Disturbed Frontman Promises Bands Return
Disturbed is one of those bands that should quit while it’s ahead.
But no. David Draiman and his merry band of false metal minstrels will return one day.
“The beast certainly is not dead — it’s just sleeping for a little while,” says Dave.
“Look, myself, Dan [Donegan], Mike [Wengren] and John [Moyer], we’ve given our lives to that band, but there’s more to us, each individually,” says Draiman.
“I think that it’s good for each of us to take some time away from something that’s been so all-encompassing in every part of our lives for 16 years,” says Dave, adding that the band’s on good terms.
“We continue to have a very, very huge mutual respect and admiration for another; we check in on each other’s families,” he says. “This was not a hiatus that was brought about by bad blood, this was not a hiatus that was brought about by any sort of legality or for me to decide to start a family or any of the rest of the nonsense that gets thrown out there. All the rest of the guys have families and we’ve been touring on the road with them the entire damn time. So one has nothing to do with the other.”
Quick, someone bludgeon me to death with a tire iron.
