Mike Portnoy

Recommended Posts

I don't know what's up with this guy. I was playing Rush in the dressing room and said they had the greatest drummer of all time. Then some guy said no way man he sucks. Mike Portnoy all the way. What the hell? Of the songs I've heard he definetly isn't anything special. Am I missing something, because this is not the first time I've heard that.

Mike Portnoy is Dream Theater's drummer by the way.

He's pretty talented, just listen to Metropolis or any song from Images & Words, & you too will be amazed, Guaranteed :drummer:

I don't know about comparing him to Peart though, there's a significant amount of difference in playing style.

I believe Neil Peart once said that he thinks the best drummer around is Dave Weckyl.

So, it's all a matter of opinion, my friend. You can't argue "who's the best" in rock music, everyone's got a different point of view. You can obviously make a good case for Peart, but that doesn't make it so.
