Disturbed’s David Draiman Talks Exit From Twitter, Presidential Election
If you're a hard rock and metal music fan, odds are pretty good you've perused through David Draiman's Twitter account at some point over the last few years. The Disturbed and Device frontman became one of the "must follow" personalities on Twitter due to his commitment to interaction with those who followed him and his interesting takes on things both in and outside of the music world. But earlier this year, Draiman decided to shut down his Twitter account.
In the video interview above, Draiman discusses his decision to leave Twitter, revealing that things just got out of control and he found he was spending too much time trying to keep up and taking time away from his family to do so. The rocker takes a humorous shot at himself, adding, "My opinions are my opinions. People have heard enough of them. I've been a big mouth for long enough."
And while Draiman no longer has his Twitter platform, that doesn't mean he's not engaged with the politics of the world. In the clip above, we asked the politically minded vocalist his thoughts on the current Presidential election and he doesn't really throw his hat in on any particular candidate. In fact, he has some rather pointed thoughts on the candidates as a whole. See what he says in the video above.
Disturbed are gearing up for a big 2016, when they'll hit the road in support of the newly released Immortalized album. Check out their upcoming gigs here.
