Re: Dream Theater's new drummer is MIKE MANGINI
Well, I'll have to download some Dream Theater songs to find out why Thomas Lang would even consider auditioning. I love DrummerWorld, and enjoy watching most of the drummers, can't get enough of Weckl, Jo Jo Mayer, Stanton Moore, Gadd, Tommy Igoe, Tony Williams, Vinnie, Peter Erskine, Steve Smith, David Garibaldi, Chambers, Bruford, Gavin Harrison even Neil Peart as long as he's not playing jazz, but every time I try to listen to Mike Portney, he just bores me. Maybe it's the videos, but he sounds like he's banging on garbage cans. I just don't get it, but I'm seeing all these great drummers here talking about Dream Theater on this forum, so I really need to investigate. I am 44, and grew up listening to Jeff Porcaro, John Bonham, and Steve Gadd, so maybe I just don't get the whole prog rock scene of today. The auditions looked pretty impressive, but I think if Buddy were alive, he would say, I saw alot of acrubatics, but didn't see any drumming.
