At least Sony kept Davis from actually singing on it, he was suppose to sing for Lestat. I distinctly remember the book describing Lestat's voice as melodious, something Johnathan Davis's voice is not.
Oh no, I meant the soundtrack. OK, looking at the track listing I probably meant just a few of the tracks.
I love David Draimen's voice and Disturbed. Disturbed's last album, just released last year, was a Billboard #1 (3rd consecutive album of theirs, only the 5th rock band ever to do that), and did go platinum.
So they're still around. Papa Roach was on the 1st Cruefest tour, which was a huge success last summer. There's at least a couple who are still around.
Anne Rice said that she envisioned Rutger Hauer as playing Lestat, and his music sounding like The Rolling Stones. Given her descriptions in the books, I could see the Stones thing, but I could never see Rutger Hauer as Lestat.
