In the Name of God, Mike Portnoy. No need to have a Panic Attack. You're just trying to Pull them Under because you've been Forsaken.

It's stupid. It's just a case of Mike Portnoy trying to leave in a manner he thought was edgy or whatever, then whining when Dream Theater didn't all fall apart.

Opinions on Portnoy have really gone down since he left.

tell me about it, have you heard Adrenaline Mob, those musicians should have come up with something a little better than that :/ then you get DT who come out with IMO their best album since Octavarium. Seems to me he was holding them back :/

Wait, didn't he leave DT?

It's not as though it's unwarranted though, pretty much every week there's a story about Portnoy whining about Dream Theater this and that. He claims he wanted to leave quietly, but he's made such a fuss about it that it's ridiculous.

I wouldn't let him back in either.

This. I give no fucks about Dream Theater.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

Not to be that guy, but the thread title is directly related to Dream Theater. Why come into a thread about dream theater and say "I do not care for Dream Theater"?

Anyway just listened to Portnoy's new band for the first time.
If I were in that band I'd probably be trying my hardest to hold onto anything related to my old, better band too.

Goddamn it Mike, why? Are you really that butthurt about the new Dream Theater album being 100x better than the Adrenaline Mob EP?



100x i dont think thats nearly enough, AM EP is pretty poor, ADTOE is fantastic

Look, Mike, I like you. I like your drumming. You're one of my favourite drummers, and as bummed as I was when you left, hey, I was happy for you that you were able to muster the courage to step away from a comfortable life in a successful band you've been in for decades because you wanted a change of pace. I can respect that. And frankly, I thought the production on the new album was muffled without you co-producing.

But dammit man, you left Dream Theater, they didn't kick you out. You instigated it, and you didn't suggest the name, your dad did. There's no basis for either claim as far as I can see. Come down gracefully man, please. Hopefully the guys in DT will eventually bring you back in if you do, and we can all be happy again.

But come on man. This is just in poor taste.

Dream Theater seems like such a shitty band to be in. I know James hardly gets any of his lyrics approved.

they did an interview a while back saying why this is.

when lyrics are brought in they have to have a rough melodic form, and fit the structure and rhythms, which is why Myung only wrote lyrics to one song. i think

That's because James is to Dream Theater as Ringo is to The Beatles.

Rush is the exception that proves the rule. To everything. They're living proof that there is a god - otherwise Geddy Lee would be impossible. And also that cool, well-dressed prog bands cannot exist in numbers larger than three, otherwise they'd implode any venues they performed at.

Vocals, piano, piano with feet, and bass, all at once!

I can't say i care about DT but this guys is starting to end up like Dave Mustaine, in 20 years he'll still be whining and bitching about the "Band that threw me out for no reason". Both of them need to shut the f*ck up about it already, the only difference is that Dave's band is actually going somewhere which only gives him less of a reason to bitch.

I'm confused as to how he thinks he has any basis for this at all. Everybody and their grandma knows that he chose to leave when the rest of them didn't want to take a break.

Portnoy's just making more of a fool out of himself.

If it's true, I think Mike will lose. Plenty of other people have been kicked out of bands before. I think he needs a little bit more substance to his lawsuit.
