Sorry not being a fan of Indian food i cant really help you there, but the place is packed with restaurants of all kinds so I'm sure you wont have to walk too far to find one.  :D

I remember when I went to the Spock's + Frost gig two years ago there was a kebab place quite near to the venue and it was very good! :D

It is quite cool, even though the game is not that easy. :)

I just heard this on the man's own forum. I never ever thought I'd see the day this happened. I want to hear from the other guys in the band now

From DT's website:

To all of our loyal fans and friends: It is with profound sadness -- regret -- we announce that Mike Portnoy, our lifelong drummer and friend, has decided to leave Dream Theater. Mike's stature in the band has meant the world to all of us professionally, musically, and personally over the years. There is no dispute: Mike has been a major force within this band.

While it is true that Mike is choosing to pursue other ventures and challenges, we can assure you that Dream Theater will continue to move forward with the same intensity -- and in the same musical tradition -- that you have all helped make so successful, and which is truly gratifying to us.

Fans and friends: File this episode under "Black Clouds and Silver Linings." As planned, we begin recording our newest album in January 2011, and we'll follow that with a full-on world tour. "The Spirit Carries On."

All of us in Dream Theater wholeheartedly wish Mike the best on his musical journey. We have had a long and meaningful career together. It is our true hope that he finds all he is looking for, and that he achieves the happiness he deserves. He will be missed.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Avenged Sevenfold's number one album had a lot to do with this too.

From MP's Facebook:

I BEG of the fans to please NOT hold A7X responsible for MY decision...they are just as shocked as you guys..I had been contemplating this and desiring a "break" (not split) as long ago as last year...everything else is fully explained in the press release...thank you all for your support and understanding...this is th...e hardest thing I've ever done... : (

You know what, I think he's done a good thing. DT was sucking too much blood from him and I think that changing members has always meant new blood to the new songs of DT. I wish all the best to him and I'm quite curious to see what DT will be up to without Mike. :)

Today I'm in Rome for a meeting,
And I'm stuck in West Yorks with no heating
What a glamorous life!
Join up; be my wife!
I should have known, we'd be meeting!


I really need some inspiration
