Dream Theater Have More Musical Freedom Without Mike Portnoy

(Rock News Desk) Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess says the band feel free to express themselves musically now Mike Portnoy is no longer part of the outfit. And he describes the drummer as "the Dream Theater police."

The band are poised to release A Dramatic Turn of Events, their first album after self-confessed control freak Portnoy suddenly quit the band last year. He soon asked to rejoin, but new drummer Mike Mangini had been given the job by then.

Rudess also says the band decided not to bring in a producer for the album and instead leave those duties to guitarist John Petrucci, who'd co-produced with Portnoy in the past. more on this story
