Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci was interviewed by Music Shots Live when the band was on its recent South American tour. Consequently, the questions, which appear as text on the screen in the above video, are in Spanish, so we've translated them for you below (and we only had to resort to Google Translate once!). Follow along as you listen...maybe you'll even learn something!
