DREAM THEATER are just several weeks shy of starting a massive world tour in support of their new album, A Dramatic Turn Of Events, but the band’s keyboard master, Jordan Rudess, is still buzzing about their recently completed European festival dates – the group’s first with new drummer Mike Mangini.
“It was so great,” says Rudess. “Everybody was incredibly happy. I never realized how much a drummer can change the foundation of a band, but it’s really true. I just want to have Mike Mangini checked to make sure he’s really human, because the things he can do seem totally impossible.”
MusicRadar sat down with Jordan Rudess recently to talk about A Dramatic Turn Of Events. In addition, they discussed new hardware and software he’s working with, along with a certain poll he just won by a huge margin. You can read the full interview over at THIS LOCATION.
