From MP's facebook: MP: There's a HUGE difference about trying to "grab the limelight" and being an entertaining "performer" on stage... and some comments he liked: Labrie's mouth is only exceeded by his ego and both eclipse his talent as a vocalist by a longshot. Has he seen some of that early live footage? Can you say pitchy? He's always been the weakest link in the band and correct me if I'm wrong, he wasn't there at the bands inception. So how is he all of a sudden the spokesperson? Oh yes, the dreaded lead-singer syndrome. Public perception makes him the leader? HA! Mike's role in Dream Theater is at the core. Labrie's role in the band is pure luck..yes, he was lucky to be on stage with such stellar talent. He wasn't ever in their league of talent and never will be, he's lucky to be along for the ride. He should keep his mouth shut and preferrably while the band is on stage also... and: Is it me or does JL have a serious case of front man envy. It is quite clear that JL felt insecure or upstaged as a singer with MP behind him. Its odd really because that feeling is usually between the guitar player and the singer, (Van Halen), but this reeks of some bad feelings.
