Mike Portnoy Tried To Rejoin Dream Theater

(Rock AAA) Avenged Sevenfold have explained why Mike Portnoy could not remain with the band into 2011 and they say the drummer agrees with their sentiments.

Last week the ex-Dream Theater man announced he'd been dismissed from the band he's been standing in with since their sticksman, Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan, died last Christmas. "We're not ready to add a permanent member and we don't know if we'll ever be.... Mike and the band agree it can't be him." [to find out why see the link at the end of this story]

Last week A7X frontman M Shadows suggested another reason behind Portnoy's departure was the band's distress over the way he dealt with his split with Dream Theater. Meanwhile, Portnoy has revealed he tried to rejoin Dream Theater soon after he'd quit but the band said no via their legal counsel. more on this story
