Mike Portnoy talks about 9/11

Mike Portnoy is a man of many talents. He plays drums, he plays.. Well, that’s it, really. So maybe I’m exaggerating, but still, check out what he has to say about September 11. You know, cause September 11 is right around the corner, and it will be its 10th anniversary, so we just have to hear what ever goddamn musician has to say about that tragedy.

“Dream Theater was working in NYC at the time mixing our album ‘Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence’ and I would’ve been driving in that afternoon for our session. But as the events of the morning unfolded, I found myself glued to the TV in disbelief as to what I was witnessing. It was all too surreal. I felt like I was watching a Will Smith Hollywood film. It couldn’t possibly be really happening.

Woah, racist alert. So no matter what, if a building is up in flames, a black man has to be behind it, even if that black man happens to be an A-list movie star. Wow. I am speechless, Mike. Really?

I keed, I keed, he’s obviously referencing either ‘Independence Day,’ a movie about spaceships destroying major cities (which ironically is more believable than some of the 9/11 conspiracies, but let’s not go there… yet), or ‘Wild Wild West,’ such a huge bomb of a movie, it could literally take a few buildings down.

On the reals though, I know 9/11 is nothing to laugh at, but neither is South Park. Yet millions of people laugh at that crap show all the time…

But seriously,  I hope I haven’t offended anyone. We get a lot of traffic from New York so, in case you were offended, I sincerely apologize on behalf of my sober self.
