I do too, but that was completely ridiculous, almost to the point where I would barge into his house while he's watching TV, slap the fuck outta him (pull off a Rick James), and then I would finish the show he was watching, for him.

like someone else said earlier it's just a matter of opinion.

Personally, I think Alexi is growing into an Yngwie as far as ego goes. He does think he's a badass musician, and he is, but his style is stale.

As for his image...wow. He has glam roots and it definatly shows but lately he's been trying to look like a little preteen rebel chick.

Actually I HAVE seen both live, but I guess COB could seem challenging to a beginner. You are right there are a million Alexi wannabees just like there were millions of Kurt Kabang wannabes. Although the music may sound a little dated JP had more talent on DT's 1st cd and was still younger than Alexi is now. Don't get me wrong Alexi's got potential he should just watch his mouth until his playing can back it up. Like I said I'll give credit where credit is due. Millions of people go crazy for worthless bands everyday, but that doesn't mean I'm going to give any of those jokes credit. I was about 20 ft from the stage at a COB show and yes they were a snorefest and his playing was off and his vocals were weak.

Did you ever stop for a second and think that maybe something that is insanely technical can have emotional impact? Infact since being an extremely technicaly proficient player opens more doors for you to write different sounding songs. The more advance, the fewer the limitations. Listen to Jason Becker - "Air" or "Serranna" or "Concerto" by Cacophony. Just because there are arpeggios does not mean there isnt a chord progession, because after all arpeggios are just individual notes a chord.

To be honest you sound like a first time listener to death metal. "Waah waah you can't hear whats going on." You hear awhole ot of notes and your brain shuts down and refuses to hear any of the melody involved.

Cool

What Alexi meant by that is that dream theater plays fast and well, but the music itself has no soul. there is no true emotion. He said it was "Not even music, it was sports". which is completley true. The riffs are impossible to play, but they suck because there is no passion in the music. Its not always about playing fast. Sometimes you have to play from the heart, not the mind.
I hope this makes sence to everybody.

I guess their music is impossible (DT) for some people to play.

Obviously enough people like it though. Otherwise they wouln't still be releasing albums. I have Train of Thought by Dream Theatre and I think it shits all over anything that I have heard come off a CoB album.

Petrucci just catches a lot of shit because he can play
and improvise without screwing up. Everyone of course is entitled to their own opinion, but the fact is Petrucci is an accomplished player who's style is very polished and Alexi is not(yet). Maybe in a few years he will be if he is lucky
and isn't forgotten about. Personally, I think his playing is stale rehashed
crap. I haven't heard a single song by COB that even remotely justifies the hype he gets He was in one of the guitar mags recently with one of those betcha can't this licks and I swear I thought it had to be a joke. He played some tapping lick that sounded like it came out of some instructional
book on tapping( like example 1 or something ). Call me a dick I don't care that's my opinion.
