I haven’t been into Avenged Sevenfold for a while and I’m sure a lot of people in the metal community will bash them for going too mainstream, but it’s always a sad day when a young musician dies.
James Owen Sullivan, drummer of Avenged Sevenfold, was found dead in his home yesterday, December 28th, at 1 pm. The Orange County Coroner’s Office is investigating his death at the moment, but they’re saying he died of natural causes, which is a rather dubious claim, to say the least.
The Rev was 28, just missing out on joining the 27 Club, a group of musicians that died at age 27, including Jimi Hendrix and Curt Cobain.
And so, 2009 takes another one. Condolences to the band and their friends and family.
