Let’s do the math ..Dream Theater is a typical musicians’ band…technical and overrated..What, 1 radio hit in 25 years??? Well, Avenged SevenFold is like #1 right now all over the world..of course I would jump ship too….(chuck)
Drummer Mike Portnoy of progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER has released the following statement:
“I am about to write something I never imagined I’d ever write.
“After 25 years, I have decided to leave DREAM THEATER… the band I founded, led and truly loved for a quarter of a century.
“To many people this will come as a complete shock, and will also likely be misunderstood by some, but please believe me that it is not a hasty decision…it is something I have struggled with for the last year or so….
“After having had such amazing experiences playing with HAIL!, TRANSATLANTIC and AVENGED SEVENFOLD this past year, I have sadly come to the conclusion that I have recently had more fun and better personal relations with these other projects than I have for a while now in DREAM THEATER.
“Please don’t misinterpret me, I love the DREAM THEATER guys dearly and have a long history, friendship and bond that runs incredibly deep with them… it’s just that I think we are in serious need of a little break.
