Synyster Gates and The Rev nickname origin

Synyster Gates (Brian Elwin Haner Jr.) came up with his name during a drunken drive through a park, where he reportedly screamed, “My name is Synyster Gates and I am awesome!” Gates screamed out the name in the presence of drummer The Rev (James Owen Sullivan), who also made up his own nickname, ‘The Reverend Tholomew Plague.’
