Gavin Harrison, another highly regarded drummer also known for his association with King Crimson and other groups, won “Progressive Drummer Of The Year” for the first time. Similar to Portnoy’s victories in the “Drummer Of The Year” and “Best Metal Drummer” categories, Harrison shared the category with some formidable competition with Portnoy again taking second place, Danny Carey coming in third, Portnoy’s Dream Theater replacement Mike Mangini in fourth and Blake Richardson in fifth place.
