It’s never easy to have to replace a band mate and friend at the best of times. But Avenged Sevenfold’s situation was made more difficult due to the death of their much loved brother Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan. However, although there have been replacements since, the band have announced that former Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman will be their next man behind the kit.

The news was announced on Chris Jericho’s podcast, Talk Is Jericho.

M Shadows stated: “To be honest, Brooks’ name has always been in the mix. It was one of the names we were throwing around when Jimmy [The Rev] passed away in terms of who was going to step up for Nightmare. We felt Mike Portnoy was the right choice and we still feel that way. Mike just destroyed on the record. He was perfect. But at the time, our tour manager brought up Brooks’ name as well. But at the time he was also busy with Bad Religion and it was also… People were going to look at it differently because he was a punk drummer at this point.”

Interesting but exciting times!
