Re: Mike Portnoy
I received two MP dvd's:
Drums of Thought and Drumavarium.
Neither are instructional dvd's. Both are really cool drum-cam videos that show "the making of" albums. Mike even plays his amber Tama acrylic (Bonzo) kit.
It's funny to see Mike clean shaven with short hair. After years of long hair and goatee's like the wildman drummer, now he looks like "Bob " that you go bowling with.
I must admit, I like Train of thought and his drum dvd for that album *much* more than octavarium.
Both are entertaining, nonetheless with isolated drum-only tracks.
