John Sykes Pulls Out of Mike Portnoy Project
MelodicRock.com reports that no official reason has been given for Sykes' departure, but it is understood that a new guitarist will be brought in to the project, along with a yet-to-be-named bass player.
Portnoy isn't exactly looking for work at the moment. In addition to his current band Adrenaline Mob, the drummer also is working with guitarist Steve Morse, multi-instrumentalist Neal Morse of Spock's Beard, Dixie Dregs bass player Dave LaRue and vocalist Casey McPherson (Alpha Rev, Endochine) in a new band called Flying Colors. An album is currently in the recording stage, and is due on March 27. more on this story
