Ex-ICED EARTH/DEATH Drummer Performs Solo With DREAM THEATER's PORTNOY: Video Available

Drummer Richard Christy (ex-ICED EARTH, DEATH, LEASH LAW, CONTROL DENIED) has updated his web site with a video clip of him playing a drum solo with DREAM THEATER's Mike Portnoy on August 23, 2005 in Jones Beach, New York.

Commented Christy: "I'm so honored to have been invited to play a drum solo with one of my all-time favorite drummers Mike Portnoy of DREAM THEATER. I was so nervous because not only was the show in front of a huge crowd at Jones Beach Ampitheater in Long Island, New York, but also sitting next to me would be a true drumming legend!

"I met up with Mike before the show and we hung out on his bus and mapped out our drum solo. The solo went really well and I had a blast ripping it up with Mike on his massive drum kit!"
