Mike Portnoy Talks Unusual Song On New Neal Morse Album

Neal Morse

(Prog) Mike Portnoy admits he was surprised when Neal Morse wanted to include drug-inspired lyrics on the forthcoming The Neal Morse Band double-album, A Similitude Of A Dream.

The drummer says he took over singing on track Makes No Sense, as Morse's vocals and melodies weren't "rocking" or "aggressive" enough in the original demo.

He recalls in a new video: "I ended up singing him this new pattern. Then Neal wrote lyrics and gave it back to me to sing.

"I found it really strange that Neal wrote this lyric, 'This isn't who you are - let's smoke a bowl.'"

He adds: "Neal does not do drugs. I found that a very unusual line for him to write. I was like, 'Are you sure you want me to sing that?' But it's all about the story for him. He's immersed in the story. That's his department." Read more watch the interview here.
