The Rev A7X meninggal


Di penghujung tahun 2009, dunia musik kembali berduka. Kali ini kabar duka datang dari band cadas Avenged Sevenfold. Sang drummer yang bernama James Owen Sullivan ditemukan tak bernyawa di rumahnya sendiri yang terletak di Huntington Beach pada Senin (28/12) waktu setempat.

Tak banyak informasi yang bisa didapat mengenai kematian mendadak musisi yang dikenal dengan sebutan The Rev kala berada di atas panggung tersebut.

Kepolisian Orange County hanya mengumumkan jika sedang melakukan penyelidikan untuk mendapatkan keterangan soal penyebab kematian itu. Namun sejauh ini mereka belum melaporkan adanya kejanggalan yang terjadi.

Avenged Sevenfold sendiri terbentuk di Huntington Beach pada tahun 1999. The Rev tidak hanya fokus di situ, melainkan memiliki proyek sampingan bersama Pinkly Smooth.

The Rev, pria kelahiran 10 Januari 1981 ini meninggalkan seorang istri bernama Leana MacFadden atau yang lebih dikenal dengan nama Leana Silver.

Padahal belum lama ini Avenged Sevenfold manggung di Jakarta dan tentunya masih banyak lagu²nya yang asik², seperti Dear God, Seize the Day, Beast and The Harlot, dll. Semoga A7X masih bisa tetap berkarya walaupun tanpa drummernya yang mantap ini.

Seize the Day


Dm                F                   G
Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
        F              A#
It's empty and cold without you here,
          C               Dm
Too many people to ache over
G                  C
I see my vision burn,
                              F
I feel my memories fade with time
C                     Dm
But I'm too young to worry
G                       C
These streets we travel on
                            F
Will undergo our same lost past
Dm                    G                      F
I found you here, now please just stay for a while
           C                Dm
I can move on with you around
             G                 F             C
I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever?
Dm     G               F
I'd do anything for a smile,
             C                 Dm
Holding you till our time is done
                 G
We both know the day will come
    F                 C
But I don't want to leave you
G                   C
I see my vision burn,
                              F
I feel my memories fade with time
     C                Dm
But I'm too young to worry

A melody, a memory, or just one picture
Dm                F                   G
Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
        F              A#
It's empty and cold without you here,
          C               Dm
Too many people to ache over
Dm              G              F
Newborn life replacing all of us,
                C            Dm
Changing this fable we live in
             G              F         C
No longer needed here so where do we go?
Dm         G                 F
Will you take a journey tonight,
           C                   Dm
Follow me past the walls of death?
          G                 F            C
But girl, what if there is no eternal life?
G                 C
I see my vision burn,
                              F
I feel my memories fade with time
C                     Dm

Dear God …. let’s check it out!!!

Intro:  F C Dm Am B F C   x2  

 F        C             Dm                 Am
A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Bb               F            C
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find
F          C           Dm                 Am
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
      Bb                 F
Can't help but wish that I was there
      C
Back where I'd love to be, oh yeah
F    C       Dm          C
Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
    Bb                     F
to hold her when I'm not around,
          C
when I'm much too far away
F        C         Dm           C
We all need that person who can be true to you
       Bb              F
But I left her when I found her
    C
And now I wish I'd stayed
            Bb            C
’Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
                  Dm  C  Bb
I'm missing you again oh no
           F
Once again
F                C          Dm              Am
There's nothing here for me on this barren road
        Bb                        F
There's no one here while the city sleeps
      C
and all the shops are closed
F               C            Dm                 Am
Can't help but think of the times I've had with you
Bb                F              C
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah
F    C        Dm           C
Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
     Bb                       F
to hold her when I'm not around,
          C
when I'm much too far away
F      C         Dm             C
We all need that person who can be true to you
   Bb              F
I left her when I found her
    C
And now I wish I'd stayed
           Bb             C
’Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
                 Dm   C  Bb
I'm missing you again oh no
          F
Once again
Dm       A   Bb              F
Some search, never finding a way
Dm      A   Bb            F
Before long, they waste away
Dm      A  Bb                      F
I found you, something told me to stay
Dm     A   Bb              F
I gave in, to selfish ways
Gm                         C
And how I miss someone to hold  

when hope begins to fade...  

F         C             Dm                 Am
A lonely road, crossed another cold state line

Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
    Bb               F

            F
Once again
