Former DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy has issued the following statement:

"Yes, the rumors are true... Sadly my time with AVENGED SEVENFOLD has come to an end... The band has decided to carry on into 2011 without me...

"I had a great time with them throughout 2010, but it was their choice to end the relationship at the end of 2010 as was always the initial plan....

"I had an awesome time on stage with the guys every night and have so many cool memories from the experience with them... I am proud to always be part of the AVENGED SEVENFOLD family and history. I also adore the AVENGED SEVENFOLD fans and totally appreciate the way they welcomed me aboard and were so loving and supportive during my time with the band...thank you!

"As far as my future, I am excited by the endless musical possibilities that lie ahead of me...my love for music runs very deep and my taste is very broad and ecclectic which will give me the chance to explore many different things and collaborate with many great friends and artists I admire and respect...

"Happy holidaze to you all and c-ya in the New Year."

It's like he is sucking the dick of that 2nd-rate hack band...

Sad, but hey! At least Matt, Jeff, and I were at his last show!

CALLED IT!


Well actually no. Since Mike joined for touring, he said he was only going to be playing with A7X in 2010. There was no talk of going further. That's what the internet does. Hell I admit I was apart of that as well. But that's what ASSuming is.

I'm actually quite happy he is lo longer in A7X, I'm still a fan of both sides, but I need Mike playing Prog, not Radio Rock.

I thought this was a goddamit Fonzy moment at first. I thought someone was posting him leaving DT. I had to do a double take to notice it said A7X. *sigh I love Mike but wow this is embarassing.

He should replace Lars in Metallica. Their drumming would improve tenfold and their dickhead quotient would remain the same.
