MIKE PORTNOY

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Mike Portnoy is an American drummer, best known as the former drummer and co-founder of progressive metal / band Dream Theater. He resigned from the band in 2010 after 25 years. Nowadays, Portnoy is known for many other bands and projects. He is a founding member of Transatlantic, a progressive rock “super-group” which also includes former Spock’s Beard keyboardist / vocalist Neal Morse. He is also a founding member of the bands Flying Colours and Winery Dogs. Portnoy has also recorded and/or toured with, among others, Adrenaline Mob, Overkill, G3 and Avenged Sevenfold. When I did this interview in June at Sweden Rock, Portnoy was on tour with the Winery Dogs and the legendary Twisted Sister with whom he has played as the tour drummer from May 2015 onward. There is always a lot going on in the world of Mike Portnoy, and here’s what the man had to tell us about his ongoing activities and immediate future plans.

SWEDENROCK 2016

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY ARTO LEHTINEN AND MARKO SYRJALA

Once again here we are again as the Finnish Metal-Rules.com two-man-team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock.  The  2016 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock as usual. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years always being sold out like this year. However, it took a bit longer until all the tickets were gone this year. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. It was sad to see the final show by Twisted Sister, but of course fabulous to see a whole bunch of other bands. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!
