I've had the pleasure of taking private lessons from Mr. Mangini. He has earned his new post. Congrats, Mike!

Just heard the new Dream Theater single. This album is the second with Mike but the first on which he is writing his own drum parts.

I am just so happy for Mike, he earned everything he got and he is the perfect drummer for this band.

Of course, he lets some killer fills rip near the end on this relatively "radio friendly" first single off the record.

I like his stuff a lot. One thing that bothered me about the song that I didn't want to make a whole thread about- anybody else think his snare tone just kinda lacks character? It usually sounds fine, but this one really just sounds... bad to me. Like an extremely low-tuned drum with a bunch of dampening on it. I'm just not a fan of that. The song is fine, hopefully the multiple suites on the album break into more progressive territory.

Mike's brand new 2-DVD tutorial is out now. Looks interesting.

Terrific 23 minute drum solo at a Poland clinic...

(His DVD is cool, too - got it recently. And seen the man live at a German drum event a few weeks ago.)

I just watched on the tube the Dream Theater auditions. Mike is playing on a different plane than the rest of us. speed is one thing but combined with the rest, he is truly a great drummer.

Holy crap- if you really listen to what is happening with "The Enemy Inside"- it's an amazing drum track.
The way the guy changes time sigs and throws out insane fill is just cool. He has to be one of the top prog guys playing today.

Very true, this guy is amazing at what he does technically.

I read an article on him in DRUM (or MD) where he went on to say people of certain cultures do not understand odd-times. Hmmm, interesting, I guess he hasn't done much traveling or studying world cultures. After reading that (and a few other 'legendary' articles) and being disgusted by it, I thought, OK, amazing drummer but I will now refer to him as Mike Mangina.

Did he say people of all other cultures or certain cultures don't understand odd-times? You seem to imply the latter which is not necessarily inconsistent with having a world view.

His comments might also imply that persons of a particular background that are even located in the U.S. may lack sensitivity to odd-times.

All this is to say that Mike's comments may have been more nuanced and worldly than you give him credit for.

Maybe I did misunderstand it so I'll look for the article in my archives. However, I remember while I was reading it I was thinking he hasn't had much exposure to African or East Asian cultures, which was where I believe it was referenced.
