If you're a fan of Dream Theater(such as myself), you have likely heard the news of Mike Portnoy's departure from the band. He posted a long letter online to inform his fans that he was no longer a member of the band he had been with for 25 years. It was very disappointing to me, because I don't see how DT can really replace Portnoy that easily. There are other great drummers, but it's more than drumming talent that has to be filled. He and Petrucci were the faces of that band, in my opinion.
What were your thoughts on the situation when you heard about it? Feel free to discuss what you think is going to happen in the future for DT.
