Shinedown’s Barry Kerch 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, Shinedown drummer Barry Kerch shares his thoughts.

“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.”
