    ARTISTdirect is beyond stoked to premiere this exclusive Q+A with The Winery Dogs' drummer Mike Portnoy, late of Dream Theater and Adrenaline Mob.

    In this clip, MP talks about why he loves playing live, since he appreciates the deepened connection and interaction with the audience, which is way better than playing to four studio walls.

    He also discusses his Top 5 classic albums and Top 5 modern albums of all time. Find out which records by The Beatles, The Who, Elton John, The Beastie Boys, Mr. Bungle and Radiohead are his faves, among others! He has some pretty awesome taste.

    The band released its self-titled debut via Loud & Proud Records on July 23, so get to know 'em a little better via this clip and then go buy the album.

    The Dogs' lineup is rounded out by Mr. Big bassist Billy Sheehan and singer/guitarist Richie Kotzen. The band traffics in the classic rock/power trio style and each member is a veteran of the rock scene with an impressive pedigree and background, not to mention drool-worthy skill sets.

    So sit back, relax and settle in. Get to know The Winery Dogs now through this Q+A.



    Will you be checking out The Winery Dogs and their debut album? Don't snooze on it, rockers!
