Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Frontman Urges Fans To Celebrate Tragic Sullivan

AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. SHADOWS is urging fans to celebrate the life of tragic drummer JIMMY 'THE REV' SULLIVAN on Tuesday (28Dec10) - one year after the musician's death.
The band members were left devastated when Sullivan died from a drug overdose on 28 December, 2009. He was 28.
Shadows admits he still struggles to deal with the grief, but he's urging his bandmates and their fans to celebrate the rocker's life on the day that marks the tragedy.
He tells Kerrang! magazine, "It's a daily struggle since Jimmy's death. There are good days and bad days - days where you don't think about it so much, and then there are 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 (09Feb11) and not necessarily his death. 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 f**king awesome he was."
Avenged Sevenfold recruited Sullivan's favourite drummer, Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy, for their summer (10) shows. Portnoy was dismissed from the group earlier this month (Dec10).
