Re: Portnoy out...
He had a pretty nice house (from what can be seen in his videos/DVDs). Ahh yes I'm sure he makes a good bit of income out of DVD sales too.
He'll be sitting on enough to make it through a few years at least I'm sure. And he of course would have many industry contacts to pull him out and put him on a gigging throne if he needed it.
