Derek Sherinian

Keyboard virtuoso Derek Sherinian made a name for himself in the post-Dream Theater world of progressive metal both as a sideman and a solo artist in his own right. Sherinian grew up in California and studied at the Berklee School of Music, where he perfected his hard rock and fusion chops. He landed touring gigs with Alice Cooper and Kiss in the late '80s/early '90s, and became a full-time member of Dream Theater in September 1994. Sherinian was fired in January 1999, and shortly thereafter hooked up with the neo-prog outfit Platypus. Sherinian recorded his solo debut, Planet X, for release in 2000, and subsequently formed a band of the same name featuring drummer Virgil Donati and guitarist Tony MacAlpine. Sherinian issued his second solo album, Rhapsody in Black, in the spring of 2001. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Personally I think these Planet X albums are the Cream of the Crop for all the players involved. Amazing progressive rock! Hearing Jeff Beck flavors all over this one! Great Playing! These albums are worth owning!

I met Sherinian in the '00s, recording some of my compositions at his place. He's an amazing shredder on rock keyboards, knows his equipment and programming, and knows how to record to get real balls on his tracks. Doesn't have the classical background to be a lyrical pianist, but when you can shred like him, you capitalize on that! While Sherinian's springboard was Dream Theater, he is actually much more into rock than prog. (He says he doesn't really even like DT's music). So I think that

imitation is the highest form of flattery - Jeff Beck did it first - but hey, this is good music...

I am pretty sure that is Simon Phillips on drums (who played on the original Jeff Beck track in '78) Wikipedia lists Phillips as the drummer on Inertia and Black Utopia.

While I can understand Ruddess of all people replacing this guy, Sherinian certainly is a monster musician!

Inspiring! I really like the fact that it is not all keyboards! Makes me want to hit the road...in a car or on a bike!!!

The only piece by Sherinan that shows up on my station is "One Way or the Other," which sounds like a cross between the Dixie Dregs and Jean-Luc Ponty. Whatever it is, it's a pleasure.

Yup, sounds a LOT like modern Beck, mixed in with some Ronnie Montrose.

Derek's Planet X releases is where Derek sounds the tightest track to track. His solo releases with guests are titch variable with "hit or miss" trax. But every now and then a cut on a solo releases is phenomenal.

Derek Sherinian is stupid.... ALL his music ROCKS!!! Great choices for musicians to play on his albums every time. Check out "God of War", it might be his best work.
