    I'm kinda friends with John Petrucci and John Myung, as they grew up in my town and we went to the same high school, so it's pretty exciting that they have finally reached this level. I'll be watching Sunday night.

    This is the song that was nominated:

    Never a Marshall in sight though.

    It is always nice to see professional musicians play.
    This is a favourite of mine.

    They've done covers of (almost)entire albums. They do covers better than any other band.


    These are just a few of the ones I vaguely remember seeing somewhere.
    Master of Puppets
    Piece of Mind
    Number of the Beast
    Dark Side of the Moon
    2112


    Back in the 80's they were really into Iron Maiden.

    I turned John Petrucci on to the Dregs, it changed his life, and his musical direction.
    Here's their cover of a masterpiece Dregs tune with Dregs violinist Jerry Goodman guest.

    I made made tape copies of all Dregs albums for them back in the late 80s right before they left for Berkely.

    Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment are so badass it's not even funny.

    EDIT: Except Petrucci needs to Marshall it up a little. I love the Mesa players, like Andy Timmons as well, but maybe mix in a little Marshall tone.

    Here's the trademark instrumental they've played at every gig since high school. The name of the tune is Ytse Jam...Majesty spelled backwards. Majesty was the original name of the band.

    They've always been seriously into Rush too.

    Only die-hard rush fanatics will know this.

    I miss Geddy's voice though.
