Avenged Sevenfold frontman M.Shadows, in a new interview with Metal Hammer, said the late drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan would approve of the new album ‘Life Is But A Dream’.
M.Shadows said: “He’d be stoked. Me and Synyster Gates know that guy better than anyone. He was always the biggest proponent of instigation and trying new things.”
M.Shadows said the song Mattel includes a bridge written by The Rev that never found a place, while the song Beautiful Morning includes lyrics that the drummer and Gates wrote for their band Pinkly Smoooth.
About Beatiful Morning lyrics, M.Shadows said: “That’s something him and Brian came up with a long time ago: ‘It’s a beautiful morning, it’s a beautiful day, everybody is smiling, in a beautiful way,. That’s when the song gets creepy.”
