Fozzy’s Chris Jericho Remembers Avenged Sevenfold’s The Rev
Like you, we here at Revolver are still mourning the loss of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan. That’s why we included a poster of him and an obituary in the March/April issue, on stands now. Many of the Rev’s peers wanted to weigh in, too, so over the past few weeks, we've been posting their remembrances. Here, Fozzy frontman, WWE wrestler, and Revolver Golden Gods co-host Chris Jericho concludes this series.
“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.”
