IN OTHER NEWS, DAVID DRAIMAN THINKS THE GANGS FROM WEST SIDE STORY ARE THE VERY DEFINITION OF “TOUGH”

Are there any Arrested Development fans in the house? Remember the episode where Tobias (David Cross) buys a gay bar and then hires a group of male strippers to pose as a dancing street gang to try and clean up the streets of real gangs (e.g., Bloods, Crips, etc.), and then they all get shot as Tobias screams out “We’ve miscalculated!”?

I don’t know what just made me think of that.

ANYWAY, I thought the whole Dillinger Escape Plan/Disturbed beef was over and done with (If you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what I’m talking about, you can read about the conflict here, here, and here. If you think that this is petty bullshit and you can’t believe that we’re reporting on this for the umpteenth time, then you’re reading the wrong website and I think you’d feel more comfortable here.). But I guess the fellas in Disturbed felt like they had to get the last word.

Blabbermouth reports that D-turbed guitarist Dom DeLuise Dan Donegan “confronted” DEP shredder Ben Weinman about the incident at the UK’s Download Festival a couple of weeks back – an event which seems to have instilled Disturbed rabbinical student monkey impersonator singer David Draiman with no small sense of pride:

“We wish [The Dillinger Escape Plan] whatever luck and success they may have. They just need to learn that, look, you know [chuckles], be careful what you say, because there are guys like Danny who’ll walk up to you, so…”

So, um, there you have it, folks. Don’t mess with Disturbed, because they might walk up to you. Then you’ll be sorry.
