Metal Report: Dream Theater & Skid Row!

Post by heelorton79 » December 8th, 2017, 3:20 pm

Here's a quick report featuring two great metal bands. I've been a fan of these bands since their early days, and had yet to meet Dream Theater. Well, I actually did get keyboard wizard Jordan Rudess many years ago, but that photo got destroyed on a camera along with Martin Scorsese. I also recently met original drummer Mike Portnoy during the Jericho fiasco. These guys are prodigies and LaBrie and Myung are probably my favorite singer and bass player, respectively. Anyway, the show was AMAZING ( I had second row) and the band members were all totally cool...even Mike Mangini who was rushing out in the cold with wet hair. Skid Row were also great. There are currently 3 original members in the band, and I had photos with 2 of them from years back. I also have photos with former members Sebastian Bach, and more recently Rob Affuso (who I posted not long ago). So the only original member I had yet to meet was Scotti Hill, and he was totally fan friendly, making sure everyone got their photos and autographs before he left. I grabbed updates with Rachel and Dave and new pics with the current vocalist (and former DragonForce singer) ZP Theart and drummer Rob Hammersmith. All around true rockstars and a testament to how all bands should treat their fans!
