Shadows Fall’s Brian Fair and Jason Bittner 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, Shadows Fall frontman Brian Fair and drummer Jason Bittner share their thoughts.

“The Rev was a truly one of a kind. No one threw it down quite like he did. He will be missed terribly. May he rest in peace,” Fair says. Bittner adds, “He was a good kid, a great drummer, and a fuckin’ funny dude.”
