Wow, Derek Roddy auditioned? Skilled drummer, true, but I really don´t see his style falling in line with DT´s.. I´d love to hear that audition tho. :D

Marco and Thomas Lang really looked like they were at home playing those tunes, but that Peter Wildoer might be a wild card. He´s the only one of the bunch who doesn´t play music for a living, he´s a math teacher and therefore he would be more than well available without a million side projects going on. :)

Math teacher? wow;

But I checked his website, and that doesn't look much of a math teacher for me... :lol:

haha, I know who the drummer is, but I can't tell

however, as a hint, the following drummers didn't give an OK to the footage of them being broad-casted over TV (which means, they aren't the drummer, otherwise they wouldn't take legal actions now):
Marco Minnemann
Virgil Donati
Thomas Lang

also, the whole thing got turned into a big money making machine... other bands just replace their member and make a press release,
Dream Theater turns it into a 3 part TV reality show which also will be sold on DVD

I'm also not sure if I can take the ridiculousness of the dramatization of everything in that trailer... well, I'll surely be watching it still

Everything points to Mangini. Someone also claims to have seen him walking into the studio they were recording at.

where did you get that info from? They're in the trailer, so im sure theyl be in the final video. If theres one thing i know about DT, its that theyre a well oiled business machine, from day one, before the auditions, everyone drummer will have had to sign a release for the band to use the footage. This was ALWAYS about making a DVD...

im fucking disappointed....

Marco mentioned that he didn't get the chance to approve of the footage being shown on TV on his facebook. Regarding Virgil & Thomas, it's hearsay. They're all supposed to keep things a secret, so there's no printed proof that I can link you to.

However, they all will be in the documentary. Putting it on national US TV brings more money than some small lawsuit costs...
All drummers probably signed something that the footage of them gets put on a DVD etc. and the deal with broadcasting it on TV might came afterwards. They maybe didn't have the time to wait for an OK by all the drummers and agreed on the TV deal no matter what.

got the chance to see the trailer, and found it very interesting.

Too bad it turned out to be a "soap-opera" but I bet all DT fans will run to the stores to buy the DVD. I find it a bit awkward, but interesting anyway, to see the criteria they used to pick the drummer and how it all turns out.

Portnoy shoes are some pretty big gap to fill in DT.

I'm not even a Dream Theater fan and I loved that.
Can't wait to see the other drummers.

Mangini is such a great character, he´d be entertaining to watch even if he was only playing a rock beat in 4/4. Hope the other episodes are as entertaining!

Too bad the first ~10 minutes were cheesy as hell. It was like watching the Idol auditions with all the oh-so-sad background stories. :D

^^yes I think so too, but I expected the whole thing to be like that, but then, thank god, it wasn't
however, the final episode will surely be soap operatic again, I'm sure
