      I love this one.  You know you are a talented drummer when you've been playing as long as Mike and you've only had to buy one drum kit yourself.

              ^^^ That screams for a followup question:  "Given, stolen, otherwise?"  Haha.
               
              Some great questions, and great answers, in there.

                In my original response I assumed that Mike only bought one drum kit and he used that until he got endorsed but the more I thought about it, not quite sure that could really be accurate.  If it is accurate than that's awesome, if not than yeah Mike's answer was pretty funny.

                  "Portnoy"

                  “@HarryGarvey: If LTE reformed with the original lineup it would be so amazing” What do you mean "original lineup"? There's only ONE lineup! about 4 hours ago 

                   
                  That's why I decided to make a more non-embarrassing every time MP decides to have Q&A via Twitter.

                    No Rush for favorite album of 2012, that's interesting. I thought a hard rocking, Rush concept album would be right up his alley. Nothing against Mike, just surprised.

                            Yes, he was. And he, quite unreasonably, took some abuse for it, too. Perhaps that's why he included Petrucci this time.
                             
                            For me, it's a given that he respects Petrucci's work and he doesn't need to include him on such a list.
