Re: Mike Portnoy
A very good drummer, Dream Theater is one of my favourite Metal bands. When i first listened DT i couldn't believe how difficult and complex the music was. I was totally shocked. Then I kind of internalized everything this awesome drummer was playing on his tracks and it wasn't THAT hard. I love his DVD's, is always refreshing to see him play.
Not even on my Top 10, but it was a drummer that used to influence strongly in my playing, now not anymore.
Drumming is Life. FUNK ON.
