i don't even understand why they care this much about his personal decision.
It's mike's life, he's just another dude and people change, people move on and people are misinterpreted. He really just needs to be cut some slack and be allowed to get on with what he wants to do with his life

Someone should show this thread to Mike... he seems to be interacting with the wrong crowd right now, there are still plenty of DT fans who are NOT rude and not against him in anyway.

When he left DT, I went and bought tickets for an A7X show Will be fun!

People are very inconsiderate to what he did. He left because he didn't have a break and he was getting very tired of what was going on with DT.
He left with dignity and respect to himself and others. He didn't go around dissing members of DT and making up lies about the others.

Which we know happens sometimes in when members leave.
I hope he keeps on making good music and that he comes to DT again one day. Whether that happens or not only time will tell. Lord willing.

Have a question about The Gospel or prayer request, PM me. Happy to help and God Bless!

Relax. You guys may be more positive about it but you're still doing what everyone else has been doing; jumping the gun.

Read Mike's reply on page 3 and the rebuttle on page 4. I don't see what is so horrible about what is being discussed here. Open letter to Mike Portnoy (w MP response on Pg 4)

Maybe it's the fact that not being a DT fan puts some perspective to things, but I personally think it's cool that someone so "big" has managed to maintain such close relations with his fans over the years. Obviously it's been taking it's toll however...

Mike's worked his ass off to keep his fanbase happy, but needs to realize that they ultimately shouldn't matter - not to him and not to his muse. His music should come from himself, and if the public like it, then great. Otherwise, they can .... off.

The people who matter are the ones you have real relationships with, whose names you know, who will drop everything to help you in a crisis, and who you would do the same for. Not a bunch of frothy mouthed customers who you've shared a brief moment in time with - you on stage, and them flailing around like burning spastics in the pit.


Frankly the one person to come through this debacle with my opinion of them actually heightened IS Mike......his grace under fire and professional demeanor put him head and shoulders above the rest of DT who seemed not only willing to replace him after so many years but actively forced the issue through not allowing him to take a few months off.

As for the so-called "fans".....your analogy and pov are both very much in line with mine.

While raping a bear in Yellowstone and snorting coke out of a freshly-dead baby's skull, I finally felt that I had found my calling and built a time machine out of Iraqi WMDs and LOTS OF HEMP WHOA. Using this time machine I went back in time and shot JFK from outer ....ing space. I am now your god - Jeff

Fans don't like to think of themselves this way, but ultimately, all they are is paying customers. It's good customer service to be nice to them when they buy your stuff, but they have no say, stake, or claim in how you run your business. Nor should they. To be an artist is to serve a higher purpose than mere commercial exchange.

I think that groups like Ulver have got it exactly right in this regard - by making total metamorphosis the one constant in their abstract musical trajectory, they've trained their fans to expect change.
