Saosin’s Cove Reber and Chris Sorenson Remember 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, Saosin frontman Cove Reber and bassist Chris Sorenson share their thoughts.

“Jimmy was almost as good of a drummer as he was a singer. Most people don’t realize how many of the high notes were actually coming from his pipes behind that drum kit. Avenged Sevenfold are truly unique, and, in our eyes, Jimmy will always be one the best drummers we’ve ever toured with.”
