David Draiman Wants to Collab with Taylor Swift: “She’s One of the Great Songwriters of Our Time”


Taylor Swift continues her takeover of the world on a daily basis, selling out stadiums and clogging up record plants with represses and new editions of her 14-album discography. Apparently Disturbed frontman David Draiman has caught the Swiftie bug and would love to perform or collaborate with Taylor Swift in the future. In a new interview with WMMR, he said:

“I think that she is one of the most prolific songwriters of our generation. I think she is insanely talented. I’d love to collaborate with Taylor if she ever wanted to, on any given day.”

“I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I think she’s a brilliant woman. I think she’s, like I said, one of the great songwriters of our time. I love her gumption. I love the fact that she gets on stage in front of tens of thousands of screaming young female fans and plays a real instrument and sings live and is the real deal. I mean, there are a number of people within the pop genre that still do it the way that she does it — Pink is one of them; Lady Gaga is one of them. A lot of these people are just so gifted and so great at what they do, and she’s certainly waywayway up there. I have nothing but the utmost respect for her.”

Of course Disturbed want to collaborate with Taylor Swift. It must be really hard to have spent the last 23 years of your career coasting off of a really big single that opened the door for more really big singles. Unfortunately for Disturbed, guitarist Dan Donegan feels the need to do things like whine about cancel culture—which hasn’t even affected Disturbed—on his guitar (which Draiman thinks is brave activism), which means that Taylor Swift is definitely never going to look their way. If she did collab with a metal artist, we all know it would be Metallica.
