About Dream Theater:
If you like progressive music, Dream Theater have been kicking some major butt since their inception and you must lose no time checking them out.

However, Mike Portnoy left the band in 2010 and was replaced by Mike Mangini in 2010. Apart from the founders, the band has two more members: Jordan Rudess and James LaBrie.
John Petrucci – Guitar
John Myung – bass
James LaBrie – vocals
Jordan Rudess – keys
Mike Mangini – Drums
