Avenged Sevenfold Warned Portnoy

(Rock News Desk) Avenged Sevenfold warned Mike Portnoy not to quit Dream Theater especially if he was planning to stay with them, because they'd already decided he wasn't the "right fit" to become a full-time member.

The band admit they were delighted when he joined them as temporary replacement for tragic Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan, who died in 2009. But they felt stuck in an uncomfortable situation when he decided to quit his own band half-way through their world tour. "When Mike first came in he was sincere in the fact he was there help us fulfill Jimmy's legacy," Guitarist Zacky Vengeance tells Guitar World. "We'll always be so thankful and truthfully he was really the only man for the job.

"But I think he was also searching for new things to do. I know for a fact he was starting to lose his romance with Dream Theater, and that had been going on from before he knew us. more on this story
