    That's not bad. However, he seems to be a bit "theatrical" with his voice like LaBrie.

    I also thought about Ian Gillan. But, I really think I'd like Glenn Hughes.

    “Freaky” I was reading your comments and before I’d finished, I thought “Glenn Hughes”!! Great minds, or fools seldom differing?!:D

    Gillan would have been good when he still had a voice. I saw them in September, and while he is still awesome, he can't hit it like he used to. Then again, neither can I :oops:

    Glenn Hughes still sounds shockingly good.

    They did a series of videos for the drummer auditions a couple years ago when Mike Mangini got the job after Portnoy left.

    This is part 1. There are at least 3 (I didn't see part 4, but can't swear it doesn't exist).



    Marco Zinnemann is a monster, and part of me was hoping he'd get the gig, but I didn't want him to have to give up on the Aristocrats (there's a band that's sick with talent - maybe I'll start that thread!). I talked to him at an Aristocrats show and told him that, ultimately, I was glad he didn't get DT and said I was torn watching the auditions. He said he was disappointed not to get it, but it was all gone the next time he played w/the Aristocrats. He did say it was actually probably better that he didn't get DT because he'd have had to give up some of his other stuff besides the Aristocrats because of the demands of the DT gig.

    I love Marco Minnemann's work with Paul Gilbert, especially the Space Ship One Live videos. Mangini is a great fit for DT, though, and I'm glad he got the gig. I feel like the band declined after Train of Thought, but hit their stride again with the self-titled album once Mangini was settled in.

    I've always hated "Space Dye Vest". At the end of "Scarred" it's like, whelp, album over!


    As if we need any more evidence that DT is for nerds, I wrote a paper about this album in a modern lit class at my university. We also watched The Matrix in class and everyone wrote a paper on it. It was a cool class.


    Gotta put "The Looking Glass" out here. Or "Rush 2.0" as I think of it.

    I found this on my travels in internet-land in 'Guitar Motel'...

    One of of Mr Ibanez's John Petrucci specials, hand painted by Michelangelo if I remember correctly...

    https://www.guitarmotel.com/#/guitar/ibanez-1998-jpm-90ham-john-petrucci

    And as I know we're meant to keep it PRS, here's a link to the same site's pictures of a certain old PRS Custom, 5 0001.

    Why is it that most of the metal guys go Ibanez when PRSi can give this tone?
