I was painting this weekend and I was just putting on music that struck me - some Flying Colors, some Neal Morse, some Transatlantic - and it dawned on me that I could just make a "Portnoy Playlist" and be done with it.  Blackmore is by far my favorite musician and has been since 1982 or so, but I think I probably listen to more "Portnoy" than any musician in my collection (and I have about 1,500 CDs).
I would classify that list as Neal Morse, not Mike Portnoy.

But that's just me.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Well, to be fair, Portnoy has probably done more albums than just about any other musician in your (or anybody's) collection.  :lol

Well it sounds like The Winery Dogs is on hold for a couple of years. I'm okay with that as I much prefer Flying Color and Neal Morse.

Opposite for me. FC never did anything for me, and they're not going to tour down here. While WD is hit or miss, they have enough very good music to put on one helluva good show which they seem to bring to Dallas twice per tour. I'll miss seeing them.

With that said, after the last show down here (end of the last tour) I kind of started to think Kotzen probably isn't going to be a longterm thing, so I'm not hugely surprised.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Just watched a pretty interesting interview with MP done by the official DT fan club.

I'll add that to my Watch Later pile. Thanks for the link.
