Mike replaces Mike?

Since two days ago, rumor has it that Mike Mangini is the new drummer for Dream Theater, but the band hasn’t confirmed it yet. The man packs quite a punch and has played some pretty significant gigs (Steve Vai, Annihilator, to mention but a few), but… I can’t imagine who, besides die-hard “take DT albums to bed and make sweet sweet love to them” fans, is interested in this anymore.

I mean, come on, all this bitchy drama queen “we know the drummer but won’t tell” attitude has long since overstayed its welcome. Dream Theater, Charlie Sheen you’re not.
