  • let me join the pointless discussion: he's very skilled bassist, no doubts about that, but he's everything but under-rated. He's probably only bassist known by name in general public because of his skills and not simply playing in very popular band.
  • I see we have a Myung expert in our vicinity... v
  • Myung just write the bass lines after the other guys write the whole structure.
  • amazing....AMAZING !!
  • " he didnt wrote the songs u idiot. he just wrote the lyrics. " Most DT songs are credited to all four of them (everyone except LaBrie, that is). According to Rudess they usually arise out of improvised jam sessions, so technically Myung is as responsible for the writing as anyone. And the songs Myung also wrote the lyrics for (as thunder2221 states) are arguably the very best of DT.
  • Amazing and way under-rated bassist. Myung, Dan Briggs and Alex Webster are probably the best bassist we have today and my biggest influences on music. If you like this guy check out some of my works, [artist]James McCallum[/artist] , although these are just freestyle bass track layered over top of each other for fun. still looking for the right band, if you wanna hear me playing all intruments myself please check them out here. www.myspace.com/aboveallmetal
  • He does write songs for Dream Theater, just not often. He wrote Learning to Live, Trial of Tears, Lifting Shadows off A Dream & Fatal Tragedy! All of them classic DT.
  • "He's terribly ugly" I don't see how that's relevant to anything, but yeah, he's a good bass player indeed. And no, I personally don't find him ugly.
