Alright guys, its confirmed on the bands Facebook. "It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing today of Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.

Holy shit! Damn... RIP

EDIT: ^Not cool. I wasn't a fan of his stuff either but it's not about his music, it's about a human dying.

Who cares about your musical taste? I don't like them much either, but a young man just died way too early. At least have the courtesy to say RIP, you heartless douche. RIP.

Wow, this is terrible. He was such an inspiration for me on the drums. Avenged Sevenfold were my favorite band for a long time and I loved his drumming style. This is terrible, he is way too young.

RIP



EDIT: I wonder what the band is going to do about this. I hope this isnt the end of Avenged Sevenfold.

Anyways, expect people to go around saying that he was the greatest drummer ever.

Don't you guys think he was a year too late? You can't be in the 27 club if you're 28.

Ahhh shit that sucks. The rev had a big part in shaping their sound, his drumming style was pretty unique

The band really wasn't that great and his drumming was "meh" at best but still...............28 man


RIP
Legato and fluidity in your playing is where it's at

Ok, I need to say this.

If you're gonna come in here and just say "I never liked them", then don't even bother.

The guy was 28. Thats way too young to die. Show some respect.
RIP Tom Searle.

Man this is so terrible. Avenged Sevenfold was one of my favorite bands for a while. He was way too young and please don't let this turn in to a thread bashing the band. My prayers go out to the band and the families. RIP.

Extremely saddening news. So young and so talented. I wasn't a huge fan of A7X, but that really sucks.

RIP Rev.

That being said, he wasn't by any means a bad drummer - he did what fit. I didn't even like the band. RIP, man, dead too early.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

...innocent day?

Basically April fools day in December. People go around pranking eachother all day.

I'm sure this isn't the end of Avenged Sevenfold ad it seems rather odd that he would pass away today. I'm kinda skeptical but if it's true then RIP

The lack or respect here is sickening. Someone who a lot of people really like died when he was only 28. If you don't like the band, that's fine, but to say you're glad someone is dead!!?!?! Only a ****ing 12 year old would say that.

Grow the **** up people.
