Mike Portnoy Bored With Drum Solos

(Prog) Mike Portnoy admits he's become bored with playing drum solos and he'd rather use the time to play another song for fans. He believes he's grown out of taking over the show himself, and says he only performs solos because of pressure from others.

Portnoy tells MusicRadar: "I get that not only from the fans but from a lot of my bandmates. The guys go, 'Oh man, you've got to do a solo,' and it's like, 'I don't know I'd rather do a song in that five minutes.

"I'm not interested in drum solos any more. This is my personal taste as a listener and a player: I think I've grown out of it." It's not the first time he's fallen out of love with that part of a show.
