Mike Portnoy Never Returning To Dream Theater?

(Rock News Desk) Dream Theater's new drummer Mike Mangini says Mike Portnoy will never return to the band because the new man is going to work hard to keep his job.

Mangini was named as sticksman for the prog metal outfit after Portnoy sensationally quit last year. He asked to rejoin soon afterwards but Mangini had already been given the role. But since then Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci have both said it's likely they'll work together again in the future.

That doesn't concern Mangini, who tells Radio Metal: "I don't feel like it's hanging over my head. The reason why is I like Mike very much. He's a friend and I have new brothers in Dream Theater, and when you love somebody you let them do what they need to to.

"I feel very comfortable I'm in the band for good. Mike's not coming back, and that's the deal. I'm the drummer. I feel confident of that." more on this story
