Mike Portnoy Interested in Collaborating With Opeth's Akerfeldt: 'Would Love to, Let's Go Man!'
Back in 2010, Mike Portnoy was involved with a project featuring Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree and Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt.

Although the trio kicked things off nicely, Mike was ultimately left out of the equation due to the lack of need for any sort of drumming on the material the guys have composed.

But during a recent Q&A session on Twitter, Portnoy was asked to address the matter once again, sharing an open stance about the idea.

Asked by a fan if he's "ever gonna team up with Akerfeldt for a project," the drummer replied, "Can't do a Q&A without this Q! Would love to ... Let's go man!"

The 2010 split was an amicable one, so there's definitely no bad blood between the guys to prevent further collaborations.

"To be honest, there's just no room for drums on what we've done so far," Akerfeldt told Classic Rock about four years ago. "I called Mike up, and he was cool about it. He's got so much going on anyway, and I'm sure we will work together in the future."

During the rest of the Q&A, Mike has also unveiled that the Winery Dogs have tracked down eight cover songs while recording their debut record, which are "sadly collecting dust."
