Former Dream Theater and current Winery Dogs drummer Mike Portnoy has responded to fan criticism calling him a "sell out" following the release of the new Tweet Secret app.
Portnoy had a strong reaction to the criticism on his Facebook page. He wrote fans, "The Tweet Secret app is something fun that I was asked to be a part of (along w several other musicians, athletes, etc). I don't control the fact that there is a monthly subscription fee, but really, it's only $2.99 a month. Is that really worth complaining about?? That's less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks!
"I figured you'd enjoy getting an inside, behind the scenes look into my day-to-day life. If this does NOT interest you, then fine, just ignore the posts that automatically go here when a new clip is posted and move on with your day.
"However, the nasty comments that seem to be popping up here calling me a 'sellout' or personally attacking me because of this app (which is not mine, mind you!) will not be tolerated and you will be banned from this page. There's no need to be mean and nasty around here."
