Mike Portnoy Says New Group is Not A Solo Project

(Rock News Desk) Mike Portnoy says he has no interest in being defacto frontman of his new band Adrenaline Mob and he didn't want the role in former outfit Dream Theater either.

The drummer stunned fans by quitting the prog metal outfit he'd former last year. In the aftermath singer James LaBrie suggested their new lineup, featuring sticksman Mike Mangini, was more balanced "without anybody in the background trying to grab the limelight when maybe they should just be grooving." But Portnoy rejects the idea he fought with LaBrie for top billing, and insists he's equally happy working behind Symphony X frontman Russell Allan in Adrenaline Mob.

The drummer tells Noisecreep: "I absolutely am not the defacto frontman in the Mob. That title surely goes to Russell, who's one of the best frontmen in the business. I'm just happy to be part of the band, and not necessarily leading it." more on this story
