Mike Portnoy's 9/11 Story
"I remember waking up Tuesday, September 11, 2001 to my wife telling me to put on the TV because I wasn't going to be going into NYC as planned," recalls Portnoy. "Dream Theater was working in New York City at the time mixing our album 'Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence' and I would've been driving in that afternoon for our session. But as the events of the morning unfolded, I found myself glued to the TV in disbelief as to what I was witnessing. It was all too surreal. I felt like I was watching a Will Smith Hollywood film. It couldn't possibly be really happening."
"When I finally did return to work in New York City a few days later, it was just as surreal as there was a sadness and almost deafening silence still lingering throughout the streets of Manhattan." more on this story
