Fozzy’s Chris Jericho 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. Below, Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho pays tribute.

“He was a great drummer, but when I saw them live I was also impressed by how much singing he did. He was a great singer. He sang all the high parts. I thought he was as important to Avenged Sevenfold’s vocal sound as Michael Anthony was to Van Halen. Also, I think he was just getting started. It’s such a shame because who knows what would have happened in the future with his playing.”

    I completely agree. The Rev was an incredible man, it’s such a shame he left this world at only 28. He was such a bright soul, he could of- and probably would have- changed the world in so many unimaginable ways. I can’t imagine how the rest of the band feels about the loss, but to know they’re living his legacy on is great. Rest In Peace Jimmy, I hope to meet you someday.

      I agree with both Jericho and the guy that commented. He was a great part of Avenged Sevenfold. It’s so hard to listen to Avenged Sevenfold and not think about how much Jimmy is truly missed. xxfoREVerxx
