Device Guitarist Disturbed David Draiman Pulled Plug On Band

(TeamRock Radio) The guitarist in David Draiman's shelved side project Device says the group wasn't given a chance to develop by the singer. Andre 'Virus' Karkos says the rug was pulled out from under Device just as they were about to hit the big time. Draiman formed Device in 2012 during Disturbed's hiatus, but pulled the plug just as they were about to go on a potentially lucrative tour.

Karkos tells Talk Toomey: "Device was extremely successful for the little time it was around. If it just was left to do what it was supposed to do and we gave it the proper time and attention, like we were gonna, that band would have been huge. I have no doubt about that. "The first single went to No.1. Things were great, and we sold a bunch of records. I think that we were at 110,000 records when David pulled the plug.

"The tour that we walked away from before it was all over was Avenged Sevenfold headlining, Five Finger Death Punch was main support, and then it was Device. That was the tour that we had lined up, and David walked away. That band could have been a really large band." Read more here.
