Default Re: Dream Theater's new drummer

As far as the "playing it like the original" aspect, I too was struck by that statement as odd, given Jordan has never fully stuck to Kevin or Derek's keyboard parts, and Mike Portnoy often said he improvised so much in the studio that live he didn't play the same fills as the record.

So I re-watched it again last night, and what Jordan said was not that it has to the note for note like the original, but it has to have the "feel" of the original.

I think that is an important difference.
