Mike wrote this on his message board:
"There's a reason I post WHAT I post WHEN I post it...
Don't you think if I wanted the guitar player announced, I would've done it???
I appreciate your enthusiasm here, but please respect my wishes to only disclose certain things when *I* want that info disclosed and announced

How on Earth can that be misunderstood or misinterpreted in any way...it would seem pretty obvious to me
"

Wow. Just Wow.




I also like how the thread title iS Mike Portnoy PMS. Suits the drama well. :lol
:rollin
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

This is my favorite Ron Thal (Bumblefoot) piece. I could easily imagine this being played in Derek and Mike's style.

STOP YELLING LIKE THAT MIKE! Joking aside, it's nobody's fault but the guy who posted the pic there! Do you think MP will be serving us Never Enough part 2 with his new supergroup?  :biggrin:

I get his point but he could have really realized the blame was on his own bandmates and not for fans breaking in into the studio to see what was going on. He could have said "I know you guys are the best detectives in the internet and that there are rumors out there, but you know I have a master plan on revealing things when I know will be the most exciting, and not everybody is analyzing Twitter posts and photos like they work in CSI, so please,  keep the surprise for those who aren't actively looking for any minute detail and bear with me, trust me, it will be worth it!"

Yeah, I guess it would have been more reasonable.

The only person he should be upset with is the person who posted the video that, you know, included Bumblefoot.

No more teasing until the summer... I wonder if he can get everyone involved to stop posting on social media

Deleting posts on his own board must be the least effective way of stopping leaks.

Speaking about deleting posts, yesterday night I replied Mike's tweet of him and DS in the studio (this one: https://twitter.com/MikePortnoy/status/840655819557367808) saying: @MikePortnoy @DerekSherinian Don't forget to tag @Bumblefoot   ;) "

I went to sleep after that, since it was late here where I live. Well... woke up in the morning today and, guess what? Found MP had sent me a DM saying:
"Don't make me block you...
We have NOT announced our guitar player".

I'm not making this out, I took an screenshot and still have the message with me. If i ever figure out how to attach the shot here I'll post it, or I can mail it to anyone if you want  :P

He didn't block me, and was "kind enough" to warn me first, so I deleted the tweet. Still, like some people have said in earlier posts, that's not the best way to manage the leaks. Just tell the people next to you to stop filming posting stuff online and that's it! Isn't even that difficult, Mike. I guess his "same level of control as I had in DT" means he gets to decide how the other guys use their social media accounts?  :huh:

He got banned I think. If I remember correctly, he started getting really confrontational towards the end.

Sorry... towards THE end

Also, gzarruk. I hope you find a way to post that screenshot. That sounds hilarious. I don't know how I'd react and that your tweet was "block worthy"  :lol

Maybe Bumblefoot isn't in the band yet?

Maybe Mike and Derek are jamming with multiple guys to see who works out. That would be the only way I can see why MP would get so angry at the info coming out.

But it's not even something to get angry about. If it's not Bumblefoot, just say: "Nice try, but keep guessing" Not get pissed off and block people and delete comments and such

It's just a control thing. He had a specific release schedule in mind, and that's all out the window now.

Well, I said something like "Sorry Mike, will delete the tweet now". But yeah, that was interesting  :lol

Since I don't really know how to attach pics here, I uploaded it to my dropbox so you can see it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q61ullvniexuvsp/MP%20Tweet.jpg?dl=0

Right after I identified Bumblefoot I tweeted the pic to him Mike, and Derek but I deleted it not long after because I felt like Mike would call me out on it and I'd face the wrath of his rabid fanbase.
Bumblefoot actually followed me on Twitter after I posted it.

I hope we didn't get Derek's keyboard tech fired :mehlin

So, doesn't look like the leaks are intentional.  Not the best way to handle that sort of thing.  Then again, if you're gonna hype this thing, why not just tell us who is in the band?  Or just keep it secret you're even working on something. 

:lol Oh Mike

It's almost surreal to see someone so proud of his interaction with fans continue to show such contempt for them.  It's like he has no respect for any fan who doesn't march to the beat of everything he says and does.

Of course you can speculate and look for clues!! That's half the fun!
The posts that were deleted were sharing information that was not supposed to be shared or leaked.
(and they were deleted for a reason...so please do not try to re-post them!)


...and several people (you know who you are) were going around to several social medias posting certain things based on that as "confirmed news" which is NOT the case....
 
The only things that CAN be confirmed and announced so far are the few things I have posted on MY social media...anything else from anywhere else is just "rumor and speculation" so far...
 
I DO indeed enjoy the excitement and speculation...that is indeed why I post "teasers" in the first place.
But there is a method to my madness and a reason why only certain things have been announced so far!
 
On that note, my "Del Fulvio" post yesterday is the last teaser for a while...there will likely not be any further official announcements or info on this band until Summer time when we are ready to properly "unveil" it and setup the album's release...
 
So, please speculate all you want from the "official" information that I have posted so far...
