Was on Twitter and found this. Apparently David doesn't know his dad's running for mayor. The convo is as follows (David tweets in all caps btw):

JohnnyMcG John McGettrick
@ @DAVIDMDRAIMAN David wikipedia stated you father is running for mayor is it true?

DAVIDMDRAIMAN DAVID DRAIMAN
@ @JohnnyMcG DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WE'RE NOT ON SPEAKING TERMS. I WOULDN'T VOTE FOR HIM IF HE WAS.

JohnnyMcG John McGettrick
@ @DAVIDMDRAIMAN wikipedia posted information about it. Sorry man.

@DAVIDMDRAIMAN
DAVID DRAIMAN
@JohnnyMcG I KEEP ERASING IT AND SOMEONE KEEPS REPLACING IT. PROBABLY HIM.

That is strange, okay, since him and his father are not on speaking trems, he did say in the past that David & His Father were not on good speaking trems period because David is a lead singer to a heavy metal group thats the whole reason why, and personally I whould agree with David entirely about not vote for him because of things that happened in his family in the past years of Davids life.

Actually this doesn't surprise me at all. He's mentioned that his family didn't like him running off to become a rockstar. And I bet that if they knew he was marrying Lena, they'd flip because she isn't Jewish. That'd definitely keep them from speaking to each other.

Although it does surprise me that he keeps deleting the side note about his dad's running for mayor and it keeps reappearing. I did notice that on his father's site, he had taken text from David's wiki page (which if I didn't know any better, he did it cause he didn't know how to explain exactly what it is his son does and is known for), so maybe that IS his dad putting it up every time David removes it.

But, hey, I don't know for sure. Those are just my thoughts. But it is interesting to hear David's side of the story.

I've always wondered what David thinks of his father running for office. Apparently, he's not too thrilled about it and now we know that they're not really speaking to each other. David has every right to be pissed if he is. The way things on Mr. YJ Draiman's page look, he's using David's fame to round up votes.

I'm not really one to do much speculating in a public forum, but the fact that David and his father aren't speaking doesn't come as a surprise to me. It sounds like this is a long standing thing between them.

As for the fact that Lena isn't Jewish... none of David's fiancees have been Jewish that I know of. If the problem is with David's fiancee, well, Mr. Draiman has to realize his son is nearly 40 years old and can marry whomever the heck he wants.

But, again, that's speculation, therefore it's not my place to say it is or it is not the reasons behind this. Maybe it's the fact that Mr. Draiman is trying to run for office... and the mayorship of Los Angeles is a pretty big goal.

Okay so....Davids not talking to dad and family thinks he's the black sheep....I've got news....my family thinks the same crap about me...I am a black sheep because I spent most of my live doing what I choose to do...and yeah I don't really know what's going on with my relatives either since they stick up their nose in the air and think they are better than I am!We all have issues with our kin one way or another.

^ lol amen to that Dawn. my parents aren't really too thrilled about a lot of things about me. My taste of music, my friends, even my college course! It's not "sensibl" they say. Anyways, to get back on topic, I think if David's dad wins, it's bye bye LA. I mean, if can't keep his family together, how the hell can he run a city?

I think sometimes Davis speaks about his family too much. It's not our business is he talking with father or not. I don't care. What matters is music and lirycs- not his privite life. We all know it's hard to live in harmony with the family.

All he was doing was responding to a tweet that someone had sent him. They asked about what he thought about his father running for mayor because there was something on his wikipedia page. From what I've notices, he doesn't really talk about his family very much other than his brother Ben. That's it.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think Ben is the only one he really talks about because he loves Ben. And I think there's nothing wrong about talking about your life, if David wants to talk about his life and his family to his fans, then I suppose it's what makes him comfortable. And I think it's a sign that he trusts us as his fans.

If you love his music, then you are looking into his life. All his songs come from his life, private and public. People ask, and he responds honestly. Pretty refreshing if you ask me.

Agree as well. In my opinion, all song writers gather their inspiration from their lives. They're telling us about their experiences, their views, and what makes them who they are. So, no offense but Malgorzata's post came as a bit ignorant to me.

What I enjoy most about the music is that David writes from such a personal place within himself. He takes all that darkness inside himself that comes from all of the personal shit he goes through and channels it into something to empower the fans. That's what he does. So, I have to second Rei. Malgorzata's comment came off as a little ill informed.

That's what the greats do, they take all their shit from inside and turn it into positive energy that the fans will feed on. When you listen, you can't help but feel the connection and are empowered by it. Especially when you're feeling the heavier songs.

I know that when I'm listening to the heavier music I can help but feel what he's feeling as he sings. I feel the power in his words and I can feel that he's lived what he's singing. He knows what he's talking about.

I read the discussions on the article's talk page, and that info was removed because Ben, their father, nor Lena Yada are relative to David's notability. Apparently, there's a big to do about what should stay and what should go in the article, and that if David has complaints, he should contact Wikipedia himself.

Everytime I look at David's wiki page, I don't see anything Lena, Ben, or David's father anywhere. The only think I really see is a mention of how Ben lives in Israel. That's all I know. If things that aren't supposed to be on there keep popping up, then I agree with Stef. David should take it up with Wikipedia himself.
