Up to 90% off sounds good. Are you leaving yourself enough to deal with warranties etc...?

I have about ten friends who went to this gig who had to walk out when Voyager apparently started playing TV and movie theme songs, only to find out Bodom may as well have done the same thing consdiering how terrible they were.

Moral of the story: You can't polish one turd, let alone two.
10 friends walked out. Hundreds stayed.

Moral of the story: Experiences may vary.

Yeah sucks bad!
Didn't really care about the other two (especially Satriani) but I really wanted to see Steve Lukather again...

yeah, bring back FMC (Firm Meaty Chunks for those of you too young to remember)! That was an awesome e-zine, run by none other than Dysie of course. Its actually what lead me to WF in the first place all those many years ago. I think it would be a cool idea. I'd put my hand up to help in any way I can.

FMC was gold!

ahhh back in the day

It?s a tragic story of a bizarre fetish, an innocent young girl, hints of organised crime and a dodgy priest.

I remember the WF forum way back to when it first appeared. It was always a hotbed for multiple logins, taking the piss and threats. <- I'm not saying it as a bad thing  :eyebrows: but a lot of the guys (and gals) from that time now are either retired from the 'discussions' and/or lie dormant.

I'm going to play drums for Evolution Machine for this show.
i learned the songs ...
Pure undisputed grimness. Can't wait!!  :headbang:

Evolution Machine's first gig with the Notorious D.A.N (the lovable WF dparker). Come down and heckle him and/or throw beer in our faces.

I assume they're pretentious based on the fact they write pretentious music, just to answer that question quickly for you too.
How can music be pretentious? It is what it is.

MIKE PORTNOY: I Tried To Rejoin DREAM THEATER But Was Rebuffed
December 20th, 2010
by EvilG

Mike Portnoy
Ex-DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy has revealed that he made a recent attempt to rejoin his former bandmates but was rebuffed by the group he formed and led for 25 years. Writing on his official forum, Portnoy states, ?Just for the record, this is indeed true..

?Fairly recently, I reached out to the guys to try and make amends and offered to reconcile for the sake of having peace back in our lives? (plus I know how much it meant to a lot of the fans?)

?I figured it was still possible to try and save us, because they hadn?t made any announcements yet or begun any public activity with another drummer? but sadly, they declined my offer (well, actually their lawyer did? they didn?t even tell me themselves?.)

?Sorry, gang, I honestly gave it my all?

?So now the fans on my Twitter and Facebook can please stop asking me to go back to DREAM THEATER? I tried, and the door is now shut? The ball is now in their court, not mine?

?I?m not crying or looking for mercy by posting this? I am merely trying to set the record straight as that is always the most important thing about my relationship with you guys? No BS, no spins, nothing to hide? and for better or for worse, I tell it like it is? I?ve also recently seen some people accuse my online activity of ?looking for attention or media coverage,? or ?looking for sympathy,? but it?s honestly none of the above? I merely value having an open and active communication with my fans? Always have, always will? It is the cornerstone of everything I?ve done since day #1 with DREAM THEATER?

?This was posted here FOR YOU GUYS to know about? here on MY message board on MY website? If it ends up on Blabbermouth or wherever else, that is THEIR choice to spread, I did not request it or send out a ?press release??

?Anyways, onward and upward?

?I?ve got a lot of great music and ideas waiting to come out of me and alot of exciting collaborations in the works?.so goodbye 2010?bring on 2011!?

AVENGED SEVENFOLD issued a statement late on Friday (December 17) regarding the dismissal of Portnoy, who played on the band?s latest album, ?Nightmare?, and toured with them during the past year following the death last December of original drummer Jimmy ?The Rev? Sullivan. The band?s statement read in part, ?For the past few months, we?ve been blessed with Mike Portnoy?s talent and humanity. When Mike agreed to tour with us, it was only through the end of 2010. We always knew we?d need to find another solution for 2011 and beyond. And it?s time for us to take that next step.?

As for why Portnoy himself was not their man, the statement said, ?[Portnoy] is a brilliant writer, producer and, of course, drummer. Because of that, the world and we would always see it as AVENGED SEVENFOLD with Mike Portnoy. We take a lot of pride in AVENGED SEVENFOLD being about something greater then any individuals.?

Portnoy himself broke the news via his Facebook page on Thursday, following several days of rumors about his status.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows told The Pulse Of Radio that the band was not happy about the public way in which Portnoy?s split with DREAM THEATER was played out, which may have soured Portnoy?s relationship with AVENGED. ?We were actually a little more shocked,? M. Shadows said. ?We felt that maybe both parties could have handled it a little more internally without being so press release-happy about what had happened between them. Because we?re a band that, really, when it comes to news all over web sites or this or that about bands, you know, we don?t tweet much, we don?t try to put ourselves out that much, and all the drama and controversy wasn?t something that we wanted at all.?

In an interview over the weekend with LA Weekly, AVENGED manager Larry Jacobson said, ?The plan had always been for Mike Portnoy to play with the band through 2010. Nothing changed there but it was confusing (because) Mike gave interviews suggesting he may be touring with the band beyond 2010.?
