Dream Theater's New Drummer

Dream Theater,  an American Progressive metal band was formed in 1985 under the name Majesty by John Petrucci, John Myung, and Mike Portnoy.  Their Drummer Mike Portnoy's departure from the band had left millions of fan's heart shattered. The band of which Mike was a key member had no drummer after Mile left. So the band deciced to audition seven World's best drummers and out of which Michael Mangini was selected for the post and started working with the band from April. Michael Mangini (born April 18, 1963 in Newton, Massachusetts) is an American drummer, a teacher at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and holds five World's Fastest Drummer world records. He has played for Annihilator, Extreme, James LaBrie, and Steve Vai. With the band again back together with the new drummer, they are going to launch their 11th album later this year. So will Mangini be able to walk on Portnoy's steps? We will find out when their album gets out!...:)
