Montréal and his father, Jean Lefebvre, works at Human Resources in Central Québec.

Man Of The Hour

Man Of The Hour Hour is an online radio show that features Lefebvre and Simple Plan's former webmaster, photographer, and videographer Patrick Langlois. "Man of the Hour" began as a proposed side project to include himself, Patrick Langlois and Bowling For Soup's leading man, Jaret Reddick, though no songs were ever actually recorded. However, T-shirts and other promotional items were made. With no spare time to devote to developing the band, it turned into the radio show they have today; "Man of The Hour Hour", on idobi radio...
