Here you can talk about the lovely Arin Ilejay. I for one want to start this thread off with a topic of discussion: What do you think his stage name would/should be?

I intend to think of all manner of stupid names, incorporating Muffin and Piss-ant.

In some ways, I don't want him to have a stage name.
But then, I also do.


It's so weird trying to think of a stage name for him.

I'd say cause he's Christian he should have Christ in there, but Johnny has that one haha.

Thoughts, anyone?


PS: Everyone must get used to my love for Ilejay... You'll see soon enough...

I doubt he'd get one, it's just fun to think of the possibilities :')
I really hope he stays with them past 2011 though.

Oh my god it would break my heart if it didn't work out.
I think a LOT of people have taken to him to be honest.

I know if it's not right for them, they have to do what they have to do, but I am praying it works out.

Me too, because he just seems to fit.
His style is almost identical to Jimmy's and they get on, so fingers crossed.
Matt said in a Kerrang interview that it was more down to what writing with him was like than anything.

ARIN YOU BETTER PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS WHEN THEY START THE NEXT ALBUM WITH YOU

I'm pretty sure Arin will be around for a while. I believe Matt said "This is Arin, the guy who will be helping us keep A7X around for the next 25-35 years." Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

He did say that. In Chile I think Very Happy


I don't know if he meant that Arin has stepped in at a time they needed someone to, which means they can now continue, or whether it means he'll stay with them.

We'll see...

I really, really hope he's permanent. He's just... perfect.

I first saw him in Battle Creek, Michigan in February and, I'll admit... when I first saw this little skinny kid walk out onto the stage I was like "WTF?" Then as soon as he started playing, me and my friend both looked at each other and went "HOLY CRAP!"

The kid can play... and he seems like such a sweetheart. I've heard nothing but positive things about him from the boys, and from fans who have met him. I truly believe he's a gift from Jimmy. At points during shows where I've seen him live I've had to do a double-take.

My friends and I took to calling him "Baby Jimmy" after the first show we saw him.

HE NEEDS TO STAY.

Very Happy

My dad is a huge Sevenfold fan, and I met up with him after they played at Download, and he was like

"Who is the new drummer?! He's fucking amazing!" I was just like 'Dammmmn straight'.


I think everyone has fallen in love with him.

It's funny when you look at him compared to the rest of the band, especially Matt.
