In Part 1, we delved deep into the Disturbed vocalist’s early years, where he shared some dark history about his childhood. In the second half of Draiman’s Wiki segment, we go into the Disturbed years beginning with Draiman’s grandfather cutting off contact with the singer due to his dream of becoming a rock star.
We also set the record straight about how Draiman came up with the unforgettable “Ooo-wah-ah-ah-ah” noise from “Down With the Sickness.” And guess what? Wikipedia got it dead wrong. David also speaks about a serious condition he suffers from where he was forced to get surgery to prevent acid from continuing to pour on his own vocal cords.
Draiman also goes into Disturbed’s “Prayer” video, which was banned from MTV due to visuals which were considered to resemble the 9/11 attacks. Though Disturbed seriously considered recutting the clip, they ultimately chose not to and Draiman explains why here.
