does anyone know what solar system they are from? my theory is this.... they exist to make me feel like i suck! just kidding! but seriously, does anyone else out there ever wonder HOW THE HELL THEY DO IT? it's highly unusual to have 5 guys that are so extremely gifted to be able to do what they do without ego's tearing them apart after the 1st or 2nd cd. granted being a guitarist myself, john petrucci floored me from the start, but as i really got into them, video tapes and all, i find it just as flooring to watch each individual doing his thing. RIDICULOUSLY, SICKENINGLY, MAKES ME WANNA SELL MY GUITARLY, BRILLIANT BAND!
.....me being a fan isn't too obvious, is it?
