Mike Portnoy's The Beatles Tribute Band Releases CD, DVD

After having had such a fun experience the first time around in 2003, drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater), guitarist Paul Gilbert (Racer X, Mr. Big) and guitarist/keyboardist Neal Morse (ex-Spock's Beard) reunited as Yellow Matter Custard in February 2011 to once again pay tribute to their greatest influence of all: The Beatles. Due to a scheduling conflict (and further fueling the "Paul is dead" rumors), original Yellow Matter Custard bassist Matt Bissonette was unable to join the band this time and was replaced by Utopia legend Kasim Sulton.

      The setlist is different, some better songs were added which is cool, but they played gently weeps so well, paul gilbert ruled that solo, i cant believe they didnt play that.

      I can't see Mike Portney covering the Beatles without going all Avenged Sevenfold in the middle of Strawberry Feilds Forever

      For those who are surprised about Mike Portnoy being in this, he did mention it in Metal Hammer a while ago, being their biggest fan and such.
