  • OT: Portnoy tries to come crawling back to DT

    Ex-DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy has revealed that he made a recent attempt to rejoin his former bandmates but was rebuffed by the group he formed and led for 25 years. Writing on his official forum, Portnoy states, "Just for the record, this is indeed true..

    "Fairly recently, I reached out to the guys to try and make amends and offered to reconcile for the sake of having peace back in our lives

        Exactly. Without Portnoy, they are worthless. It's like Rush without Neil Peart.

            I took his comment to mean the whole band should break up because they suck with or without Portnoy. I'd agree. Dream Theater is boring and I really couldn't care less about them. However, the other members do deserve some credit and respect for not taking the douche back.

              I always thought they were a Rush wanna-be band. Never was much of a fan.

                I'm glad they didn't let him back in. Good going JP, JLB, JR and maybe that Chinese dude that follows them around everywhere.

                  It has always seemed a little strange that Portnoy would "quit" Dream Theater and be so public about it.

                  I'll bet that he and the band never planned to split up... It was all a publicity stunt to get people talking about Dream Theater. Even though Portnoy toured with A7X, Dream Theater was pretty much idle this year anyway.

                  Those prog rock/metal guys are such drama queens...

                    Epic fail by Portnoy. I'm so glad they didn't take him back. I'm excited to see what DT will do with a new drummer and without Portnoy in the diver's seat.


                    +1, Portnoy was trying to turn DT into a heavy metal band, and it simply isn't working with that singer's voice. His singing was much better on Score, compared to Budokan. DT needs to go back to being progressive. A Change of Seasons was my favorite. And the title track on Octavarium.

                        LOL, the first thing I thought when reading this was that Mike is just trying to make himself look better to his "fans". He has always seemed to love to hear himself talk, or in this case type. GOod on the DT guys for standing their ground.

                        Exactly. Without Portnoy, they are worthless. It's like Rush without Neil Peart.


                        I'm pretty sure DT could stand to branch out and get back to being interesting without Portnoy and the drivers seat. The last 5 years or so of Dream Theater have been the relationship equivalent of "seeing other people" before finally realizing that they just don't give a **************** anymore and ending it. They completely lost their musical identity when they started ripping off Muse (great band though) and ramped up the self plagiarism until they became a parody of themselves. Petrucci lyrics have not helped ANYONE either.

                          Actually I don't mind the metal direction. I think that has as much to do with Petrucci as Portnoy. He just seems to be into playing the brutz right now. I'm cool with that. Actually my favorite DT album is Systematic Chaos. I'd like to see more prog along with the brutz though. And less cheesy crap like Wither and The Best of Times.

                          Actually the thing I'm most excited about with Portnoy gone is we won't have to bear his horrible grunting backup vocals anymore .

                            Oh, God. I love Petrucci. He's my favorite guitar player. But he's REALLY got to stop writing lyrics. I don't know who's going to take over the lyric duties, but they should even farm them out if they have to. A Nightmare to Remember and Count of Tuscany are some of the worst lyrics EVER!!
