mike portnoy/dream theater
I Idolize Portnoy

he is one of the single greatest drummers EVAR. check out this quick vid.




It may not seem more impressive than alot of other drummers but his technique is PERFECT

and the time signatures are nearly impossible
Agreed Mike is definately a fucking awesome drummer

I love Dream Theater their music is awesome the only things I hate is how Petrucci solos are so hard I can't learn em
I'M A FUCKING METAL HEAD PRIVATE MESSAGE ME!!!
SID IS GAY FOR ME? :O
His drum set is ridiculous.

Yeah he can play good but the rhythm is just ankward and I can't feel the groove in his playing.

There is no need for a ultramega big drumset if the player has some creativity. Music is about creativity right? not about equipment and individual skill. IMO

Stevie Wonder owns this guy in drum bashing.

I could think of a few drummers who are better than Portnoy.

Neal Pert from Rush.


Chester Thompson and Phil Collins


and Terry Bozzio.


Oh,and by the way, this is Bozzio's drum kit.

I think neal pert is a bit over-rated
same with phil collins

tho they are excellent drummers

but THE most over-rated drummer is definately Joey Jordinson



and with Progressive metal, its hard to create a groove considering the time signatures.

I believe in one song mike plays an 8/13 with his hands and a 3/4 with his feet.

I didn't even know 8/13 existed o.0
