A.K.A. John Petrucci.

I've come to share one of the greatest moments in my life as a guitarist. John Petrucci was doing a meet and greet at a local music store, and I surely took advantage! This was earlier in the same day that I witnessed Dream Theater and Iron Maiden front row! (f*cking mind blowing experience btw)

Anyways, I got him to sign 2 posters and my Les Paul pick guard. Here are the pics:

(I'm the dude with the curly long hair and the VR shirt.)








Here's a pic I took from the show, LOL at Petrucci's br00tul face.


Lol, Portnoy being Portnoy


And one of Maiden, the legendary Dave Murray!


K I'm done.

All this time I had no idea that Petrucci was Jesus.

Not a DT fan but I like Petrucci's work on it, and I love Portnoy for helping with A7X.

I never knew he was that big...
I guess that would explain why he doesn't sound as loose on the newer shit.


Why did you have to get so fat John?

Personally, I think Petrucci is way past his prime. Granted, his technique is as good as ever, but he used to be a lot more melodic. I didn't really like Systematic Chaos, save a couple of songs, and I thought Black Clouds and Silver Linings was terrible. That said, I do still love Awake and A Change of Seasons, in spite of finding Dream Theater in its current state dull and uninspiring, and barely even listening to metal anymore.

I want arms like John Petrucci's . but that's awesome how you met him

I'm very jealous.

NOBODY ASKED YOU.



No, I respect your opinion, it's just the JP fanboy inside me doesn't.

I agree. The newer stuff does not compare to the older albums.

I liked BC&SL, but for SC I agree for the most part, except The Ministry of Lost Souls is in my top 3 DT songs.
TS, I envy you. Petrucci seems like a really cool guy and meeting him would be awesome.

The black one? I don't think that's a reverse explorer.
