Core members John Petrucci, John Myung, and Mike Portnoy met at the Berklee School of Music in Boston. The band formed in 1985 under the name Majesty, but changed to the name Dream Theater in 1988. Portnoy was generally the band's main spokesperson until his departure to join Avenged Sevenfold. He commented that he found this odd considering that he has a tendency to talk about anything and everything EXCEPT Dream Theater.
Their 1992 single "Pull Me Under" the album Images And Words was released as a single and a video. It received substantial airplay on MTV and reached #10 on the Billboard rock charts.
Petrucci and Portnoy joined with session bassist Tony Levin (famous for his work with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson) and keyboardist Jordan Rudess for an instrumental project entitled Liquid Tension Experiment, which would release two albums. Rudess later joined Dream Theater.
