How John Petrucci learns a new song

Always suspected John of being a robot from another planet, this video just proves my theory. Here’s Satriani’s skills being stolen by John while playing live…


Foo Fighters win the right to be featured on this website

Foo Fighters

Because they won a “metal” Grammy. A lot of people got super pissed off about this, because the category they won is called hard rock / metal.

To explain: Dear metalheads, hard rock / metal means hard rock OR metal. Not hard rock and metal.

Either way, blame the people at Grammy’s who lumped bands like Dream Theater, Mastodon, Megadeth with Sum 41 and Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl did rock out a Slayer shirt (as seen above) so that makes it completely okay, right?

The thing I only care about is finding out if Skrillex won the best singer Grammy <3


Dream Theater drummer wanted to meet Jesus

After yesterday’s hilarious interview with Dave Mustaine, today I got to read another funny interview. This time with Dream Theater.

Check this out…

“Interviewer: Noting your current album is called A Dramatic Turn Of Events, what dramatic historical event would you like to have witnessed?
Mike Mangini: One dramatic historical event that I would have liked to witness was Jesus walking on water to the boat full of apostles. That ranks high on my list of “jaw-dropping” events.

Haha, really? Well if we’re talking fiction here, why not witness the chase from Terminator 2? Or how about when Neo was woken up from the matrix in the first movie? Or how about being in the room when Joker was interrogated by Batman in TDK? Surely those are all awesome moments, far more impressive than when some dude walked on water.

I hope Mike was just trolling.


Mike Portnoy trolls the interwebz

A troll guy posted on some Dream Theater forums about a certain DT song (from their latest album) which is strikingly similar to a song from Christian band Red. Sorry, I stopped paying attention the second I heard the word ‘Chrsitian.’

You can judge for yourself here:

Red – Feed The Machine

Dream Theater – Build Me, Break Me Down

Geez, I wonder if Mike Portnoy had anything to say on the matter…

Check out the first song on JP ‘s fav album of the year…. WOW, the arrangement and orchestration sounds awfully familiar!! Surely it must be an intentional “nugget” for the fans… It couldn’t possibly be blatant formula plagiarism now could it…??

I just have to laugh…. : )

Read full post here.

Portnoy has class, yo. Very subtle forum diss. Major troll points for this one, Mikey.


Andy McKee to play with Dream Theater

This is a bit old news, but here it goes anyway. According to Dreamtheater.net, the fantastic guitar player that Andy McKee is will be joining Dream Theater on stage during their American leg of the tour.

Dream Theater is excited to announce a unique treat for our fans! During the December leg of our current world tour, spectacular acoustic finger style guitarist Andy McKee will be our special guest for the San Diego and Anaheim shows in California, the Mesa Arizona show, and three shows in Mexico: Monterrey, Guadalajara, and Mexico City.

…lucky bastards… And I’m not going to make it any clearer whether I’m referring to concert goers or Dream Theater
