DISTURBED Guitarist On The Band's Future

Jason Le Miere of Revolver magazine recently conducted an interview with DISTURBED guitarist Dan Donegan. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Revolver: Has it been hard adjusting to life back at home without the band commitments?

Dan: Yeah. I mean it is definitely a culture shock. It's funny because, just this past weekend, or Monday was Columbus Day, so my daughter was off school. So Sunday night, we decided to go downtown and stay in a hotel. [Laughs] Because I'm so used to that life, you know, and my kids are.

Revolver: What have you got planned for the next few months?

Dan: I've been saying it all along, too, part of what I'm looking forward while taking this break is being that fan in the crowd again. That's gonna inspire me, that's gonna push me. One thing, you know, I wanna make clear is that there's been a little confusion on or misunderstanding on maybe some comments that David [Draiman, vocals] had made to the people who were questioning is, you know, we didn't decide to take this break because we wanna pursue other things. At least I didn't. I don't know really where the other guys heads are at. But within our discussions the plan wasn't, like, we wanna pursue other things so let's take a break. Other than that, it's just a matter of if and when the phone rings, or somebody picks up the phone and says, "Hey, where's your head at? How do you feel about this? Do you wanna" you know, "Do we miss it enough? Are we on the same page of wanting to write again or to tour again?" I like to think that the longer, as long as we're away from it, it's only gonna make us miss it more , you know, because that's all we know, that's all we've loved and done. So I'd like to think that there's gonna come a point where we're all gonna be, like, I was waiting for somebody to pick up the phone and say, "Hey, let's get going."
