funny how religiously listening to the entire albums based only the fact that the lineup is perfect, can lead to many different places! Falling Into Infinity was (and still is) probably the biggest influence on me in terms of drumming. Lines In The Sand 2nd verse and chorus showed me that I can utilize my hands in the notes "in between" without making it a mess, while playing a beat. What you hear on all of my records and see me play accents with my left hand, comes from the passion for Portnoy's drumming on 90s albums. before Dream Theater, I was pretty much straight groove rock/metal drummer. Doing accents on the hi hat like in the bridge, I also learned from them. I always knew how to play those licks, but I never been interested in playing those till I heard it in the "right" setting. Still to this day, it's my fav Portnoy's recording performance on the album, mainly because it was tracked live, and no complicated production was involved. Images & Words were trigged (thanks to Prater), Awake, A Change Of Seasons were compressed with reverb added (early 90s style), the albums after FII were either punched in, either heavily compressed. Can't say enough great things about A Change Of Seasons lineup and 90s DT in general.
What an awesome show last night with the G3 Experience! Phil Collen (Def Leppard), John Petrucci (Dream Theater) and Joe Satriani totally nailed at the Fox Theater in Oakland. Also, what a beautiful venue!! They put up an unbelievable performance and we were lucky that they included a 4th guitar in the mix, Neil Schon (Journey). So happy that I got to see these amazing musicians🎶🎸 #G3#JoeSatriani#JohnPetrucci#PhilCollen#music#livemusic#guitar#show#liveperformance#FoxTheater
