Default Re: Dream Theater's new drummer

Would have been nice to give everyone the same camera time like they did Mangini, so him being featured is probably a clue on their decision.

From the clips it appears DR struggled with the improv. I'm guessing he likes to work on things on his own and would have come back the next day and probably nailed it.

Lang doing his own thing seems to have been a negative. I think they wanted to hear MP's signature licks

Virgil might have too much chops for their liking. Not sure why you would experiment with drum parts during an audition.

Marco sounded great....brought alot of energy and a positive vibe. I was impressed!

So the guy that blew the singer away is not Virgil but one of the last two remaining.
