DEVILDRIVER bassist Jon Miller spoke to ILikeMusic when the band were in Wolverhampton on their recent UK tour and told them he felt an appreciation of the heavier side of music was simply something you were born with.
“I think it’s something that’s either in your blood or it’s not, it’s as simple as that,” he stated, going on to discuss the moment he realized that being a musician was his calling, “I went to see Faith No More, Guns N’ Roses and Metallica in 1992 when I was 12 years old. I went to go see them at Foxborough Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Then I was like “oh shit, that’s what I wanna do!”
Miller and the guys had a whale of a time in the UK, with the shows being “…the best UK shows that we’ve done so far. I think the band is at its biggest point right now in the UK. We’re definitely playing in front of the most kids that we’ve ever played in front of in the United Kingdom. I think the Download festival helped a lot. We did it in 2006, twice in 2007 and then we did main stage in 2009 and I think that really stepped up the profile for the band as far as the UK goes. Download’s a really good festival, and I really wish that there were more festivals like that in America.“
