Gotta say one thing that I've been an avid fan of Dream Theater since i was in high school, and I've just got the news from Dream Theater's notification on facebook regarding this great news. Article is as of below.
Rhythm Magazine out of the UK took a poll of its readers for the 50 greatest drummers of all time. As Mike said:
"When I saw the October 2009 issue of UK's Rhythm Magazine with the '50 Greatest Drummers of All Time' reader's poll on the cover, I must admit I was curious to open it up and see if I had made the Top 50...
Well, after quickly scanning through the 40's, 30's and 20's and not seeing my name, I was beginning to sadden that perhaps I didn't make the cut.... : (
But then I read on and was surprised to eventually find myself all the way at the top of the list at #5!
Thank you to all the drummers that voted me into such a prestigious poll....
I am truly flattered and honored to be held in such high regard with some of my greatest drumming heroes!
Thanks for all the love, : )
The Top 5 were:
1. John Bonham
2. Buddy Rich
3. Keith Moon
4. Neil Peart
5. Mike PortnoyCongrats to Mike Portnoy for being recognized in what he love to do and being the virtuosic musician that he has always been. Kudos to Mike!!!
And since it's about drumming, wanted to share you this video on drumming editing if you haven't watch it yet... It's one of those most viewed videos on Youtube... Enjoy...
