Avenged Sevenfold Drummer Dies – Metal Online Magazine brings you another great heavy metal story straight from the horse’s mouth!
Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan was found dead in his home in Huntington Beach, CA on Monday. He was 28 years old. According to the Associated Press, an autopsy on Sullivan was inconclusive, and authorities are awaiting the results of toxicology and other tests before determining a cause of death. It could take several weeks for those results.
The band posted the following message on their official site: “It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing today of Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan. Jimmy was not only one of the world’s best drummers, but more importantly he was our best friend and brother. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy’s family and we hope that you will respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
“Jimmy you are forever in our hearts.
We love you.”
Our condolences to The Rev’s family, friends and bandmates.
