DREAM THEATRE & PAYNE


Just bought the new Dream theatre(haven't listen to it yet), and I saw that Bruce Payne was involved in there too.
Maybe we'll see if all the bad things were said about him on this(and the THS forum)can be verified with the new DT...

Re: DREAM THEATRE & PAYNE


Let's look at it this way,
can you name me a better manager.
He has his finger on a pulse that nobody I can think of
who is better suited for the job.
Peter Grant he is not
but I don't think he is that far behind.
Purple need not be the flavor of the week,
and can care less about any market that does not welcome them,because they don't need them.
Bruce is as smart as a whip and has a Harvard degree.
People often blame him when it is actually the label's
marketing department that is to blame and there is no
controlling that from a management angle.
The promoters and marketers are fickle and balancing them is quite a difficult task and it's a wonder it get's done at all.
With the current state of rock and roll not being fashionable and all,maybe someone can tell me who is better fit for the job?Since it has very little to do with who the manager is, as to why they are not on every dinner plate in the world. emoticon
Since I have been in management myself for year's now
I happen to know that it can often be the who to blame
section and it deserves better than taking 100%
responsibility for every thing that happens.

When someone say's to me "give me a break" I often answer
back with a resounding,
"I gave you a break when I hired you" emoticon

Human nature dictates that I need to point a finger.

Tool is a great band, and has a lyric that goes 'I'm the man, your the man... so you can point that finger up yer ass' or something like that.

I want Purple to be huge, but I'm living in the past.

Obviously, Purple and Payne are happy together. Payne was brought into Purple via Rainbow, and Payne and Purple stuck.

Bananas is a great album and hopefully a U.S. tour is coming!

I could be wrong but I swear I can remember
opening my gatefold sleeve of CTTB and seeing
the name Bruce A Payne in there. emoticon

Re: DREAM THEATRE & PAYNE


Surely even Bruce Payne couldn't destroy Dream Theater?

Those guys have their heads screwed on the right way and if Brucy doesn't deliver, he's sure to get the boot. Leave it too Petrucci and Portnoy.

Seems DP don't give Payne 'attention' he needs.
