Russell Crowe is a really big fan of David Draiman and Disturbed's interpretation of Simon & Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence."
You might recall, when the cover was first released, four years ago, Crowe tweeted at the time "every now and then someone comes along and redefines genius."
Well, with the current COVID-19 epidemic, Disturbed released a new music video for the track with a montage of front line and essential workers over the audio track. Crowe saw this and was moved to comment again:
"Perhaps the greatest rock vocal ever." Crowe tweeted. High praise for Disturbed, which they did not take lightly.
"Thank you," the band responded, with a prayer hands emoji.
Perhaps the greatest rock vocal ever.
