Re: Mike Portnoy
All I can say is he is an incredible drummer. If you dont like his drumming or the band, you cant deny that he is a great drummer. And the band is amazing. Some stuff can get old, but as a whole it is incredible to see how tight and in sync the band is.
Mike is a master of odd times. Like him or not what he does is very challenging and exciting to watch/listen to IMO. And has taken years of dedication to learn.
