Issue 59 of Prog Magazine features an extensive and in-depth interview with Dream Theater founding member, John Petrucci. The guitarist opens up about Mike Portnoy, staying in shape, being a college drop-out and what would Rush do.
According to Petrucci, "There are iconic bands out there who we still look up to, you. You could be sitting there, trying to make a decision and think, Would Geddy do that?"
"I think it's the kind of band we are, people do what to see how are these guys. That's why we've been successful touring all these years, people want to see what we represent musically, it brings people out, they want to see it face to face, our fans want to be part of that experience."
