Mike Portnoy Open to Dream Theater Reunion, But Wouldn't Bet on It
Drum master Mike Portnoy recently discussed the possibility of returning to Dream Theater ranks, expressing an open stance, but without getting much hopes up.

"If I was a betting man, I wouldn't put money on it," he told Metal Hammer. "And that's not my doing. I never say never and haven't closed any doors.

"I'm a very nostalgic person; I forgive and forget very easily," Mike added (via Blabbermouth), "but I think the guys [in Dream Theater] have made it very clear they have no interest in looking backwards.

"Those guys were a huge part of my life for a very long time, so I'm open to anything, anytime. I guess the ball's in their court. We shall see."

Although Portnoy's DT departure might seem like a fresh event, it's been four years since he focking left the band in 2010. Mike has since been replaced by Mike Mangini.
