Disturbed’s frontman, Dave Draiman, apologized to the fan he called out during a show recently because she was sending text messages, instead of paying attention to the band’s performance after her claim that she was communicating with her 14-year old son who was home alone during a hailstorm. Except from calling her out from the stage Draiman posted on Facebook about the incident: “That woman was not a fan. She was the date of a real fan who was standing next to her. She was face in phone from the moment the show started ’till the very end. You may not agree with my calling out the girl texting/tweeting/Facebooking the entire show the other night… But when we musicians go up on stage, bleed for our art, leave everything up there, and someone doesn’t even have the decency to watch for even one song, it’s like a slap in the face.” However, Shannon Pardue talked with Dallas Observer about the incident explaining the situation and added: “At first, it ticked me off. But then I just wanted to go away. I told my husband, ‘The most embarrassing thing in my life just happened to me. Rock stars wouldn’t be where they are without people who come to pay for the show. Whether I had my eyes on him or not, I am still there and I can hear them. He’s an amazing singer, and they were good, but it was just his attitude. I’ll never pay to see him again nor will my friends.” Draiman apologized through Loudwire.com: “You know, when I did what I did, it wasn’t me trying to push her away, it was a matter of me trying to engage her. It’s what I’ve done for years and in most circumstances if there is someone who is being passive. They respond positively, ‘Oh, he acknowledged me. He’s really watching. I will get into it and he’s actually paying attention to me,’ and they become more involved. It’s very unfortunate that it backfired obviously with her. Drainan added: “I wasn’t privy to the information of what she had going on and when I made my original Facebook post that information had not yet come out. I feel badly about it and I am sorry. I can only say at this particular point that I think that that tactic may be something that I from here on out remove from my live repertoire because obviously there is the chance of me making that scenario happen again if I don’t have the information that would keep me from making that mistake. So again, I feel badly about it and I am sorry”, he added, “I never want anyone to leave one of our shows feeling badly. The whole idea is to pull them and to make them feel empowered and sometimes you’ve got to be a little forceful when you do that and if she got rubbed the wrong way, that is something that I regret.”
