Rudess has too many flaws to be a Gilmour.

Well, the fact that KM and JP don't stay in touch anymore is sad to me as well because they were the best fiends during KM's time in DT. JP has always said that KM was such a funny guy and has probably forgotten that he still is. I have always wondered why don't JP, JLB and JM speak of Kevin publicly. Or even better why not do something different like a side-project with him. It is obvious that MP and KM don't make a good team (anymore).

KM actually spoke very graciously about MP's contributions to the first two OSI records (interview links are in the OSI threads in Music Discussion)...compare that to how MP bitched about those sessions...shouldn't be so fast to take one side of the story as Truth...
I once read an interview a few of months back where Moore was continuosly making little jokes and small digs at MP, and Dream Theater in general throughout the interview. It was a while ago, so my memory is a little faded, but that's how I remember it. I'll try to find it again at some point. :tup
The band describing John Myung:
JLB: "He's deep. He's deep in thought"
JP: "We have a deep understanding musically"
JR: "John Myung is a very deep kind of person"
MP: "John Myung is an enigma... N he's deep as fuck yo'"

John Petrucci = Richard Wright

So which one's Pink?

As this gets discussed more it seems that MP has acted just as rudely towards KM as KM is rumoured to have been towards him. Understandably it seems to be a touchy subject with Portnoy but he has blasted the guy and his work ethic several times, whilst I've yet to see a similar action from KM.

How regularly does KM perform stuff live? I know he's done the occasional show but is there any regulalarity to it?

Yeah, MP does seem to tend to do that, but I think when KM refuses to play any one off shows with the band, kind of refuses to acknowledge his time in DT and pretty much looks down upon that style of music, even though he owes his career to it, MP would probably take that attitude as a big insult, and hurt his feelings after them being friends for a good amount of years. So when MP says, "I don't like working with him, it's boring", it's probably partly his way of putting up a kind of front to say "I don't care either" and keep his pride intact. Of course there's mainly just creative issues probably too :biggrin:

Ahhhhhh the KM debate.  Good times...

I'm pretty sure everyone knows my stance at this point, but it ranges between both of them need to fucking grow up and siding with Kevin.  Depends on my mood.

As much as I love Rudess, I'd love to see a lighter-rock side project that featured Kevin with James LaBrie on vocals and Steve Wilson doing guitars.

Kevin Moore left DT to go make weird electronic noises and sing over the top of it in a monotone drone, and has 38 fans. More power to him. At least he'll always have Images and Words to brag about  :tup.

You mean the one where he kept getting asked questions about DT? I wouldn't really call those subtle digs since he was just answering the questions, or is that only applicable when Portnoy does it?

I don't see either man at fault if they're being asked directly about it. If people are going to ask the question, I prefer the honesty over brushing off the question.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

OK, none of us really know these guys (well, maybe some of us do).  So let's stop insulting them.

KM is not a bad guy because he left DT.
MP is not a bad guy because he isn't on the best of terms with KM.

They're both human, which is bad enough to start out with.

And also, DT fans shouldn't dislike KM just because MP says things about him.  If you don't like the music he's making now (and I don't particularly care for it myself), then that's fine.  But I don't see KM bashing as very helpful or productive.  He has his reasons for for leaving DT and going his own route, and we should all respect those reasons.

*stops rambling*
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Did you guys notice the fake rumours about Kevin's death that surfaced around his birthday? Scared me for a few seconds until I got my hands around the initial "source". Then I chuckled.

I found out from the CK/KM forums and this link: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090527210856AA5Ivf8
But apparently someone edited his Wiki page but the edit was deleted.

In fact I'd say I love KM's work because of rather than in spite of the electronic noises and his monotonous singing.

Well, I was disputing the "weird" and "monotone drone."  I think the electronics are cool, not weird.  And the singing is certainly distinctive, but I'd call it laid-back instead of droning.

Oh those vocals are droning alright, it's just that that isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially for the kind of music he's making.
