The Metal Podcast Episode #52 – Mike Portnoy

Mike Portnoy guests this week to talk about his new project Sons of Apollo featuring bassist Billy Sheehan, keyboardist Derek Sherinian, vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, and guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal. We talk about the idea stemming from talking about old Dream Theater, we discuss how the recording process took place, and how you should be making music, his need to be a band leader not a follower, how he works with differing personalities in so many groups, what kind of person he is off stage, why his wife hates the TV shows and movies he loves, and find out the story behind the New Years Eve photo he took with ex-bandmate John Petrucci sparking all kinds of rumors about DT and stoking the fires of a reunion with fans.
