This issue, we catch up with Dream Theater’s Mike Mangini. It might only seem like a few years since Mike – along with a host of heavyweights – auditioned to join the band, but it has, in fact, been just short of a decade. Of course, Mike was a seasoned pro with an extremely varied career pre-DT, spanning huge sessions, world records and top-level education. In this candid interview, Mike talks openly to Rhythm about the challenges of replacing Mike Portnoy, one of the most influential drummers of the last 30 years (and driving forces behind the operation), and how nearly a decade in he’s putting his stamp on both old and new material with the prog giants. Elsewhere this month we speak to Clutch’s JP Gaster, take a look at…

power trio

“The show will feature a drum solo from each drummer and in the end a fabulous finale with all the musicians involved” The word legend is bandied about willy nilly these days, but when it comes to the Drum Legends show that is coming to Brighton this spring, it is a well-earned moniker. That’s because three men befitting of that oft-overused term are teaming up. And even better than that, it’s three players who will not only bring stellar CVs but also wildly different experiences, styles and approaches to drumming. The one-and-only Ginger Baker, Scorpions’ rock hero Herman Rarebell and Spencer Davis Group’s pioneering sticksman Pete York are teaming up for this special one-off UK performance. The three will be playing some of the many hits from their careers at the Brighton Dome on…
