Adrenaline Mob, that Morse project, now a "power trio" with John Sykes and a bassist TBA...


From Eddie Trunk's Twitter:

Wow check out this shot. http://t.co/s3aTd1O

News just broke on the set of TMS! New power trio! John Sykes. @MikePortnoy and a bassist TBA. Awesome!!

Its on!! I knew about this but needed to wait till we tapes to reveal! They will do some Blue Murder also & recording http://t.co/Bz79fAN

Name of the new Sykes Portnoy band TBA. Bassist TBA. I heard demos. Sounds like killer Blue Murder meets '87 Whitesnake. Amazing!

Busy guy. Is he trying to fill a void in his life?

Last time I checked Ty Tabor was doing solo albums, King's X, Jelly Jam and a variety of other projects.

Quality musicians SHOULD be that busy, Portnoy is no exception. Good for him.

If it's like Whitesnake/Blue Murder, I'm all for it.

I'd be happier if it sounded like Thunder & Lightning. Very Happy

my guess as to whom the TBA bass player is....Tony Franklin

This sounds interesting from a muxical perspective.

Portnoy has always done this....even in Dream Theater. This way, he stays as busy as he wants without having a "main" band to have to report to. He's a free agent. Besides, Adrenaline Mob is cool, but Allen has Symphony X to report to so it's still in in-between thing for him.

Hmmmm, having Sykes on board sounds a little more promising than that other project. I like Portnoy, but after hearing some clips, I just can't get excited over the Adreneline Mob stuff.

Didn't mike portnoy want dream theater to slow down a bit and take some time out which leaded to his exit from the band?

He's always been a busy man and had loads of side projects over the years but did he really expect dream theater to sit around while he ran around with all his other bands. Glad they told him to get lost if that's the case.

Bump for new info...

Quote :
Ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy has announced the name of the project hes completed after he stopped working with guitarist John Sykes. The Winery Dogs features Riche Kotzen in Sykes place alongside bassist Billy Sheehan. Their album, described as a really cool, unique record, is due out in May.

Quote :
a really cool, unique record,

That sounds like it could be a weird, proggy instrumental album with limited appeal. Good or bad? Guess it will be in the ears of the beholder.

How exactly did you get "weird, proggy instrumental" from the phrase "a really cool, unique record"? That description couldn't be any more vague.

Also, Sheehan has stated that Richie "sings his ass off" in this project...

I dunno. If it were someting more "rock", why wouldn't he say "It's rock". Or blues. Or whatever. Saying that it's "cool and unique" without any direction and the given participants led me to belive it's gonna be something more "out there" with limited appeal.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing. Just a first impression I had. Don't read too deep into my posts. I talk out of my ass more often than not. I didn't see anything about Richie singing his ass off, so I wrongly assumed instrumental music. Pardon the f*ck outta me.

Buncha friggin elitists 'round here. Geez.

I'm just saying it won't be instrumental...that's all. Laughing very hard

And knowing Richie, who abandoned the technical stuff a long time ago, I expect a LOT of groove and soul...especially if he's singing.

An album helmed by an assless Richie Kotzen? Count me out.

I could retort about Richie's playing abilities, but I don't dare speculate on the direction of this recording anymore. I'll wait until some actual music gets posted. crazy happy

Oh, Kotzen is a bonafide bad@$$ on guitar...he can shred out with the best of them...he just chooses not to.

Yea, I've heard some of his funk/groove/blues stuff. Can't say I cared much for it though.
