Loudwire website recently asked Disturbed vocalist David Draiman about the track ‘Fire it Up’ and particularly about marijuana legalization, since the song is praising Draiman’s all-time inspiration booster, weed.
“After 90, 100 songs that you’ve written in your career, you kind of start struggling to write about subject matter that you haven’t already written about,” says Draiman. “Out of left field, Danny [Donegan, guitar] made the suggestion, ‘You know what, dude? Why not write about what has helped you open up all these years? Why not write about a little inspiration from the beautiful, beautiful, green sticky icky goodness that ends up opening up the pathways to your mind?” Draiman said to Loudwire.
