KORN, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, DISTURBED Singers Talk Halloween Plans

The Pulse of Radio reports: Wednesday (October 31) is Halloween, one of the biggest and most increasingly popular holidays on the calendar. The day is normally filled with costumes, parties, haunted houses, horror movies, trick-or-treating and all kinds of spooky and entertaining events and activities, and we asked several of our favorite musicians how they'll be spending the day:

DISTURBED's David Draiman has one objective in mind for the holiday: "Gonna go somewhere with a gorgeous lady friend of mine, and get her to wear her wonderful costume, and get me to take off her wonderful costume, and that's pretty much my intention for the night (laughs). I'm gonna probably go somewhere and drink a bunch of things I shouldn't, and feel entirely too horrible about it the next day and tell myself I'm never gonna do it again, and like always, I've never been a good liar."

KORN frontman Jonathan Davis is a family man these days and plans to make the trick-or-treating rounds with his younger sons, Pirate and Zeppelin: "I think Pirate's gonna be a spider, and I'm not sure, I think Zep's gonna be a little mummy. I'm not sure yet. But we can't wait. We're gonna go trick or treating and just have a good time. I don't know what I'm gonna be yet. We all get in the spirit at the house, we all dress up."

SYSTEM OF A DOWN singer Serj Tankian told The Pulse of Radio the best idea for a costume we've heard in a long time: "My favorite Halloween costume is a lamp. I like just wearing this long, long thing and having, like, a shade on my head and going to the corner of the room and having this light on my head, and just standing there not talking to anyone. And if someone comes up to me and says, 'Hey, Serj, how are you doing?' I always ask them, 'Do you talk to lamps often?' And if they say yes, then I say, 'Then you need help,' and if they say no, then I say, 'Don't talk to me then.' No, I'm just kidding. I've wanted to do that for years, but I've never done it."

Halloween is not as big a deal in South Africa as it is here, but that didn't stop South African natives SEETHER from getting into the spirit, as frontman Shaun Morgan told The Pulse of Radio: "About two years ago, I put on a fat suit, biker chick suit (laughs). Dale (Stewart, bassist) actually was, I think, the worst part about it. Dale was wearing the cheerleader outfit with just enough belly revealed, and Johnny (Humphrey, drummer) played in a fat suit. So that was kind of cool. I think that might have been the first time I remember actually dressing up for Halloween."
