Why Not Get Portnoy behind the kit for Fates??
Makes perfect symmetry.. I mean sense. Mike joined OSI because he wanted to play with Jim and Kevin's controlling behavior drove him away.
It would probably be the kick in the a** that everyone needs!!
Ugh, I don't like the sound of this. Call me crazy, but Portnoy's drumming has *never* done anything for me - he's talented, sure, but he sounds so damn mechanical and lifeless...
If I had my choice of drummers for Fates Warning (other than Zimmerman or Zonder, of course), I'd probably like to hear them do an album with John Macaluso. His work on ARK's Burn the Sun and Fool's Game's Reality Divine is fucking amazing.
Jarzombek is awesome, too, though, so I'm perfectly happy with the current lineup. I just hope Frank Aresti is on the album.
