This tour is going to be insane. I can't imagine how huge the sound is going to be with a full complement of intruments. Waiting is painful.

Billy does have a very compressed, midrangy (I know, not a word) sound that is reminiscent of two guys I'm sure he listened to a lot in his formative years - The great Jack Bruce and the also great Tim Bogert. It is not my favorite tone either (I prefer a bit more warmth), but it is distinctive and there is nothing like it on earth when the Power Twins go off.

You should check out Dave LaRue.

Dave LaRue is best known for playing with Steve Morse (Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse Band). I saw him live with Planet X. So that's all before he played with Petrucci :wink:
