Watch Mike Portnoy play classic metal songs on a mini Hello Kitty drum-kit

It’s not every day you get to see one of metal’s greatest drummers lay into a mini Hello Kitty-themed kit. But thanks to Loudwire you can watch ex-Dream Theater skinsman Mike Portnoy do just that. Perched behind one kick-drum, one snare, one rack and one cymbal, Portnoy plays “name this song” belting through classic rock hits by KISS, Slayer, Rush and more. His between song banter (“Dave Lombardo wouldn’t play this shit!”) is pretty on point as well. Watch below.
