We’re learning of yet another tragic young death in the entertainment world – Avenged Sevenfold drummer James Owen Sullivan, aka The Rev, has been found dead at his home in Huntington Beach, CA. He was only 28.
The cause of death is unknown; the Orange County Coroner’s Office is still investigating and has yet to make an official announcement.
Avenged Sevenfold formed in Huntington Beach in 1999 and the five-man metalcore band went on to win Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2006. According to their MySpace page they were working on their fifth album together.
No doubt this is a difficult time for his wife, Leana MacFadden, (aka Leana Silver) and his stepdaughter Ravyn Alexandra, 1. Our thoughts go out them as well as his family, friends and bandmates at this difficult time.
