Re: Mike Portnoy
Yeah, but I don't get the whole "DT is influenced by Tool" comment. DT has been around for so much longer, it's almost sacrilege. Can a much older band be 'influenced' by bands that came after them, in the same vein? If anything, I'd say it would be an homage to the younger Tool and likes.
This would be like saying the Stones are influenced by the Hives. (maybe not that extreme, but hopefully my point is understood).
