Shadows Fall

In the wake of yesterday's untimely death of Avenged Sevenfold drummer James 'The Rev' Sullivan, friends of the band are remembering the skinsman. Shadows Fall have toured with A7X three times over the course of their career.

"The Rev was truly one of a kind," Shadows Fall frontman Brian Fair says. "No one threw it down quite like he did. He will be missed terribly. May he rest in peace."

"He was a good kid, a great drummer, and generally a funny f---ing dude to be around," added Shadows Fall and Burning Human drummer Jason Bitter.

Sullivan was found in his Huntingon Beach, Calif. home on Dec. 28. Initial reports are that he died of natural causes. He was 28.
