He was supposed to be in some opeth/porcupine tree side project, but I heard they decided to use someone else instead

Yup. It's just Steve Wilson and Mike Akerfeldt on that project now.

I posted something on another board that said "If he joins Avenged Sevenfold as a full time member, I'll pull a Mark David Chapman on him."

He's already part of Transatlantic. That's pretty super, if you ask me. He was the session drummer for those Avenged Sevenfold fags on their last album, so he just might wind up there, as much as I hate to admit it.

A7X is the end all of metal bands so I don't know what you're problem is. They're probably my favorite, right up there with Five Finger Death Punch, and Killswitch Engage.

As far as Mike Portnoy goes, I could care less.

He just hosted a set on Liquid Metal talking about all the things he was doing with Dream Theater. What a crock, I think he saw $$$ when A7X's shitty record went to #1.

He's the drummer from Dream Theater. He's a badass to say the least.

Avenged Sevenfold is the end all of metal bands? Do I have that right?

Give me a dollar.

It was a joke. I actually enjoyed some of their older stuff but the stuff they're putting out isn't for me. Sucks too, because the musicians have talent. I think the frontman has ruined it for them. Money is money though. If I was in a band and was told to sell out for a shit-ton of money I'd do it in a heartbeat. Maybe just do what you really want to do in a side project of sorts.

Portnoy was playing w/ A7X on Friday. He made playing those songs look REALLY easy. I thought it was a pretty good show

Dream Theater has made more money than Avenged Sevenfold probably will ever make. But for right now, Avenged Sevenfold probably makes more. The thing is, Portnoy has been more about musicality more than money, and his resume proves it. Joining that band of losers just drags him down. He still hasn't commented on whether or not he'll become their full time drummer, but it's looking that way to me.
