As we entered the Christmas period the drum world showed no sign of slowing down. The month was filled with jaw-dropping nice, like Dave Grohl appearing on the new Michael Jackson album. Didn't see that one coming, did you?
Meanwhile, with 2010 undoubtedly being the year of Portnoy, Dream Theater announced that they had found a new drummer. But they weren't telling us who just yet.
Back with Portnoy, a huge bombshell was dropped when Mike announced his involvement with Avenged would cease at the end of 2010. Leaving him without a gig and Avenged again looking for a new drummer.
Another band that we thought were on the lookout for a new drummer was Chickenfoot, but Chad kept us guessing by this month saying that he would be able to record with the band in 2011. We really can't keep up with these guys.
Phew, so that was 2010. A huge year for drumming and also for Rhythm, and 2011 is looking every bit as jam-packed. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, we'll see you in 2011.
