Dream Theater’s New Drummer – Mike Mangini

Dream Theater finally announced their new drummer, and I’m thrilled that it’s Mike Mangini. Mangini plays with fire, soul and technical skill in a way that few can.

If Mike Portnoy had to leave, I’m happy Mangini is is successor.

Mangini has a ton of videos on YouTube that show his drum smashing insanity, but this Discovery Channel bit does the best job of demoing the man’s range and skill… Plus it’s got some geeky information on the physics and biology of drumming.

I can’t wait to hear Dream Theater’s new album, Mangini’s presence should really change up the dynamic in a positive way.
