Did anyone ese realize that, if Marcojoins the band, it's probably the fairest choice? I mean, didn't the other band members get pissed that Mike had all these side projects? and who was the guitar player in 4 of those? Paul Gilbert. Now DT can have PG's drummer! :lol:

I read that a couple of days ago.

But did Mike really think they would just let everything go and take him back?

Hahaha.

Mike two-timed DT and told DT that he didn't like being on a leash so he broke up with DT to be with A7X. Now A7X dumped him and he wants to get back together with DT.

For serious realsies, did he really think that it was gonna be that easy?

Dream #1: "Hey Paul, it's Mike Portnoy! Merry Christmas! So, what're you doing after this Mr Big thing next year? Racer X? Oh ok, you guys rock, I'll just leave you guys alone!"

Dream #2: "Hey Paul, it's Mike Portnoy! Merry Christmas! So, what're you doing after this Mr Big thing next year? Nothing huh?? Yeah, why don't we get together sometime? No, not a tribute this time, I've been thinking about a kickass Rush sounding album. What do you think?"

ok

I've been around flying-dino too long already! :lol:

Yeah and they would need a kickass vocalist so they would get Jeff Martin. Also someone would have to play those super precise bass licks so they would ask John Alderete to join the band. Then after a while it would be decided that in order to play some of the guitar harmonies live they would have to get Bruce in the band too. And with that lineup fixed and ready to go Portnoy would leave because he'd feel tired and in need of a break.... enter Scott Travis.




(and then I wake up :))

Avenged didn't "dump" him..... He was only contracted to be with them until the end of 2010.....

A friend of mine who's at Berklee said that the drummer in his band got an email from Mangini saying he's postponing all of his classes for 2011. Hmmm...

Mangini Update:
Currently: I have just shipped of my drum tracks for 6 songs for guitarist Isao Fujita (who I did a short tour of Japan with in 2010.) They're my best playing to date :wink: Can't wait for them to be heard. My new 'leg' is coming alone so well but slowly. I have posted some new videos on youtube. One is a solo from October 2010, the last recorded one for me. You can see/hear a huge difference in my groove; it is because my upper leg muscles are now working as they should've all along. Anyway, I will be now revamping the studio before my next sessions start in about two weeks. I have to spend time working with and learning the new Pearl E-Pro Electronic kit & brain. Lots of videos and website ideas are on cue...

Marco Update:
"Acclaimed drummer Marco Minnemann (KREATOR, NECROPHAGIST, EPHEL DUATH, JOE SATRIANI) has laid down the drum tracks for the third album from the Italian alternative/progressive metal band POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER. Entitled "A Sense Of Decay", the CD is tentatively scheduled ror release in May 2011 via My Kingdom Music.

According to a press release, "A Sense Of Decay" will contain 13 songs with a running time of around 60 minutes. The CD will be mixed by Jim Caruana, who has previously worked with JEFF BUCKLEY, BLACK EYED PEAS and BEYONCE, among others. A 15-date European tour with Marco Minnemann on drums will follow the album release."

Cool!

Now I really want to know who it will be!
The only names left in my hat are Thomas Lang and Virgil Donati.
