Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix 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 coming days, we’ll post remembrances by the Rev’s friends, people he looked up to and artists who looked up to him. Here, Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix shares his thoughts.

“Not only was he a great and innovative drummer/song writer, he was a leader who truly cared about his band his fans and all his friends. I admire that about him.”
