It’s time not only for part 3 of the MIKE PORTNOY AND MIKAEL AKERFELDT interviews but also part 4! Yes is seems that the DREAM THEATER and OPETH geezers are a right regular pair of chatterboxes. Check out the interviews below!
In part 3 ‘The Mike’s’ discuss what kind of music influenced them as well as the elements of progressive rock…
And in part 4 ‘The Mike’s’ discuss wanting a festival just for progressive oriented bands, how Opeth and Dream Theater teamed up, and the origin of the Progressive Nation tour (that US tour they are about to do that all us Brit’s are a lil jealous of…)
