In a recent interview with Kerrang! Avenged Sevenfold’s M Shadows talks about celebrating The Rev’s life.
On December 28, 2009 the rock world was shocked and saddened by the tragic death of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan. He was 28-years-old.
One year on, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows urges fans to celebrate The Rev’s life and not his death.
“It’s a daily struggle since Jimmy’s death,” he told Kerrang! “There are good days and bad days – days where you don’t think about it so much, and then there’re days where you sit there and just can’t believe it. We’re just trying to move forward and live our lives as best we can, and we’re just happy to be here right now.
“We’re going to celebrate his birthday [February 9] and not necessarily his death,” he added. “But I think I’ll want to get together [with the rest of the band] and watch his tribute video and talk about him. We do that every day anyway, but [today] I just want to keep it chilled and remember the guy for how fucking awesome he was.”
