During my radio career, I have interviewed tons of people but few have been nicer or more intelligent than David Draiman. The front man of Disturbed has unleashed a new project while the monster is on hiatus. Device has him jumping into the electronic realm with co-conspirator Geno Lenardo (formally of Filter). David sees the industrial rock band as akin to NIN more than the other electronic musical movements of today.
We got to spend close to a half hour on David's bus, before the second show of the Device tour, at The Culture Room Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Our interview was slightly delayed due to David having to eat dinner and he could not stop apologizing for it. He really is a super-nice, laid-back dude! (I had no problem with it, I got to spend more time with Gemini Syndrome and Falseta...look for their interviews shortly.)
