The Rev attended a Catholic school with A7X lead singer M. Shadows, but was kicked out in 2nd grade.

His first record was released when he was at the age of 18. He also has a side project with A7X guitarist Synyster Gates, as well as members from surf-punk band Ballistico, called Pinkly Smooth, in which he sings lead, instead of drumming. His stage name in this band is Rat Head. He was formerly the drummer for third-wave ska band Suburban Legends. Two of his favorite bands are Rancid and Transplants.
