Glad to see him win the metal category. Wish he’d got better than runner up in the others, but ah well. He can’t get everything he deserves. :-/

I like how he was a runner up along with Mike Portnoy in the Prog category. It seems appropriate. :P

Congrats Jimmy, you will always be the best. Rest in peace.

Im glad that he won the Metal category and Recorded performance category but how was jimmy a Prog drummer? I guess they mean that his personal style was progressive but i would have thought that prog drummer means the best drummer in a prog metal/rock band.

Yeah that was my thinking too, weird.

Dear God I pray James Sullivan is in a little piece of heaven in the afterlife, making the angels scream. He seized the day in bat country then burned it down, his unholy confessions trashed and scattered. We gave him the strength of the world and he gave us a second heartbeat. He is MIA, but will walk on through thick and thin to the wicked end. May you be in eternal rest. A synyster man who will leave his shadows behind and strikes with a vengeance, fearing no christ for he is the Rev
