Avenged Sevenfold Remember The Rev With ‘So Far Away’ [VIDEO]
The success of the latest Avenged Sevenfold album Nightmare has been bittersweet after the loss of their drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan in December of 2009. Check out the new video for their latest single “So Far Away” that pays tribute to their fallen brother.
I had the opportunity to interview the band the week after they dropped the latest album Nightmare and it was obvious the memory of The Rev was still something they were learning to deal with. They also said that even though Mike Portnoy recorded the drum tracks for the record, The Rev’s drum parts were honored, he contributed to much of the writing process, and that this felt like “the last album with The Rev on it”. Check out this really cool video for So Far Away where they honor their friend’s memory.
