1973 – David Draiman, vocals, Disturbed, is born on This Day In Rock! Disturbed had the 2005 US No.1 album ‘Ten Thousand Fists’.
Draiman is quoted as saying, “the first record I ever bought was Kiss’s Destroyer. And those classic bands like Black Sabbath were my first loves…I focused on the seminal metal bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Pantera and Queensrÿche.”
Draiman continues, “But I could also appreciate the hair metal bands – When you hear Whitesnake, you can’t deny their greatness. Then I went in the direction of punk and new wave, groups like the Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Misfits and later The Smiths and The Cure – that’s was my ’80s.”
“And then when the grunge revolution happened, it was like a wakeup call. I’ll never forget getting my first Nirvana, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains records.
