John Petrucci Gives Track-By-Track Breakdown of New Dream Theater Album
Speaking to MusicRadar.com, guitarist John Petrucci gave a track-by-track breakdown of the new Dream Theater album, A Dramatic Turn of Events. You can check out an excerpt from the interview below.
"Going into this album, I felt a tremendous sense of responsibility," said Petrucci. "When Mike Portnoy left the band, I think it put a big question mark in the minds of a lot of fans because they saw him as a very big figure in Dream Theater. So I owed it to those people to show them that everything was grounded, intact and extremely creative within the band."
"As it was the first time I was the sole producer for Dream Theater, it presented a challenge. But I thrive on challenges – I feel as though that’s when I do some of my best work."
