The way Mangini is shown throwing the sticks away at the end of the video has just pissed me right off and I really don't want it to be him. It just looks so arrogant and un-DT.
Uh... what?! MP used to do it, and loads of drummers do it. He was probably just having fun, from the couple of reports we've heard from the drummers, it sounds like it was an enjoyable time.

But it was an audition and it just smacked of "I am awesome and I've just proved it. The deal is done" and it rubbed me up the wrong way.
MP earned the right to do it.
I've enjoyed checking out these drummers over the last few months but every Mangini video I've seen I haven't liked. Awful drum sound and overplaying to the detriment of the song. I am worried now. I'm feeling like it may be Queensryche all over again. I need to go and lie down! Nurse, the screens.

i can understand why it might rub you the wrong way, but in no way were they arrogant in throwing their sticks. as ariich said, mp used to do it, so in no way should it been seen as insulting. they were just acting in the spontaneity of the moment. nothing more, nothing less.  
There is so little respek left in the world, that if you look it up in the dictionary, you'll find that it has been taken out.

Yeah, Lowdz, I think you're reading too much into it.  Seems to me he was just having a bit of fun, which I think is cool.

He didn't throw his sticks, his sticks fled due to fear of his incredible drumming.

I originally wanted it to be Lang and I still do, but all the evidence points to Mangini in my opinion. Even though Mangini was my #2 choice, I will still feel extremely happy for him if (but most likely when) they announce him name as the drummer! ;)

No excitement for Mangini whatsoever, i just can't imagine his drum machine sound adding a lot to DT's music...

I agree.  It was a part of the video that I really liked.  It showed a personality to the playing - and obviously the other four liked it as well.  Otherwise, it wouldn't make the final edit.

I'm wanting to see the audition tapes more than hearing the new album right now actually, haha.
I'm totally seeing that become my favourite collection of DT video's.

Seeing Thomas Lang, Mike mangini, Virgil Donati and Marco Minnemann play DT songs in great studio quality. Man... I cannot imagine the awesomeness.

I was in a bad mood yesterday. It seems a silly thing to get pissed off about but it just felt wrong.
I've been a bit harsh on Mangini throughout this process and if he's the guy I'll have to get used to it. I'm sure the guys are a better judge of a good drummer than me, and they have to tour the world with the guy too.

I found the 100% Mangini factor interesting. Thought it may swing some more votes his way.

The irony is that DT have absolutely tons of fans while Dominici have very few. But I guess that's the result of a hatred of "promotional ploys". :P

To make a funny joke like that, one must have some kind of leverage, credibility, respect.

Charlie Dominici has none of the above.

So, my band's drummer brought up an interesting point about the applicants, how a few of them (especially Donati and Lang) kinda have such a strong independent career going on that they might never had been truly part of DT, but rather "DT + Donati" etc.

I see what you mean, it may seem that DT are just another one of their projects they do, and not their "home," even though it seemed that Lang truly wanted to be part of DT when he mentioned the home.

I think that's part of what DT faced as they considered their options. All of these guys list many bands in their personal discographies and I'm sure that the DT guys didn't want to be just one of those many listed.

But if they did the "inviting" these guys to audition as it kind of sounds like they did, they had to know there was a risk. I've wondered who was invited and who actually applied. I suppose we'll see in the video.
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
You know that a mark of a great song is if TAC hates it with a special passion.
