Post Scott Travis with Dream Theater?!
Dream Theater anounced on ther website that they will be headling the High Voltage festival in Victoria Park, London together with Judas Priest in july 2011. Furthermore they announced that they will start recording their next album in january!

I thought: wait...Dream Theater already have a new drummer?! And theyre playing with Priest?!

And then it just clicked! Priest is doing their farewill tour and Dream Theater need a new drummer...could it be that Scott is the new drummer for Dream Theater?

I mean scott is going to need a new band after priest and he is one of the few people who would be able to play that stuff.

Your thoughts?

Ken told us that Scott doesn't really like Dream Theater's music and MP's playing.

PLUS I don't think Scott has the technical skills to play those DT songs.

I'm sure Scott has the technique, just not his style of playing. I mean I know Scott seems like just the double bass kinda guy but I'm sure he can pull off those odd timed whatever if he wanted to.

I bet he could learn it. I just don't think he could compose something like that

Yep..definitely doesn't care for it.

He calls it Calculator Rock....since he heard Portnoy telling a fan (in jest or not is unknown) that they used a calculator to figure out the correct time signature in a section of a song.

Scott is way to heavy for DT.

I don't know you guys...I think it'd be pretty sweet to hear Scott pull this song off!

As re-tweeted by Jordan Rudess, the rumor is that Marco Minneman is the new skinsman for DT.

Yup. Our friend Marco.


What's funny is now Mike is out of AX7....saw that one coming a mile away. Those guys aren't going to be too keen on a control freak in THEIR band.

I see, so it really IS Marco
There have been all kinds of rumors on the Petrucci Forums, probably because Jordan Rudess did that internet stream improv show with Marco on drums.

I think Marco fits perfectly in any situation: He plays the usual "I studied music"-stuff like funk & jazz etc. but he also plays extreme metal, e.g. with Necrophagist...

Apart from Scott's word, via Ken, apparently.

Me neither, but the fact is that Marco is just about to enter the studio with Psyaxis. I´m still saying the new DT drummer is Thomas Lang(even tho I´d prefer Marco!) :)
