Dream Theater will always be the thing I’m most known for. It was twenty-five years of my life and it was something that I poured my heart and soul, blood sweat and tears into. I literally ate, breathed and shat Dream Theater twenty-four/seven for twenty-five years, so regardless of where they go in their career and regardless of where I go in my career, I will always and forever be linked to Dream Theater and that’s fine with me — I’m proud of every song I wrote in that band, every album I recorded in that band, and every show I played with that band. So I have no problem with the fact that I will forever be known as “Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater.” That’s something that will never change. That’s always how it’s gonna be and I’m proud of that. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
