Speaking in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Disturbed frontman David Draiman has shared his thoughts on being objective when he listen other band’s songs.
He said “I can be objective about other people’s music, but when it comes to our own, I’m paranoid as f*ck”.
Here’s the full of statement:
“I did have major concerns going in. I remember playing the track for a bunch of my colleagues and friends prior to it coming out, very secretively, and really being unsure. They were like, ‘Don’t be, this is magic. You’ve got lightning in a bottle here.’
I can come off as pretty confident most of the time, but truth be told, I’m my own severe, horrific critic. I can be objective about other people’s music, but when it comes to our own, I’m paranoid as fuck.”
During the recent interview with Loudwire, he spoke about social media and said:
“Social media has become a high school playground where the challenge is what idiot can come up with the best insult, and do you end up congratulating ’em for it.
It’s really sad. Either that or people just pushing their own respective ideas on everyone, trying to shove everything down everybody else’s throats, and so much elitism and so much lack of camaraderie and lack of unity. It’s become a very, very ugly thing.”
