DREAM THEATER PICK UP ‘SPIRIT OF PROG’ AT CLASSIC ROCK AWARDS

Posted on November 4, 2009

Last night saw the annual CLASSIC ROCK awards and our very own DREAM THEATER was honored with the “Spirit Of Prog” achievement award!

The award was presented to Mike Portnoy by Prog legend Rick Wakeman who added that he couldn’t have been happier for it to go to such a worthy recipient (and joked that he was jealous he wasn’t getting it)!

The star studded event was attended by such legends as Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Pete Townshend of The Who, Ron Wood of The Rolling Stones, Brian May of Queen, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Jeff Beck, Paul Rodgers of Bad Company, Iggy Pop, Slash of Guns N Roses, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, Ginger Baker of Cream, Chrissy Hynde of The Pretenders, Carl Palmer of ELP and members of Iron Maiden, Anthrax, Anvil, Marillion, ZZ Top, Uriah Heep and Mott The Hoople.

An initial rundown of the winners can be found HERE.

Dream Theater also was nominated in the “Album Of The Year” category for their latest release ‘Black Clouds & Silver Linings’.
