Theater and Lightning?

Ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and 'Thunder and Lightning' era Thin Lizzy guitarist John Sykes have teamed up in a new 'power-trio' with a yet to be confirmed bass player in the ranks…

Currently thrashing out ideas in an LA studio, it looks as though the trio are destined more for the classic-rock camp than the prog side with Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple already having been cited by Portnoy as the style of the first couple of tracks being laid down! Although Pink Floyd have also been mentioned so maybe some progressive leanings are destined to surface?

Whether any 'obvious' signature Portnoy prog-metal-tastic drumming will be on display is as yet unclear but either way the trio is sure to be an exciting prospect for the rock world alike!
