A7X drummer for Uproar tour

It's gonna be Mike Portnoy. Uproar starts after the Maiden tour ends. Sounds like he and the A7X guys are good friends now, wouldn't be suprised if he doesn't join the band permanently from what I am hearing.

~blinks~ That's really, really surreal. I wonder what his setup will look like?

It is official now or is it unofficial right now?

Not doubting you one bit, it's just that I'm on MP's forum a lot and I haven't seen the announcement yet.

Not me. I mean, yeah, A7X isn't my cup of tea, but I think that it's really cool of him to help them out. He gets to play something different just for kicks, and does a bit to bridge the gap between metalheads and... whatever A7X fans consider themselves / are. It's nice to see that he's willing to put himself out there like this even if he gets flak for it.

Portnoy has all kinds of side projects for shits and giggles. I don't know about the rest of the metalheads, but I really don't want that bridge to get made. haha

Fair enough, and I kind of figured you might think that as I was typing it out. I've always been a "reach out" kind of person. Like, if people are willing to give different music a chance, I'm not going to be an asshole. If a handful of kids find Dream Theatre through Portnoy because of this and get exposed to good music, then I'm happy.

I don't think the children that listen to A7X will do much with Portnoy's name aside from some them knowing them as the guy who filled in for a while. That's just my opinion though, I know there may be some outliars and if they decide to stop listening to shitty music because Mike Portnoy played with a shitty band, more power to them.
