Updated Trends: Drummer of Dream Theater Mike Portnoy Quits The Band
One of the biggest drummers in the world and the drummer of the band Dream Theater’s Mike Portnoy has quit the band after being the founding member and performing around the whole world since the past 25 years or so.
Mike Portnoy quite the band mainly because he thought that Dream Theater should take a break for a couple of years as he feels that would do the band good. But, the other band members of Dream Theater want to launch another album for next year and want to start recording it in January 2011.
The best thing that would happen for the band would be that Mike Portnoy lets the rest of the guys continue and go ahead with the album without him.
Dream Theater have replaced their keyboardist and vocalist before but this is the first time that they will be playing without their original founding member.
Mike Portnoy loves Dream Theater as his baby, but hopes that he can return someday back with the band. The rest of the band continue and are really sad about his decision.
Mike Portnoy will be playing with Avenged Sevenfold for now.
