Voila un communique donne par le groupe lui-meme :
"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing today of Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.
Jimmy was not only one of the world's best drummers, but more importantly he was our best friend and brother.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy's family and we hope that you will
respect their privacy during this difficult time.
Jimmy you are forever in our hearts.
We love you.
M Shadows, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance and Johnny Christ"
