Mike Portnoy's 9/11 Story

(hennemusic) As we approach the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy (now with Adrenaline Mob) recounts his recollections of the day in an interview with Noisecreep.

"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
