Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci was interviewed by CheckSound TV when the band played Portugal in late February, and you can see the video of that conversation now above. In the clip, Petrucci talks about attending the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles (the band was nominated for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance, for "On the Backs of Angels," from their latest album, A Dramatic Turn of Events); opening their live sets with "Bridges in the Sky" from the new album; how the live sets have changed on this tour versus previous tours; and much more.
