Dream Theater - Not above the law

How did Dream Theater get the band name - Dream Theater MontereyMetal band that was inaugurated as Majesty (a name that, because of legal wrangling - perhaps because of the existence of a German metal band of the same name - was abandoned) and now performs as Dream Theater, although the original Majesty logo has always persisted in the band's imagery.

The new name was a suggestion of the father of frontman and guitarist John Petrucci (one of the best shredders ever), who drew John's attention to a - now closed to the public - cinema in Monterey that had Dream Theater on its front in hippie letters.

Active: 1985-present, USA
