    Never saw that video. Shreddy is quite the bad ass on the keys. I think it's tough for anyone whose not perceived as being in at least a ProgPower stature band to get their just due. But clearly he can hold his own with anyone.

    Ha! I always thought Shreddy was Portnoy's doppelganger.

    lol thanks.

    You busted one out from the archives on that video, that was so long ago.

    Funny story about that video, I rejoined the band the day of that video shoot. Months before this video was shot the band was going to go to Europe on a tour. I just couldn’t afford it, basically I didn’t have enough money saved up to cover my mortgage and expenses plus for a month. I was going to get paid enough money to cover food and beer (me + Europe = huge beer tab). We came to a mutual agreement that I would part ways with the band so they could continue on with the tour etc.. Well the tour fell through but there was money for a video shoot they wanted me back in for the shoot and at that point I was back in the band until the eventual collapse of that lineup.

    If you like that stuff in the video there are a couple songs on the Mindwarp Chamber Supernova disc that you'll love. But being more prog minded there is a mix of slower melodic songs too.

    I'm also much a much lazier guitarist so don't expect any Yngwie-licks from me. Maybe one or two, haha.

    Ed, you've been rockin' it up forever man. I'm glad people here recognize what I get to see every week!

    There is a CD release party in the works which hopefully will be in the Spring.

    More than likely the show will be in the city.

    I think Closer to Heaven off the Supernova disc is just about a perfect song. Has so many elements I like. And it features Shreddy and Mike with some dueling solos like in this video. Good stuff. Can't wait for the release party!
