That's right pit, I am meeting the god of shred, the Petruccinator, in Manchester CT today. We will talk guitar, we will love one another, and become best friends, and then he'll tell me he wants me to join Dream Theater, and I will say yes, and learn his secret ways.

Anyway, to prevent this from being a cool story bro, or a blog post, Im posting the address here for anybody in the CT area, or even the Mass area, who wants in.

Here's the info:

You lucky son of a bitch :| Make sure to have a photo with him and post it on UG.

And if your face doesn't melt, tell us how good he is in person

See what you mean. I'm not crazy about Dream Theater, but you can't deny that Petrucci is God.

JP isn't so much a musician as he is a force of nature, in that you cannot stop him, you cannot look away, and he'll kick you in the balls and you will thank him that you got to smell his feet, his delicious feet.

For he just shredded your balls with said feet.


And made it sound like a G3, by himself, without 2 other guitarists.

maybe it was where i was stood at the time, but the whole ensemble sounded horrible, the mix was awful (99% sure that wouldn't have been their fault) and all the band just seemed to be sloppy because of that one factor. And i don't find his style to that enjoyable, it's like listening to free form jazz, it's a forced thing with a gun against my head.

sorta been there, and didn't go. I had the chance to go meet the drummer of some band, can't remember who all i remember is my mate claiming they were huge. I didn't go, couldn't be assed.

JP is like the Chuck Norris of metal. TS, if you want to have a jam with him, becareful. others who have tried have died after the first two seconds JP played the first note.
#27
I'm jealous too ... Ah well hopefully I can score a meeting or something if he goes out before the show in December.

During your bonding experience you should ask him to write a song that's under 9 minutes.


He'll probably just play on old one twice as fast.

Good tale, other son of my mother
But that's cool, I don't listen to Dream Theater much but what I've heard is really cool, and his guitar on the things I've heard is really really cool. Also see if you can get him to make a UG account and have some way to prove that it's the actual JP and not some faker. That would be even cooler.

When I saw Manchester, I was so excited! Then I saw Connecticut

In other news, I went to see DT in June and saw their tourbus just as they were getting back in But I caught JP's pick at the end, so it's all gravy.
hello

I'm pretty damn ****ing jealous. If I have one hero in Metal, it's John Petrucci (and Mikael Akerfeldt, but JP wins the guitar player category). If I were to meet him, I'd be tempted to ask him if he's really able to shred the sun into a forced eclipse, but I'd probably just ask for a pic with me while holding a UG banner.

Ask them to sign your guitar! The resell value will be huge after that.
