Mike Portnoy Loves Dream Theater Remix
Mike Portnoy has thanked a fan for producing a remix of his Twelve-step Suite concept from his time as Dream Theater drummer before quitting in 2010. It features five songs from across five Dream Theater albums. Portnoy based the lyrics to each on his experience with alcoholism. "It's like my life flashing before my eyes!" wrote Portnoy in the YouTube comments to the remix clip. "Will always be very proud of my legacy with the band. I still hope to someday perform this suite in its entirely live on stage, as that was always my intention. Thanks for making this!" Last year Portnoy teased fans by saying that if he hadn't quit Dream Theater, he would have performed the entire Twelve-step Suite in full, according to Prog Magazine. Instead, the band continue to write their 12th studio album with Portnoy's replacement, Mike Mangini. Meanwhile, Portnoy will tour an improvisational show Europe with Neal Morse's band and the Flower Kings, which will conclude with a set of Transatlantic songs.
