The family of the late Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan released a statement today thanking fans for their support. The statement, released on the band's Myspace, is as follows:
We would like to thank all of Jimmy’s fans for the heartfelt comments that have been posted – it is comforting to know that his genius and antics were appreciated and that he was loved so much. Our hearts are broken – he was much too young to fall.
