Dream Theater's Nerve-Racking Process

05/11/2011
.
(Rock News Desk) New Dream Theater drummer Mike Mangini says he was delighted when the band asked him to audition then worried when he was told he was up against six world-class names for the role.

Once he'd auditioned he felt physically sick while others also made their bid to land the job he wanted. And he's relieved his hearing problems didn't make matters worse when it came to the grueling session itself.

Mangini, 48, has previously played with Annihilator, Extreme and Steve Vai, along with being DT singer James LaBrie's solo bandmate and a well-known session artist. He was chosen to replace Mike Portnoy in the prog metal band last year, but his name was only revealed ten days ago after a series of videos were released showing each candidate in action. more on this story
