Mike Portnoy olisi halukas soittamaan vielä keikkoja Dream Theaterin riveissä

Mike Portnoy Hello Kitty 2015Yhdysvaltalainen maailman tunnetuimpiin rumpaleihin lukeutuva Mike Portnoy on antanut hiljattain GigsAndFestivals.com:lle haastattelun, jossa mieheltä on kysytty mietteitä David Bowien hiljattaiseen kuolemaan liittyen. Mike on haastattelussa yltynyt vertailemaan Bowien kuolemaa omiin muistoihin Dream Theateriin liittyen ja samaisessa yhteydessä kertonut olevansa yhä avoin soittamaan keikkoja vanhan yhtyeensä riveissä mikäli mahdollisuus siihen joskus tulee.

”Look, I’m a very sentimental guy, I’m a very nostalgic guy,” he responded. ”I was the guy in DREAM THEATER that opened up the door to [former keyboard player] Derek Sherinian and [original vocalist] Charlie Dominici to come back and join us on stage [at a concert in Los Angeles in 2004]. I also extended that invite to [keyboardist] Kevin Moore, so I’ve always been that type of person. I look at my past with a fond memory, and I probably shouldn’t even say this — I’m not trying to publicly state this — but around Christmas time I sent all the guys in DREAM THEATER a nice e-mail, just reaching out to say how much I love and miss them, because that’s just the way I am.”

”Jordan [Rudess, keyboards] and John Petrucci [guitar], we’ve stayed in touch, so in answer to your question, I’ve never closed the door on doing something with them. It’s not like I’m waiting for it; it’s not like I’m planning it, it’s not like it’s in my career plan, but certainly if the invitation, or if the opportunity arose, I would surely welcome it. It’s just because, you know, I don’t hold grudges, and I like to have an open heart and always cherish the people in my life and in my past. That was twenty-five years of my life.”
