Bleeding Through’s Brandan Schieppati Remembers Avenged Sevenfold’s The Rev
This week marks the two-year anniversary of the untimely passing of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy “the Rev” Sullivan. To mark the occasion, all this week on RevolverMag.com we’ll be bringing you memories of the Rev from his friends in the hard rock and metal community. First up, Bleeding Through frontman Brandan Schieppati.
“[When Avenged Sevenfold formed], it was the only thing Jimmy had, so he strived to become a really good drummer. He played like his life depended on it because it truly did. Whenever he’d see people from the past, like Bleeding Through or Eighteen Visions, his face would light up and he’d make you feel like you were still an important part of his life, even though he had gone and done greater things with his career. He really had a big heart and was kind and warm to everybody.”
