Post HOLY CRAP !!!!!!!
:shock: Portnoy and Sykes together?!?!?!? THIS could be THEE SHIT !!! Can't wait to hear it......



Drummer Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ADRENALINE MOB) has joined forces with guitarist/vocalist John Sykes (WHITESNAKE, BLUE MURDER, THIN LIZZY) and an as-yet-undisclosed bassist in a brand new power trio. The project has demoed 12 songs so far at a Los Angeles studio, with Portnoy describing one track as "copping the [LED] ZEPPELIN/[BLACK] SABBATH vibe" and another as "[PINK] FLOYD meets [DEEP] PURPLE!!! Some serious old-school classic rock."

In a posting on his official web site, Portnoy describes the new group as "a completely ridiculous modern-day power trio" and calls it "a new 'real BAND' for me" just as ADRENALINE MOB is "also a new "real BAND" for me." He adds, "I will divide my time as best as I can between the two (hey, if Corey Taylor and Jim Root, Mike Patton, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith, Zakk Wylde all can do it, so can I!) and I am equally excited by both... as they are both amazing new bands, but VERY different worlds musically... so there's really no clash creatively. Timing-wise, ADRENALINE MOB is happening NOW, and my band with Sykes won't be released later next year, so they'll be able to co-exist just fine!"

Portnoy and Sykes appeared yesterday (Monday, July 25) at a taping of season eight of VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show" (see photos below). The program's co-host Eddie Trunk tweeted about their new collaboration, "I heard demos. Sounds like killer BLUE MURDER meets '1987' WHITESNAKE. Amazing!" He also said that the new group will perform some BLUE MURDER material when it hits the road.

In addition to Portnoy, ADRENALINE MOB features SYMPHONY X frontman Russell Allen, guitar virtuoso Mike Orlando (SONIC STOMP), bassist Paul DiLeo and STUCK MOJO/FOZZY axeman Rich Ward. The group made its live debut on June 24 at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City and is presently seeking a suitable record label to release its already completed debut album.

It's probably been said a million times but Sykes is maybe the most underrated rock guitarist ever.
Dude's got riffs.

Ah well...

"John Sykes fans are going to have to wait even longer for any sign of new music as I can confirm today that the guitarist has pulled out of the much hyped John Sykes/Mike Portnoy project. There is no official reason or statement at this point, but it is understood that a new guitarist will step into the picture, the band also featuring a very well-known and popular big bassist."

http://www.melodicrock.com/

But could be worse:

"One more exclusive for you. Replacing John Sykes in the Portnoy project will be Richie Kotzen."

https://twitter.com/#!/MelodicRock/stat ... 6778865666

And at least Billy Sheehan is still in...

I read today on Richie Kotzen's Twitter that he is NOT in a band with Portnoy and Sheehan:

"I wanted to address the recent rumor about the project with Billy, Mike, and I... Although we did throw some ideas around neither of us decided to make any public announcements so today's internet buzz was a surprise. I will say I am a fan of both Mike and Billy. I'm sure a collaboration would produce some interesting results."

Also, for those who do not know, Rich Ward quit Adrenaline Mob :chew:

Do you remember when Ken (or Tom) changed the forum script to disallow all appearances of the words "Rich" and "Ward?" And during this time, any time a member called you by your name, it was replaced by "Jimmy." :D I'm sure you have a personal vendetta to take up against Rich Ward for the despair he has brought to this forum.
