Disturbed Discuss Axl Rose Fronting AC/DC and Whether They’d Continue Without a Core Member
What does a band do if one of its core members can no longer perform? AC/DC decided to continue on with Axl Rose as their singer, but how would other bands react?
Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez spoke with Disturbed's David Draiman and Dan Donegan at Rock on the Range about that very topic. First they offered their thoughts on the AC/DC situation with Axl Rose, and Draiman said he supported the decision. The singer explained that the performances he saw online of Rose fronting AC/DC were impressive. However, Donegan had a different opinion, saying he thought AC/DC were too hasty in announcing Axl Rose as their new singer. He felt that they should have allowed more time for their fans to digest the news that Brian Johnson could no longer perform due to hearing issues.
But what if the same thing happened to Disturbed? Let's say Draiman or one of the other founding members could no longer perform. What would they do? See what Donegan and Draiman told Loudwire in the video above.
