Most recently, The Rev played with Avenged Sevenfold. The Rev and his band won 'Best New Artist' at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards, beating out Rihanna in a controversial decision. The Rev often told the press about his taste for illegal drugs and the 'Rock and Roll' lifestyle. However, no official statements have been released about the cause of his death.
The Rev will be missed by fans, friends, and family. Hopefully this tragedy will not also be the end of Avenged Sevenfold, but keep an eye out for official statements from the band.
