One of the greatest and fastest drummers to ever be born, and the current drummer for Dream Theater. Considered to be the inverse of John Petrucci, due to his ability to rupture space and time by playing over a billion notes per second. Like Petrucci, he has limited himself to 2000 notes per second which only causes severe head pains whereas anything more than 2500 notes per second causes the human head to explode, due to the overload of greatness. This being the reason he decided to leave Berklee, because of the student's heads exploding because they thought they were worthy of God. He is also considered one of the best wearers of the heavy metal soul patch, much to the disdain of Jordan Rudess.
