The iconic member of Dream Theater, Mike Portnoy posted new photos on his official Instagram page and shared the astonishing moments he had with other iconic stars, Adam Jones and Will Calhoun.

He also shared the details of how did he take this photo with these two icons and wrote this:

“Absolutely BLOWN AWAY by tonight’s Tool show. Have seen em many times since the early 90’s, but absolutely floored by what they have evolved to.
Insane to see a band like this selling out 15,000 seat arenas playing 10 minute epics of polyrhythmic odd time signatures with a completely captivated audience without a single cell phone out!

They are truly everything a modern Prog artist like myself could possibly ever strive to achieve…ultimate artistic musical expression with a *hugely* successful commercial platform to express it within…

I must admit I’m partially proud and partially jealous…but ultimately am so grateful for them carrying the progressive torch soooo strongly to a new generation!

And a personal THANKS to Danny Carey for the great hospitality & wonderful night and a Happy Birthday to Justin Chancellor 🎂😎

(And good to see ya @benweinman & @willcalhoundrum 👊)
