so this will really be 3 episodes long?
The first one is with Mangini only... the other drummers will get some minutes then, apparently

but it's some cool stuff
the actual episode was much less dramatic/soap opera-esque than the trailer suggested, thank god

only problem is that they don't tell the story why MP left correctly, but it's alright

Thanks very much for posting that. Enjoyed watching it and am definitely cheering for Mike to take the throne at this point.

I found the episode to be much more enjoyable than the preview trailer they made for sure. Mike's energy and sincerety was great, and obviously he has the chops. I was glad to see JP and the rest of the guys giving him some positive critiscism as well instead of just playing and going "thanks well be in touch".

Been missing this DT thing lately...

I liked the video though, great to see all the drummers involved and how they're personalities are.
From just this vid im definitely leaning towards mike

thanks for posting that, I had to watch it as when I put it in HD it wouldn't let me pause . It was interesting to say the least, looks like 6 minutes or so per drummer?

I'm guessing 4 episodes of 20 minutes each, which gives us 10 minutes per drummer + the introduction. And as the typical DT fan should notice: 4 episodes, 20 minutes; 4/20 is Portnoy's date of birth. ()

We'll there's a difference between being a fan and a stalker..

Really though, I thought there were 3 episodes though instead of 4? Did I read that wrong somewhere?

I really don't think they planned it for his bday. Maybe it was just something that happened.. or maybe they're all just huge stoners now to cope with the heartbreak that JP was talking about. Who knows

Well, I'm gonna have to take back some of the things I said about them after the first time I watched the trailer. This IS way more enjoyable than I ever expected, and it feels genuine. Props to DT

On the other hand... This has to be said: Dream Theater now djents. Wtf JP's tone

I still don't understand, why Petrucci is talking about the memories with Mike and he says "we love Mike and didn't expect this to happen." Why don't they take him back then? Because, he asked to come back.

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

Maybe 'cause Mike didn't want to come back by heart, but for the sake of fans whining.

Not to retread old ground but I'd say the issue is very complicated and could be likened to the feeling you get when someone leaves you and then comes back later. You don't shake off that feeling of abandonment easily.

Of course, the rest of DT may have thought (like many of the fans) that this whole thing presented an opportunity to revitalize the band and move forward, rather than back.

To be honest, I was kinda thinking that Petrucci was using the AxeFX and I wasn't really liking his tone much. I'd figure he probably just uses it for practice so he doesn't have to mess with his loud as f*ck Mark's.

I have no idea, but his tone was amazing on both Prog Nation and when they opened for Iron Maiden.

Well he wasn't using Axe-FX back then. I bet he ain't using it for the record either.

I really don't believe that a man like Petrucci couldn't get a good sound out of a box I can get a good sound out of.

Yeah, but still forgive and forget you know? There must be more to it then is mentioned, because I don't think they would just completely blow him off for leaving or at least I think they wouldn't (but I could be wrong).

Watching now - initial thoughts are that I don't care too much WHO gets the chair as long as they gel with the rest of the guys and give DT a much-needed kick up the arse........also impressed with the size of JP's freakin' arms

Edit: Mike's energy is fabulous, and JP's tone is a step in the right direction for me at least !

Its not that simple, when a band has been together for a long time and someone leaves it is huge. I have been in similar scenarios (ableit not nearly as long, obviously) and the reaction was akin to, .... em. You can't ever trust them again after that point, whose to say they won't just pack in and take off, again.

A little quick googling only shows lots of rumors. Judging from his rack pics and from what most of the gossip points to is that He's just using it in his "B" Rig for practice, which would explain only having the two Marks as opposed to the 3 he has in his main rig.

I thought this drama was getting ridiculous, but that video ended up being really interesting, really looking forward to the next two clips. The only thing that bugged me a little was that giving out DT hats to some of the best drummers in the world seems a wee bit condescending. I'm guessing I'm reading too much into it, but caught my eye nevertheless...
