Seems obvious there is,, was.

I've chit-chatted with Mike at NAMM shows in the past, and he's usually pretty down to earth, and upbeat about discussing DT.

This last January, I saw him, and I asked about a summer US tour, and he said no, and made some comment about "well, you didn't just have to spend the last 7 months on the road with them". I thought it was a bit odd that he'd be a bit snappy, but then again, it was a long day, it was late, and I was probably the 1001 person to ask him the same question, so I didn't think much about it.

And then I read an recent interview somewhere, and he made a very back handed comment about James Labrie, which struck me as an odd thing to say about your bands singer.

So I'm guessing tensions have been brewing for a while.
