    Default Mike Mangini - Drummer



    Another killer drummer / teacher. One of the best things IMO to happen to Dream Theater in a long time.

    A really, REALLY top shelf drummer. Always liked all his stuff, especially with Annihilator.
    I lucked out and scored a Mike Mangini autographed Oriental trash that he played during a drum clinic at a tennesee drum store. Got it for less than new at GC. Still can't play like him. Lol

    I think he is an awesome drummer and was the perfect fit for DT, arguably Marco is better but I still think Mangini was a better fit out of all those they auditioned.

    A very good fit for Dream Theater. Those guys seem actually happy now. I bet one reason is Portnoy "the drama queen" is no longer there. Not taking anything away from the guy's playing... He is a top notch drummer but being an awesome drummer and a crybaby are two different things. Oh boy... I hope I dont get too much heat for that comment...

    What an amazing video. He's so fast. He moves his hands from one side of the kit to the other and way up top so quickly. It's incredible really.

    Not just one of my favourite drummers but he always comes across as such a cool, down to earth guy.

    A great example to all musicians.

    He is extraordinary at his craft! I saw him with Dream Theater last year and then went to one of his clinics.

    That video simply amazes me. It is a perfect video that shows complete Independence on each limb. Separation and split of the brain. Simply a machine if there is any in human form.

    The line between the real world and the machine world is becoming more and more blurred every day.But its not that humans are turning into automations or becoming slaves to the machines.No, we're simply growing toward each other!

    Agreed, his drum parts on the new DT track are great. Good track too, but the mix is kinda bizarre. His snare sounds like it's overly gated/compressed, or something along those lines.

    Mikes extensive knowledge and skills has helped inspire me and invigorated my playing.
    I really appreciate his style and dexterity on a large kit.
    Being a teacher he sounds like the type of cat you could meet and pick his brain without reservation!!!!

    I'd heard of Mike Mangini before but had not heard a lot of his playing until he joined DT. After watching the Live at Luna Park DVD several times he has quickly become one of my favorite drummers. He's quite an amazing drummer.
