If Mangini didn't get it there is no justice.

HEY...!! ... That's one of the things I love about him

But, really, as much as I love Mangini (and Minnemann as well), I don't really mind who they've already chosen. I have faith in these guys, and I'm pretty sure they've made the right choice!

Pretty sure it's Donati, unless they're doing tricky editing. The drummer they show before he makes the comment is Donati (look at the grip)

Clearly gotta be tricky editing. Best drummer comment is about Mangini and they're comparing his audition to the other guys'!!!

I'm guessing people calling Portnoy annoying or egotistical or whatever haven't spent any time with him. While I can't say I'm personal friends with him, over the years I've gotten to hang with him a bit and he's never been anything but cool and welcoming.

I've told the story before here, I believe, but after the first Roseland show on the SFAM tour, I hung out by the busses for literally a good 2-3 hours, waiting for Petrucci to come back to sign stuff. It was close to 2am and it was just Mike and I standing by the bus, all the fans had left. Mike said he was turning in for the night, asked if I was all set with a ride and thanked me for hangin' out.

I still wonder what he would have done if I told him I needed a ride.

And about Mangini being corny and irritating...

The dude is obviously stoked at the opportunity ahead of him. My buddy took private lessons with him at Berklee for a couple semesters and they still catch eachother around Boston occasionally. I've heard some good stories over the past few years....for instance, Mangini has shown up to a few double-bass labs still reekin' of booze from the night before a few times, "Oh Jay, I've gotta hang-ova somethin' bad!", then continues to sit down and tear it up like nothin!

You only get to that level of musicianship by absolutely loving each note/hit ya play. Mangini was obviously more than ready to put every bit of hisself into DT, which I think is awesome.

And I also that that Angra dude's playing style was REALLY ....in' close to Portnoy's. Dynamically, BIGTIME, just the way he hits the skins and his phrasing. When I first saw him play, first thing I thought was, "If they want a Portnoy clone....there he is.".

I don't think it is gonna be Minneman because he is going into the studio this year with Guthrie Govan.

He was referring to who inspired Labrie's "Best by FAR" comment at the end of this video. Not who is going to be the new DT drummer.

Indeed! I went back and I've reached that conclusion as well - but it's no surprise given how much of a monster Virgil is

I have to agree with this.

I have a good friend who's friends with Neal Morse, and I got to hang out with Transatlantic when they went to Madrid. A girl friend of mine came to the show with me. After the show, we hung out with Transatlantic, and Mike was such a charming character, and very open to meeting the fans. My friend (who has the most serious case of "Portnoy-obsession" I've ever seen) was speechless and literally started crying when she met Mike face to face. Upon seeing this, he just hugged her, and was kind enough to invite her to their concert the next day in Barcelona, and, out of the blue, gave her two signed drumsticks. Sadly, she had to turn down the offer, as she had personal issues to deal with the following day. Those couple of days of being around the members of Transatlantic really showed me how humble they are, and Portnoy gave me the best of impressions. (EDIT: I can't stress enough the humility of the Transatlantic guys; they're incredible people).

I don't know anyone who's met Mangini, but he really reminds me of Portnoy in the sense that he seems extremely dedicated, very humble, and extroverted. Dream Theater not only needs an incredible drummer, but a good person who will always be fully involved with the band and will push them forward.

Again, even if Mangini isn't the chosen one, I'm sure they've made the right choice.

It seemed like they had mangini read lines lol. But he played the shit really well. And yes, he was pretty annoying. "Its like they're choosing a new wife. And we are all 7 pretty girls. " .. At least I won't hear his annoying frantic mannerisms on the new album. lol

Great point here. It's their band and while I'm very opinionated on my view from a fan's perspective, it's their band and I can't really judge the decision based on my biases.

Although I can judge /compare / critique the finished product once we hear it

I hope that the fan's point of view really has nothing in their decision. I want them to grasp the reigns of DT again and start driving it forward in a progressive fashion.

the new riff they are working on with mangini isn't too promising though. It's a typical heavy and odd time for odd time's sake thing that's been prevalent on the last several albums. no signs of their former greatness.

I can get over that.

Anyway, it's cool to hear all these stories about Portnoy and how he treated the fans with so much love/care for them. I hope that if I can ever be in a band that's how I would want to be.

Mangini, as well. Seeing his personality and all he seems like an awesome guy.

My friend (Travis Shore) took lessons from Mangini and he was actually Manginis teachers pet. One time Mangini got some new bass pedals (200$-300$ pedals). He said "he didn't need them" or something like that. So he gave them to my friend Travis. Supossively, at one time my friend was going to try to get in on the audition (not so sure). But he has mad skills.

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