On October 17, keyboardist Jordan Rudess of progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER gave Keyboardmagazine a “tour” of his stage rig. The footage, which was filmed at the Warner Theatre in Washington D.C., can be seen below.
Rudess in 2009 recorded solo piano versions of some of DREAM THEATER‘s favorite ballads as well as creating some original, progressive piano pieces for an album called “Notes On A Dream”.
Rudess‘ “The Road Home” CD was released in 2007. Having been influenced by classic progressive acts such as GENESIS, YES and GENTLE GIANT, Rudess revisited some of the great songs from those bands with his own special Jordan Rudess touch. He was assisted on “The Road Home” by a great group of guests, such as Nick D’Virgilio (SPOCK’S BEARD), Kip Winger (WINGER), Rod Morgenstein (WINGER), Ed Wynne (OZRIC TENTACLES), Bumblefoot (GUNS N’ ROSES), Marco Sfogli (JAMES LABRIE), Ricky Garcia (LAFEE) and several others.
