Jordan has done several projects with Rod Morgenstein, and a host of others. DT has toured with many other guys who could have done the gig. Also, who knows who else might have been asked, but just couldn't make it.
For example, I heard a rumor Bobby Jarzombek was asked, but he just couldn't due to his touring commitments.
I thought guys like Jason Rullo (Symphony X) or even Gavin Harrison could have been worth
a discussion, but I suppose they're busy with their own stuff and bands, especially Gavin.
And Gavin is probably not too much the metal/rock drummer.
