      I can understand him maybe being frustrated with a crew that may be inexperienced, but it just comes off like he is the biggest tool. If you are a pro act like pro.

        Fawning, fawning, excuses, not-quite-so-fawning, more drivel, etc.

            who does he think he is buddy rich???................kinda made an ass of himself there. Probably a backline kit.....If it were mine, I would have picked up the cymbal stand and hit him over the head with it.

              if had to play that prog snooze fest night after night I'd throw stuff too; maybe all he could hear was the jazzy keys....horrors!



              did they not travel with their own sound guys? The techs seem....local. You get what you (don't) pay for IME.

                The rules might be slightly different in Manilla.

                  Heh heh - his comment on it involves the mounting frustrations of the tour and playing in far off locations (like Russia and Manilla) and not being able to tour with their gear. But frustrations or not, that was pretty weak on Portnoy's part.



                  And I really like Portnoy. I just think he needs a vacation if this happens.

                    he said on his site that he blew up because the snare mic fell off, and the tech came and took it and left the stage. lol, hate to see what would happen if something worse happened. I mean come on...its manilla.......3rd world country, and I would imagine "good" gear is hard to come by.....

                      C'mon guys it's the Phillipines, not Somalia.



                      I'm pretty sure they can find an extra SM57 somewhere in the city...









                      I think Mikey just may be a bit burned out tinged with a bit of regret over his recent career choices.



                      Then again... maybe not. I don't follow Portnoy on a regular basis.

                          I think he'd be a perfect fit with The Ataris.

                            This video is just so embarrassing, though.... he's kind of a "drum ambassador" at this point, and watching him toss gear is... well, Mike, that was a dick move. Just say you're sorry and move on, please...

                              If I may play devils advocate... They had hours to do their jobs before the show. Issue after issue would piss me off too.. Honestly he should have trashed the kit and destroyed the stage like a rock star should.. Whats all this professional talk.. Set the **************** on fire..
