"The Rev" Passes Away

I'm a big fan of Avenged Sevenfold, and yesterday afternoon, their drummer, Jimmy "the Rev" Sullivan passed away at the age of 28. He was found dead at home; right now his death has been described as "natural causes", but some suspicions are that he had died from a drug overdose.

Definitely one of my biggest musical inspirations. He was definitely one of the best drummers out there, he wrote most of the songs on Avenged Sevenfold's newest album, he did backup vocals, piano, and co-started the band.

All of this happened as they have been recording their 6th album, which was set to come out in 2010. No idea what's happening to that now. 2009 has been a solemn year for musicians and celebrities.

For those of you who have never heard of the band, here's a few of their songs:

Self-titled album (2007): Scream: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JtYlaPYh3w

City of Evil album (2005): Bat Country:

Waking the Fallen (2003): Unholy Confessions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXSV4WRfqvg
