The info at the end of the story about the project Sherinian is doing with Hughes,Bonham and Bonamassa was more exciting to me than anything he had to say about Portnoy.

By the way, does anyone know if DT got to play / record the 5th cover of a classic album, so that they may yet release it?

Some people have changed some of Dream Theater wiki entries with childish remarks. Confused

Even attacking the members photos with abusive names under their pictures.

Seems to be corrected now by wiki.

Life is full of changes - 25 years was a great run, and MP has done some outstanding work with other bands and projects. DT will enter a new phase, hopefully an exciting one, and MP will continue to do outstanding work wherever his creative heart may lead him.

My son told me about this, o F#####G S###T, this is something like when PG leave Genesis or when Waters left PF. Well, at least I enjoyed the band a lot and I saw them with my two sons in Orlando.

This is sad news...

I saw them very recently in Cleveland.  They were excellent as they always are.  There are more to DT than any one, they are the sum of their parts.

Mike Portnoy is fantastic.  If he wants to do something different that is is priviledge.  I am confident that DT will go on, and things will be intact.  There is no way that a group of musicians with the amount of talent and ability as all members of DT possess will they dare go wrong in any situation.  Other groups have been making changes for millenia with success...although I will miss this combo...I will follow them anywhere for I know they will produce good music.

not bad but i'd prefer a new platypus album
With the thousand projects and albums that Derek has... I prefer a nice keyboard less Jelly Jam than a Platypus album... but I love that project. It's great to be fan of a band with so active members...

Don't think I care at all about this. Never really thought of DT as anything more than a bridge between Prog and Metal and I like both anyway. Kamelot cream them in the song stakes in my humble opinion. I think that Portnoy will fare the better of the two though as he is a workhorse and that I admire. It's interesting that he "had" to leave though!!

Woow, there's one thing I would never have seen coming... It'd be weird, with Mike not in the drummer's seat anymore. And I've never got the chance to see them live all togetherUnhappy

I understand the situation

I do not believe that most people know what they will do tommorow. Understand me that we live to have a better place  to EVOLVE.
                               Most people like to EVOLE upwards while some to EVOLE downwards.
                  Now what is up and what is dow.   And what  is right and what is wrong.
                                                  For me being handiccaped all my life, there's no such thing as a sure thing.
But I fight for what is right. Now I've been very lucky to see in 1965 some heavy metal predecessor  and in the time of POP they we're some more agressive guitarist.

My point is simple we or they think it's better to move on. So we do. There is nothing wrong  when we feel it wrong to go that way instead of  this way.

Long live music no matter what It's the only way of releasing  mental pressure

I have not seen this posted anywhere, so sorry if it has been. This is the transcript of Mike's interview with Eddie Trunk on NY Q104.3 "Friday Night Rocks" show on Sept 10, 2010.
 
 
Thanks for this link bro. I convince myself each time more that Portnoy did planned the break, what I think he didn't planned was that the rest of the guys would be so decided to go forward even without him... I'm sure he thought it was a good time to lay down the law because of James new album and all the other projects, but he faced that the rest of the members are far of "tired" or "uncharged".
 
Now, about that interview, I missled that or did Mike mentioned that Myung is working on a Jelly Jam album...? I would love to have a new album of them... someone has some info about it... ?
Your welcome........I read the same about Myung...he has either already released it or will soon...I am looking for it now.
 
EDIT: I just read that Ty Tabor of Kings X said they are working on a new album as of May 5th...so it must be close to being released...

He never said they were a step up, he just said he needed a break from DT and that the musical break that other musical outings gave him helped him feel inspired to come back to DT.  I totally get it.
