I think the music and lyrics he has written for his AA recovery is outstanding.

The songs alone (with the exception of Repentance which I didn't like overly much) are great, but when you listen to them all and hear little excerpts from each song into the others it really ties the whole thing together and today that just clicked for me and I went 'wow, that's incredible'

I really wish I could write lyrics and music like he does.

Mike Portnoy is just an incredible musician!
I love his music, he plays drums perfectly, i think he s a kind of signature for dream theater. He has a great style!
Good thread dude!

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
