    Sullivan was 28. The Orange County Coroner's Office is investigating the death.
    Avenged Sevenfold formed in Huntington Beach in 1999. Sullivan was a member from the beginning.
    Since then, the five-man group has put out four albums and won Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2006. The group's self-titled fourth album hit No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2007. According to a message posted by Zacky Vengeance on the band's MySpace page, the group was hard a work on a fifth album.
    By Monday evening, whispers about Sullivan's death had spread to the band's fan sites on the Internet, which quickly filled with messages of condolence.

    That is a shitty deal. He must have had a pretty crapy family medical history if he died of natural causes that young.

    "natural causes" in this case simply means that it does not appear that he was murdered, that he didnt die with a needle in his arm, or from an accidental injury or suicide


    much like the anorexic coke whore that kicked it last week... the "natural causes" in this case could have had any of countless influences, from the wear and tear of substance abuse, to infectious diseases, to medical conditions, etc etc etc...

    oh well...

    rest in peace
