So, you prefer any DT song over Scarred, Mr. BlobVanDam?

In my opinion, your opinion that opinions aren't allowed contradicts your own opinion that opinions in your opinion are not allowed in your opinion.

I guess it's the same as with the Simpsons, where the first season looks strangely off.

So, you prefer any DT song over Scarred, Mr. BlobVanDam?

The only songs I might dislike more would be a few off WDADU (and I find most of the album much better). That's not to say they don't have a few stinkers after that too, but I prefer them all.
There are only a very small handful of DT songs I can't listen to though, which is why those few always get singled out by me. I'm not into the whole "even DT's bad songs are better than most bands" crap, however, DT's lesser songs are still usually at least decent. For a band with 12 albums, that's impressive. :tup
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.

I think it's really lame that Dream Theater was constantly firing band members. I can understand it, being a rich and successful musical group of elite musicians, but I like to view bands as a group of brothers. I would never fire a band member as long as they were doing their job, even at the expense of the success of the band. If you WOULD fire a brother, you were never really a family to begin with. I laugh when I hear Mike make comments about Dream Theater being a family. They're a cold hearted corporation, nothing more, nothing less. How dare Mike want to fire JLB back in the day. Some family. That was really f***ing lame that Mike would fire all those previous members, and even consider firing the long term face of the band. On another controversial and related opinion, I think Mike Portnoy is a jerk and I would want nothing to do with him if I was a musician.

Constantly firing band members? They've done that, what, twice? Dominici (not sure how that went down) and Sherinian.

Moore left, Portnoy left, and there haven't been any other lineup changes, that I can think of.

I don't even really consider that firing. I mean, the ones before, they weren't even DT. And after, there were only people who they tried out for a few days or shows or something. I'm pretty sure almost every band ever has done that.

They did have this one guy Steve Stone sing for DT for like 5 seconds before being fired after a gig.

Though if you read up on it, their reasons were pretty sound. :corn

Of course, if you hire a singer for 5 minutes, that doesn't really constitute as firing a 'brother'. More like a drunken Vegas marriage getting annulled.

Jordan is actually DT's tax advisor. He just happens to do their taxes on stage, that's why he has that iPad there.

Jordan looks like an ancient Chinese warrior.

Just about every band has that one instrument that sees a lot of rotation before it settles on the right guy. More often than not it's the singer, because especially that spot in the band is overrun with people whose ego writes checks their voices can't cash in.
