Disturbed's Plans For 2012 Include Impregnation

For a band as big as the are - four of their five studio albums debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 - Chicago's very own Disturbed doesn't seem to get much attention around here.

Guitarist Dan Donegan is from Oak Lawn, drummer Mike Wengren is from Evergreen Park, and founding bass player Steve "Fuzz" Kmak still lives in Chicago with his wife and two children though he's no longer in the band. Brooklyn-born singer David Draiman was hired off an ad placed by the others in the Illinois Entertainer. The band started out playing clubs around town and still has rehearsal space here.

Draiman is the Disturbed's main source of fascination; he's a Jewish libertarian who was a health care administrator before joining the band. (He's also an interactive tweeter who answers fans' questions on a wide range of topics.)

Draiman announced in July that the band was going on hiatus but there's still a flurry of activity on the docket. Here's what he has planned for the coming year (from the Artisan News Service).
