Suppose each audition takes an hour.  That means they'll probably get through two a day. Which means...maybe Thursday!
"All great works are prepared in the desert, including the redemption of the world. The precursors, the followers, the Master Himself, all obeyed or have to obey one and the same law. Prophets, apostles, preachers, martyrs, pioneers of knowledge, inspired artists in every art, ordinary men and the Man-God, all pay tribute to loneliness, to the life of silence, to the night." - A. G. Sertillanges

Discussions about the auditions and the new drummer really should be in the threads that are about those topics.

Portnoy arrived to Barcelona to start the six week tour in Europe. I know that he is still mourning his departure from DT, but as soon as his tour with A7X ends, that's when the real depression will kick in. The news of the name of the new drummer will be a hard pill to swallow, not to mention the release of the new album, but to realize that they are starting to tour without him, that's when it'll really hit him.

I don't think that they'll decide that fast. There's probably going to be one or two recalls, and then internal debating and deciding. If we're lucky, it'll take a month.

lol you all think it's based on how crazy prog the drummer can be, how many odd time sigs they can do, how great of independent limb control they have. HAH!

Clearly the winner will be the one who brings a fresh batch of salmon.

And what better way to survive than bring a fresh batch of salmon as a distraction?

But you can't distract a wizard, ninja, or pirate with salmon...

But neither a wizard, ninja, nor pirate will kill and eat you before asking questions simply because they are hungry.

The new drummer will have to take a ninja, pirate, wizard and bear across a river on a boat, but the boat can only take him and 2 of the 4 at any one time... :lol

We're all just wasting time waiting for the news of the next drummer.  We're in the silly phase of denial right now. :laugh:

So you eat live, good-smelling fish on your pizza? Or live, odor-less fish?
