Somehow, I missed this on the Roadrunner News site when it went up December 10, but Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci is a man I can respect. Not only is it obvious from this year-end Q&A that he’s got a sense of humor. And he doesn’t care about giving answers that may not be politically-correct.
Of course, Marco Minnemann is rumored to be the band’s new drummer, replacing Mike Portnoy, who left Dream Theater a few months ago. In the Q&A, John’s asked what his personal theme song for 2010 is, and why: “‘I Will Survive’ (for obvious reasons!)” Petrucci confesses that in 2010, he learned how to smoke meat and his biggest lesson learned in 2010? “Don’t let your drummer fill in for another band.”
Petrucci says that his New Year’s resolution is “To use all my creative resources in making the next DT album and tour the best possible and to be more connected with our fans.”
