    We’re A Happy Family

    ME, MOM & MICKEY!!
    ME, MAX & MELLO!!

    Sitting here it seems
    A never ending scene
    Running out of magazines
    Living in Quarantine

    We can’t see our friends
    When will this ever end??
    I cant just pretend
    The curve will never mend

    Max is playing games
    The Cats are just the same
    Mello’s sleeping late
    Mickey thinks its great

    Mommy’s on the couch
    Watching Netflix
    We’re all just getting by
    Selling Daddy’s sticks

    [I am a huge fan-what can I say? :)]
    The great Mike Portnoy (truly my favorite musician/drummer-such an inspiration) offers excellent comments on NOT doing a book and some sweet news about John Myung ????6/17/2020
    (4th Cameo-so far! You are the Sir Paul of Prog Metal!) Mike, please do the Vince Palamara thing-two questions: have you ever thought of penning an autobiography? Do you keep in touch with John Myung? You're #1-you're my favorite musician/drummer!!
    Note: Mike had previously confirmed his get-together with John Myung from 12/31/19 on 1/1/2020 on his Facebook Mike Portnoy official (fan) page ????

    To my shock and amazement, this video has spawned several articles!

    I’m sorry if this video pisses some of you off...but sadly this is America in 2020 and it pisses me off too.
    This a song written by a man who not only wrote songs about peace, love and hope (“All You Need Is Love”, “Give Peace A Chance”, “Imagine”) but also used his voice to speak up against racism, injustice and encouraged people to rise up (“Revolution”, “Come Together” and this song) If this song or video pisses you off, remember I am only holding up a mirror to what is happening in this country right now...if you don’t like what you see, please use that anger, passion and longing for change to vote in November...
