Ultimate Guitars asked their readers to vote for their choices as The Top 10 Greatest Drummers Of All Time. Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan made the list at #8.
8. Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan (Avenged Sevenfold)
Jimmy died in 2009 after accidentally overdosing on prescription drugs, but his legacy lives on. Raised on a diet of metal and progressive rock, the Rev made his name as a multi-talented songwriter for Avenged Sevenfold. This video shows his school music teacher talking about how the young prodigy was playing and transcribing Metallica drums by the age of 13 – and how she later learned he had been doing it all on a toy drum kit.
Thanks Dafna for sending this in.
