It's possible there could be some tension between mike and the rest of Dream Theater right now if he has more fun with the ones in his other bands.

Yes I was thinking that too. And why do you keep following me? I'm going to drink some water with flouride in it now

I'm going to have a different opinion against a lot of people on this site, but I just need to get my views out there because this is huge for me.

I'm obviously surprised, but i'm gonna have to tell the truth. After seeing Dream Theater recently twice now, I could kind of see him simply going through the motions. He wasn't really as into it as usual, and he was trying to step it up for Iron Maiden's tour, but he barely got a response from the crowd if you ask me.

I saw him with Avenged Sevenfold this summer, and I gotta tell you, he seemed happier. I've read twitter updates and statuses, and it just seems like he really did have more fun with them. I'll always like Dream Theater more than Avenged Sevenfold, but damn, A7X puts on an unbelievable live performance, especially with him backing them. Believe me, he got a taste of headlining an arena in front of a sold out crowd, and he liked it. I can't blame him one bit. Is Mike Portnoy one of the greatest drummers ever? He's great, but he's not the best. Has he influenced me unbelievably as a drummer? Absolutely.

Dream Theater has always been a great band. But Portnoy is the one who is the soul of the band. Not only is he a talented player, but he is also the one who does the press and planning for the band. If you ask me, Dream Theater won't make it through 2011 without Mike. When I thought of Progressive Nation, I thought Mike Portnoy.

Anyway, that's just my opinion. I'm sure many with disagree with some of what I may believe, but that's my 2 cents.

I wouldnt recomend fluoride but the choice is yours. Maybe mike drank to much fluoride and thats why he quit.
Also im not following you dream theater is one of my favorite bands so im going to comment when I hear Mike Portnoy left the band.

I guess he finally realised how boring they were in concert. They have good songs but in concert you need more ...half the crowd is asleep during their shows


Cheers !

Wow. I really don't understand why he is leaving. Yes, he says his heart isn't with Dream Theater anymore, but why? He has had more breaks than a lot of people in bands get, but wants to go on hiatus? I think this needs a bit more explaining on his part, and possibly the other members. It's just insane to think that after that many years, he's just going to walk away.

Maybe they make him feel more young and angsty.
