Drumming This Dying Soul

Never thought I'd see the day when I thought watching a man drum for about 7 minutes would be entertaining, but that's Mike Portnoy for you. If you're a fan of "This Dying Soul," check out this footage from Portnoy's drum cam recorded during the Train of Thought sessions: maybe it's the bandwidth on the original recording, but seeing this video helped me pick out some new bits of drum part I couldn't hear before. Seeing Portnoy's hands fly across the set during a fill is pretty spectacular, too.
