In a recent Tweet from Mike Portnoy formerly of Dream Theater and current project Adrenaline Mob asked a question about The Guns N' Roses classic "November Rain" where he got a reply from Matt Sorum formerly of Guns And Roses.

First off Mike Portnoy is D!@#. I really don't have time for egos and this rock start attitude that sometimes I have to come across.

In Mike Portnoy's tweet he states:

"November Rain is an all-time classic song... but why on Earth did Matt Sorum play the SAME EXACT fill every 4 bars? (23 times, to be exact!)"

I really don't think that Mike Portnoy expected a response from anyone especially the man behind the drums of the song Matt Sorum.

Here is what Matt Sorum Tweeted:

"that fill was Axls idea As a musical phrase that carried on through the trilogy , Don't Cry and Estranged. Those albums UYI 1 n 2 Have sold 20 million combined."

Matt Sorum then Tweeted again:

"remember kids drumming isn't all about fancy drum fills and splash cymbals ask Charlie Watts, Ringo and Phil Rudd"
And finally in this dramatic Titter war Mike Portnoy Tweeted back:

"Agree 1000%!! Ringo is one of my greatest heroes!! No disrespect meant, bro... Just making an observation of that song. Peace! : )"
