Mike Portnoy Addresses Misconceptions

(Classic Rock) Mike Portnoy thinks he might be one of most misunderstood musicians in the world especially by those who believe he suffers from lack of commitment.

That's an accusation levelled against him after he quit Dream Theater in 2010 and went on to work with Avenged Sevenfold, Adrenaline Mob, Transatlantic, Flying Colors, Bigelf, Portnoy Sheehan MacAlpine Sherinian and his latest project the Winery Dogs. But the drummer says the appearance is deceptive.

He tells IconVsIcon: "Misconceptions about me that are out there by the fans and non-fans as well. I think the biggest one is that I'm band-jumping or opportunity-jumping. That's not the case.

"I don't think you will find more dedication than I do for what I did for Dream Theater. I literally oversaw every single step, every minute of the day; I did that for 25 years. You won't find a more committed artist than me." more on this story
