I'm usually ok with musicians hating other musicians like the Dave Mustaine and Metallica incident, and there's the DragonForce and Trivium thing, although that was wasn't real, but Mastodon went too far by calling Dream Theater gay and that.
After seeing the Some Kind of Monster documentary I'd say Dave was probably more upset at himself, and jealous (he states if he could go back and change things he would much rather still be a member of Metallica today) than angry at the band itself.
Anyway, to stay on topic... the comments Mastodon made are really just laughable. I've actually seen this with a lot of bands. I just went and saw a local band play and they were bashing a bunch of big bands (Supernova and Metallica to name a few). It's just an ego thing, there really isn't any substance behind it... jealousy in most cases. Honestly, even if you aren't a fan of Dream Theater, there's not many people who could say they don't appreciate how amazing they are as musicians, and if they can, they're probably kidding themselves or know nothing of music. There's no personal bias there.. I swear.. HONEST.
I really wish I could see them in concert. It's funny, when I listen to my iPod, I usually have it on shuffle because I get sick of listening to just one band or similar stuff for too long. Yet, I have no problem going to artists and listening to just Dream Theater songs for hours. Also, Myung is totally a sexy little girl. I mean, what? FUCK.
