Music News | Dec 29th, 2009

Another young person has passed away at an earlier age, reportedly of natural causes as well. Avenged Sevenfold announced that their drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan has died at the age of 28. There aren’t a lot of details yet but I’m sure more info will surface down the road on what actually happened with Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan.

The band posted the news of their bandmate’s death on their website in the early hours of this morning (29), paying tribute to the drummer.

“It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing today of Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan,” they wrote on

“Jimmy was not only one of the world’s best drummers, but more importantly he was our best friend and brother. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy’s family and we hope that you will respect their privacy during this difficult time. Jimmy you are forever in our hearts. We love you.”
