This is killer…you have to see Portnoy wailing on a classic VH tune. PMM can’t wait to cover them when they come to Altar Bar Pittsburgh March 14…
GuitarWorld.com has posted an exclusive new video of ADRENALINE MOB recording their cover of ‘Romeo Delight’ (originally by Van Halen) for their new covers album Coverta, hitting stores on March 12, 2013. ADRENALINE MOB, featuring Russell Allen (Symphony X), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), John Moyer (Disturbed) and Mike Orlando (Sonic Stomp), will release a series of these in-depth recording videos via GuitarWorld.com in the coming weeks. Check out the current video of ‘Romeo Delight’ at this location.
ADRENALINE MOB guitarist Mike Orlando states, “Recording ‘Romeo Delight’ was an absolute blast for me. I grew up listening to EVH, and from the moment I heard ‘Eruption,’ I was hooked for life! Tracking the guitars was such a blast, as I plugged in my white-and-black Charvel, my trusty ol’ MXR Phase 90 and went right into my cranked-up Marshall JCM800, entering that EVH zone and giving my all to pay tribute to one of the greatest rock guitarists ever! We had a great time with Mike Portnoy’s idea to insert a medley of kick-ass VH parts in the mid-section while going into a great treat before we head back to the final chorus!”
Coverta is an eight-track EP featuring cover versions of some of the band’s favorite songs. Long-time fans of Mike Portnoy are aware of the multiple cover CDs he has released with Dream Theater and with Neal Morse. Coverta is the first CD of covers recorded by ADRENALINE MOB.
