Dream Theater former drummer, backing vocalist, and co-founder Mike Portnoy shared his admiration for all The Beatles members.
Mike Portnoy is currently participating in different bands such as The Neal Morse Band and the supergroups named Flying Colors, Transatlantic, The Winery Dogs, Liquid Tension Experiment, Metal Allegiance, and Sons of Apollo.
Portnoy is known for being a huge fan of the Beatles and John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Plastic Ono Band. Apart from these bands, he is also part of The Beatles tribute supergroup Yellow Matter Custard including Neal Morse, Paul Gilbert, and Matt Bissonette.
He shared his excitement about getting the new Plastic Ono Band Deluxe Box Set. The more he examined and listened again and again, the more he was amazed by the greatness of it. He thanked the members of The Beatles and Plastic Ono Band for giving them the opportunity to witness this music history after fifty years.
Here’s what he wrote:
“I know I posted on Friday how excited I was to get the new Plastic Ono Band Deluxe Box Set, but now digging in I’m losing my mind! It’s everything I hoped for!! The “Evolution Mixes” are the most revealing…
Hearing John, Ringo, and Klaus working through each song are so intimate you feel like you’re in the studio with them! It’s also a real glimpse as to what made Ringo as great as he is… Hearing him interact with John, trying different approaches on each take, his subtlety & nuances are what makes him such a drum hero to me.
Thank you, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Sean Ono Lennon, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voormann for finally sharing this music history with us 50 years later!”
