Mike Portnoy and John Sykes?!?

http://www.bravewords.com/news/166116

I'm kind of over Portnoy, but John Sykes rules so this definitely caught my attention.

This should be interesting. If it sounds like Blue Murder and 1987 era Whitesnake like Eddie Trunk says it does, then it has great potential.

It's a band with Sykes, I'll check it out...even though "Nuclear Cowboy" wasn't overly good. I'm curious who the bassist is they're working with....Tony Franklin? Marco Mendoza? Anybody know yet?

Instead of having 2 bands (other one being Adrenaline Mob with Russel Allen), he should take Russel in to this band with John Sykes. That would be exciting!

I second that emotion. Wonder who the bassist will be.

I actually like Sykes as a singer, so I don't see much of a gain there.

It's not Mendoza, as he's touring with Thin Lizzy at the moment.

I hope it's Tony Franklin!! This way if they play out we can hear some Blue Murder material.

okay from MP,

John & I have been working with a bass player as well (no, not Dug Pinnick) and the announcement of who it is will be made at a later point...let's just say it is a completely ridiculous modern-day power trio!!!

dUg Pinnick would not fit if it's supposed to be a "band" situation. I am a Pinnick fanboy, and he can do anything once (The Mob) but as an overall stylistic fit, he, Sykes and Portnoy would be too disjointed if Sykes & Pinnick were given equal writing room.

It's a moot point, obviously, but I don't think that Doug would really care about being involved in the songwriting. He's shown himself to be perfectly willing to sing other people's material (The Mob, Living Colour, Razr 13, the crappy tribute albums he's way too good to be doing), as between King's X and his solo project, he's got plenty of creative opportunities.

I really wish it was him, as he's a much, much better singer than Sykes.

I'll share this backlash with you because I kind of agree.

I think he was tired of Dream Theater and wanted those guys to take the break.

via www.melodicrock.com :

"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."

Well, that killed any interest I had in that project. I was so looking forward toward new music from Sykes.
