    Dream Theaters Loss

    Hi everyone,

    I just learned that Dream Theater lost one of the best drummers Mike Portnoy... It is a sad day for prog rock but could shed new light on the band. Anyone know new drummers in line to try and fill the spot of Portnoy. Or if you just wanna throw down your opinion, go for it.

    Have kind of lost track of DT for a few years, but that news is a bit out of the blue. It'll be interesting to see what happens next.

    And Portnoy was not only their drummer. He was a very big part of the music writing. So the end of DT i guess.

    Portnoy wanted to leave DT, the band that went throw him away after recordings, he wanted to come back to DT, they said no.
    Is his fault only. :-)
    They're doin' just fine all summer of 2012 performing live.
