Yep. He fell out with Masvidal and Reinert in '93 because they wanted to take the band in the jazz/metal direction that ended up with Focus, while he wanted to carry on with his ideas - especially given that Masvidal and Reinert had just been hired as session guys, really. "The Philosopher" was just a cheap shot at Masvidal for trying to take over creative direction in the band.
