Default Re: Mike Portnoy

I love Mike Portnoy. His style is very complex and textured. I know there are better drummer than him, for example Virgil Donati but they play diferent styles and can't be compared.

I see Portnoy as my musical father. When I started drumming the drummer that really shocked me was him. I studied him a LOT, I have all of his videos. He has done a lot for me and many people. My creativity grew a lot when listening to DT.

I don't think tere's a more tecnical rock band than DT. There are a lot of good ones but not better than DT. They have a special quimistry and flow that mekes the so special.
