Mike Portnoy 'Never Closed The Door' On Dream Theater Return

(Classic Rock) Mike Portnoy says he'd "welcome" a Dream Theater return if the opportunity ever arose. The drummer quit the band in 2010, leading to a public war of words, and an attempt to rejoin, and was eventually replaced by Mike Mangini.

He's gone on to appear in several projects since the split, including Flying Colors, Metal Allegiance, and his band The Winery Dogs. But he says he'd be open to some sort of reconciliation in the future.

He tells Gigs And Festivals: " Jordan Rudess and John Petrucci, we've stayed in touch. I've never closed the door on doing something with them. It's not like I'm waiting for it - it's not like I'm planning it, it's not like it's in my career plan, but certainly if the invitation, or if the opportunity arose, I would surely welcome it.

"It's just because I don't hold grudges, and I like to have an open heart and always cherish the people in my life and in my past. That was 25 years of my life." Read more here.
