(Rock News Desk) Mike Portnoy says he's not in full control of his new band, Adrenaline Mob – and that's just fine with him.
The drummer was well-known for taking charge of every artistic element of former outfit Dream Theater, from song arrangements to artwork, right down to which bands they took on tour with them. But after a year which saw him dramatically quit the band he formed, ask to rejoin only to be refused, and finally surface with Adrenaline Mob following a number of side-projects, Portnoy says he's a new man.
"Yesterday was our first rehearsal and we sounded amazing," He tells MusicRadar. "We recorded our album earlier this year, but we never stood in a circle before and fired up. It was electric – I couldn't believe what was happening before me." more on this story
