No, it's coming OUT of there. It doesn't go back in until the sequel. :D

Man, I was really hoping you just liked Max Weinberg for who he was. I was a bit let down that it was only 'cuz he drummed for the 'Loaf.
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

Hey now. I respect the work he's done for Bruce and Conan. But I do tend to listen to him more on the albums he did with Meat Loaf, Jim Steinman, and Bonnie Tyler. Bruce writes good songs, but I have trouble listening to them because I don't like his voice. I don't catch Conan too often either because I'm not much of a TV person. But Max is a good guy and a terrific drummer.

Guitar - John Petrucci, and Alex Lifeson (two guitarists with insane musicality in their playing and soloing)
Bass - Victor Wooten
Drums - Neil Peart, or Mike Portnoy (both masters of the instrument but one cannot compare them)
Keyboard - Rick Wakeman
Vocals - Bruce Dickinson

All of these guys kick ass, plus overall they are some pretty level headed musicians so there wouldn't really be any ego problems in the song writing.
