Avenged Sevenfold’s Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan Temporarily Declared Immortal on Wikipedia

The Rev Wiki Side

For several hours yesterday (June 26), beloved Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan was declared immortal on Wikipedia, which listed his lifespan as “James Owen Sullivan (February 9, 1981 – ∞),” showing the symbol for infinity as his date of death. His Wiki page also showed his music career as lasting from “1998-∞.”

Tragedy struck the rock and metal community when The Rev was found dead in his Huntington Beach home on Dec. 28, 2009. Avenged Sevenfold fans will proudly claim that The Rev will never die, and for a while there on Wikipedia, that notion was listed as fact.

If you’ve watched our ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?‘ series, you know that not everything that’s listed on Wikipedia is indeed fact, but there’s no arguing that The Rev’s music will live on forever. This news about The Rev also reminds us of when Wikipedia officially declared Metallica frontman James Hetfield as a table in reference to the singer’s cries of “I am the table!” from Metallica’s critically maligned work with Lou Reed, ‘Lulu.’

Check out the screenshots we caught of The Rev’s Wikipedia page before his date of death was switched back to 2009. No matter what the facts say on Wikipedia, Avenged Sevenfold fans are as hardcore as they come. So this continued celebration of his (everlasting) life once again demonstrates the love he drew from fans and the impact of his contributions to the rock and metal world.
