We are truly fans. We hope your stay will be as good as your second album. Best regards, Aleksandra Zblewska Guest Relations."

Petrucci took a picture of the note and posted it on Instagram, writing in an accompanying message: "I can't tell whether to take this as a compliment or an insult!" He also added a winking face emoji.
