      - "Skype" writing with Flying Colors = awesome
      - MP has the trademark for ProgNation - interesting! What about a ProgNation with Transatlantic and Flying Colors!?!?!

          Give Kotzen 30 mins solo.
          Then Winery Dogs an hour.
          Then Alpha Rev 30 minutes
          Then Flying Colours an hour.
          Then Transatlantic an hour and a half.

              That'd be cool except that MP would probably pass out from exhaustion.
              Did anyone notice that there's a Q from Derek Sherinian? That was rather cool =).

                  It really boggles my mind that someone follows Twitter and when they have the chance to ask MP a question they ask him who it was that died in Iron Maiden and if he was a current memeber.  I'm sorry but some people are just morons.
                   
                  Once again, thanks for taking the time to do this Mike and also to post it.  I always enjoy reading them.

                    MP should have  given the up or down on the  "Do you hate Indiana" question!
                     
                    Presto is better than many of the records Rush we're doing in that phase. Strange choice, imo.

                      I like Paul Sommer’s festival line-up. Also we have yet another reason why Derek Sherinian is awesome. And Fish I would be with you, but I don’t spend a whole lot of time there anymore, so I don’t care as much but it’d still be cool. Main thing is we need FC to hit Chicago next time. I'll totally make that trip. NYC...maybe...
                       
                      Judge Synder: Itchy & Scratchy Studios will pay a restitution of $800 billion...though that amount will probably come down a bit on appeal.

                          The people asking when he's coming back to X country are annoying the hell out of me! I never seem to see when MP is on twitter to do these...

                            most interesting thing...MP having a studio in his house. yes, it's commonplace for most musicians these days, but he himself said he preferred a theatre instead. wonder when he changed his mind...

                              Thanks Mike!
                               
                              Interesting choice with Presto, but then I was listening to When Dream and Day Unite a ton more than I was Presto back then.
                               
                               
                              When Dream and Day Unite was one of those life changing albums for me. I'd found my new favorite band.
