The new issue of Rhythm, which hit’s shelves Monday (although some luky places may even be able to pick this up today!) has a world exclusive interview with the Mike Mangini- the newly recruited drummer for DREAM THEATER!
In the staggering 9 page feature, Mike gives us the inside story on how he landed the Dream Theater gig. From his US home studio, he talks preserving Portnoy’s legacy, creating his own and the grueling audition process. Rhythm also take a look around his frankly massive set-up, take tips on playing odd time signatures and delve deep into Mangini’s technique behind the kit!!And if that wasn’t enought, the mag also takes a look at the six guys that missed out on the much-coveted spot.
We think you’ll agree that if you’re a Dream Theater fan, a drummer or a combination of the two, this is the issue for you!
As for the new Dream Theater release, we hope to have more on that for you coming soon…
