Happy 50th birthday to Mike Portnoy who was born on 4/20/67. The former Dream Theater drummer and co founder is regarded as one the most technically superior drummers ever. He co-produced six Dream Theater albums with guitarist John Petrucci, starting from Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory through Black Clouds and Silver Linings. From A Change of Seasons onwards, Portnoy had been writing a significant amount of Dream Theater’s lyrics. He is the second youngest person (after Neil Peart) to be inducted into the Modern Drummer’s Hall of Fame, at 37 years of age. Currently Portnoy plays with Flying Colour with Neal and Steve Morse. Let’s check out Portnoy’s recent filmed drum solo from 2014.
