Disturbed's David Draiman On The Impact Of Fatherhood

(TeamRock Radio) Disturbed frontman David Draiman says becoming a father has made him angrier. Draiman and his wife Lena Yada welcomed their son Samuel into the world in 2013 and his birth had some unexpected effects on the singer - some of which found their way onto Disturbed's comeback album Immortalized.

Draiman tells Full Metal Jackie: "I can't deny the impact of becoming a father and having my son come into this world, and even becoming a husband.

"The irony is that, when people think that in certain ways it softens you - in many ways I'm more defensive and more on guard and more frightened and more angry at everything in this world now that I have them to worry about.

"But on another level, they open your eyes to things. Tracks on this record like Who Taught You How To Hate, coming from watching the innocence of youth and how someone like my son has absolutely no prejudices of any kind and sees everyone as equals, and that it is something that is taught. It isn't something that you're inherently born with." Read more here.
