Back in the time I still had to study that, and I'm speaking of about four/five years ago, it used to be a favourite of mine. And since my mother teaches English literature in the high school, you can bet I had plenty of textbooks and other things to nourish my love . Then I decided to pursue a Physics degree
Do you love physics as much as this?
I played me some Winter Rose on the way to Uni to cheer up. Fun fact: I heard my first full WR album before I heard my first full DT album. I was around 13 or 14, just getting into rock music, and my brother used to collect all sorts of 80's stuff back then, so he ran across Winter Rose. I remember listening to it and thinking "dear lord, if only the singer would shut up, he's fucking annoying"
the only DT song I had heard up until that point was Hollow Years, and then my brother told me it was the same person who sang both, and I was like "okay, no way in hell I'll be listening to Dream Theater, he pisses me off way too much".
Now, whenever I play WR, I play it for JLB's voice, which I've grown to adore. Funny how things change.
