Dream Theater’s New Drummer

There’ve been a bunch of topics that I wanted to post about in April, but just didn’t have the time. Unfortunately, I only posted once throughout April and now it’s already May. Time to play catch up!

First thing’s first. My favorite band, Dream Theater, has a new drummer: Mike Mangini!

After Mike Portnoy left last year, they held auditions with seven world class drummers: Mike Mangini, Virgil Donati, Marco Minnemann, Peter Wildoer, Thomas Lang, Derek Roddy and Aquiles Priester. The entire process was documented in a very cool three part series released on YouTube.

Part 3

Between Mangini’s reaction and the quality of the documentary, I’m incredibly excited to hear the new album.
