Happy New Year, friends. We're back at it with none other than drum colossus Mike Portnoy, formerly of Dream Theater and now playing with rock supergroup Sons of Apollo.

Mike is an elite musician, widely considered to be one of greatest drummers in the world. He's also a great guy and a great guest. During our conversation we geek out on Bowie, KISS, and Radiohead, and he shares his experiences playing drums for Twisted Sister, his theory about Rush fans, the recent spate of rock and roll deaths, and how Dream Theater was like a musical Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. 


Portnoy's playlist:

The Beatles - A Day in the Life

The Who - We're Not Gonna Take It/See Me Feel Me/Listening To You

David Bowie - Space Oddity

Yes - Heart of the Sunrise

Radiohead - Paranoid Android

Always enjoy listening to Mike talk about his favorite music. He describes them in such a way he makes me want to listen to those I haven't heard! That is what makes him the amazing musician, composer and creator he is. He not only truly loves music, he LIVES it every moment. Thank you for this awesome interview!
