Dream Theater no debería seguir sin Mike Portnoy

Si bien es cierto que el baterista Mike Portnoy anunció ayer su salida del grupo Dream Theater, los otros miembros del grupo aseguran que la banda seguira existiendo sin el como lo publicaron en su web site oficial.

“To all of our loyal fans and friends: It is with profound sadness — regret — we announce that Mike Portnoy, our lifelong drummer and friend, has decided to leave Dream Theater. Mike’s stature in the band has meant the world to all of us professionally, musically, and personally over the years. There is no dispute: Mike has been a major force within this band.

While it is true that Mike is choosing to pursue other ventures and challenges, we can assure you that Dream Theater will continue to move forward with the same intensity — and in the same musical tradition — that you have all helped make so successful, and which is truly gratifying to us.

Fans and friends: File this episode under “Black Clouds and Silver Linings.” As planned, we begin recording our newest album in January 2011, and we’ll follow that with a full-on world tour. “The Spirit Carries On.”

All of us in Dream Theater wholeheartedly wish Mike the best on his musical journey. We have had a long and meaningful career together. It is our true hope that he finds all he is looking for, and that he achieves the happiness he deserves. He will be missed.”

Mike Portnoy fundó, lideró y era el emblema de esa banda reconocida por sus cambios progresivos y haber perfeccionado el estilo de la bateria del Neil Peart de Rush, incluso el papá de Mike Portnoy fue quien puso el nombre de la banda.

Personalmente pienso que la banda no deberia seguir tocando con el mismo nombre por que sencillamente no seria lo mismo escuchar Dream Theater sin Portnoy en la bateria. Eso seria como escuchar Iron Maiden sin Harris en el bajo, Aerosmith sin Tyler, o AC/DC sin Angus.
