Dream Theater's New Drummer!

Well, it was announced last year that Mike Portnoy, the drummer for Dream Theater, 
decided to leave the band. (Read Mike's and Dream Theater's statements here)

So Dream Theater embarked upon a quest for a new drummer. Interestingly, they decided to film the auditioning process, and created a documentary and released it in installments this week. Watch their journey here with the new drummer revealed at the end!

Here are the songs they had the drummers audition with:

The Dance of Eternity
A Nightmare to Remember
The Spirit Carries On

Read the interview Mike did with Modern Drummer Magazine on his new future with Dream Theater.

Read the Interviews that Drum Magazine conducted with Mike.

Read the interview that Music Radar conducted with John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess 
about their ordeal as a band in search of a new drummer and the future of Dream Theater.

Watch the video below to see some of Mike's previous work 
as well as how he attained his title of World's Fastest Drummer. 
 (and a cute commercial he was in demonstrating his mad skills)
