Shinedown’s Barry Kerch 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. Up next, Shinedown drummer Barry Kerch.

“A true inspiration to all drummers out there. I only knew him personally for a short time, but his legacy will live forever. I personally will miss him dearly and so will the whole drumming community.”
